Making Poppies at Glenreagh CWA

Lynette McHugh Campton of the CWA Glenreagh Branch, North Coast, NSW shared an image from their friendship day yesterday.  She writes …  Here is Elsie sewing up one of the two and a half poppies she knitted today, and I crocheted 7 … would have got more done if I hadn’t talked and laughed so much, we had a fun time poppying. Two new ladies joined us today and they are keen to knit some poppies and our President Barbara is going to take the patterns along to a fibre craft group they belong to in Grafton, she is thinking they will want to be involved with the project as well.

The word is spreading and I am loving it that we have champions like Lynette to help it along.

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.
