Topic tags/keywords: gift hoodie secret santa

In 2 of my advanced level Woodshop classes, the students (Grades 11 & 12) organized a secret Santa and included me in on the action. Knowing that I can’t really give out tools (sharp blades + School rules = bad news) I always design and make hoodies for my recipients. I got the inspiration online, but printed them myself in our graphics lab.

Standard “Fruit of the Loom” Zip up hoodies from Walmart, but they are ridiculously comfortable. And now, they are ridiculously Stylish, too.

Merry Christmas to all Yinz woodworkers out in LumberLand.

I like the hoodies and great gifts. I am always glad to hear that woodworking is being taught in a school. You might share some of the things that you do in class.

They are all going to want one. Looks like a great fundraising idea.

I think the idea is great, the printing is excellent. The message is a little skewed on language! Should read

“Learning to make things is extremely important!

Fine looking hoodies. I like the message. I think WW is more importanter too. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
