Poppies People

I am a little thrilled to show you some of the work that our poppy makers are doing … Playing with yarn and materials …. This first one is from Marg.  She has used eyelash yarn for the centre … I think it looks amazing.

The next one is from Courtney … she started out crocheting poppies but was trying to find a simple poppy style that she could work on with her students.  Looks brilliant and quite simple to do.

Keep up the amazing work ladies.

About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.
