Ornament Contest

We are hosting an ornament contest this year, culminating at Winter Walk, Thursday, Dec. 12th. The timeline is as follows:

Nov. 30: Deadline for dropping off ornaments at the shop

Dec. 6-12: Ornaments on display in our window; votes are collected

Dec. 13: Winner announced. (Winner will receive a $25 Northfield Yarn gift card!)


The ornament must be created using one of the following fiber-crafts:

  • Knitting
  • Crochet
  • Felting (needle-felting or wet-felting)
  • Cross-stitch
  • Embroidery
  • Needlepoint

It must be no more than 5 inches across in any direction.

It must be submitted with a loop or hook suitable for displaying the ornament in our window.

Include with submission: your name, phone number, and email address so that we can contact you if you are the winner. (We'll have a form available at the shop, which you can choose to use for your convenience.)

Ornaments must be dropped off and picked up in person, no mail in submissions or returns.

Limit: No more than two entries per person.

You can use this link to get a handy download that includes all of these details.

And then don't forget to stop by during Winter Walk to see the display and vote for your favorite!
