2022 Winter Ornament Contest (Winner Announced!)

Winner of the 2022 Winter Ornament Contest, crocheted mouse with book

Congratulations to the winner of our 2022 Winter Ornament Contest, Amanda M.! Amanda crocheted an adorable mouse, dressed in holiday garb and holding a book. 

This year, we received 10 entries for the contest, and 253 of our community members voted to select the winner. Thank you to all who participated in this annual tradition!


Each year, we invite our customers to create a hanging ornament using their favorite fiber craft. Ornaments are displayed in our shop window during Northfield's Winter Walk and the following weekend, and community members are asked to vote for their favorite. The maker of the ornament with the most votes wins a $25 Northfield Yarn gift certificate!
