2020 Winter Ornament Contest

It's time to start crafting for our annual ornament contest!  Each year, we invite our customers to create a hanging ornament using their favorite fiber craft. Ornaments are displayed in our shop window for a week, 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!
