I am feeling quite excited about this month. On Anzac Day we start the countdown to 2015 … I can’t believe how quickly that came about … and there is lots happening.
I met with the ladies from the RSL Womens Council yesterday to talk about the project, and to pick up a huge hoard of poppies (yet to be counted) … what a wonderful group of committed ladies. I have a workshop at Wondoflex Yarncraft Centre in Malvern this Saturday from 2.00 until 4.00 p.m. and another workshop in Fed Square on Monday 14th. Marg is talking to the Mornington Peninsula Quilters on Monday also and I am heading off to Daylesford Library on 17th and then we have Fed Square on 25th from 11.00 til 4.00 p.m. Don’t forget Fed Square on 25th. I would love to see a huge number of people join us in Fed Square to commemorate Anzac Day … we will have lots fun making poppies … and I am dreaming about coming home with a suitcase full of poppies that day.
There will be more workshops coming up over the next year so don’t worry too much if you miss out … but we would love to meet you at some stage if you are Melbourne based.
And … of course there are many more workshops happening out and about with new groups coming on board and people championing the 5000 Poppies cause … so if you want to attend a workshop in your local area … ask at the library and if you can’t find one … why not start one up for yourself. I can email you some materials to get you started!!!
