What's in a Name- Midnight Oil Smockers

The largest refining of crude oil in the US is Exxon/Mobil located just outside of Houston in Baytown situated along the Houston Ship Channel.

The name “Midnight Oil Smockers” was chosen by our founding group because with young families the members seemed to do most of their smocking late at night, burning the midnight oil.

The logo, an oil lamp, represents the heritage of grandmothers and great-grandmothers who stitched by lamplight after the day’s work was done.

Thanks to Tawn Hunka for the orgins of her chapters name. Let us know about the origins of your chapters name. Email me at
