2020 Secret Winter Gift Swap at Northfield Yarn

This year has brought new and unexpected challenges, and we're all looking for ways to continue to connect with each other, spread joy, and celebrate winter traditions while staying safe during the pandemic. Since we can't gather in person at the shop for Winter Walk or Open Stitch, we're introducing something new: Secret Winter Gift Swap at Northfield Yarn!

Each person who signs up to participate will both give and get a gift. We'll provide you with information about your giftee to help you put together something fun for them, but the person who's giving you a gift will remain a secret! We ask that at least one item in your gift be purchased at Northfield Yarn.

How to participate:
  • Sign up by November 27
  • You will be assigned a "swap buddy" during week of November 30
  • Shop for your buddy and leave your secret gift at Northfield Yarn by December 19
  • Northfield Yarn will notify participants when their secret swap gift is available for pick up at the shop; pick up gifts by December 31
  • Total value of swap should be $20-25
  • Include your name and a note inside your package! If you are comfortable doing so, you can also include contact information so your swap buddy can thank you for their gift.

Since the pandemic has seriously disrupted shipping and delivery times for packages, and since this is our first year hosting a gift swap, we are limiting swap participants to those who are able to come to the shop in person to pick up their gift. We are also able to personally deliver gifts in the Northfield area to participants who are unable to come to the shop. Next year, we hope that shipping, gathering and shopping will all be much easier!
