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.

    Hi Lesley …. this Anzac Day is not the final display …. this is just a big workshop we have planned. The real display is this time NEXT year … and there will be TV galore. I expect there may be some TV coverage this year though …. so don’t be disappointed with just the small display we will have happening tomorrow. It’s all for next year.

    Sorry I couldn’t make it yesterday, I have poppies to hand over at the next GTG in early May. Our daughter stopped by to have a look and she said it was lovely to see you all sitting there knitting.

    Hi everyone,

    I dropped off my poppies to my local library. Felt great to make something to remember my fathers efforts

    In WW2.

    I have included a pic of my poppy.

    I saw on Pinterest some poppies made with egg cartons. Thought it would be a good idea for schoolkids to

    make and participate.

    They were for US Memorial day 2014 to remember their troops.

    My daughters (7 and 10) and I had a wonderful time on Friday. Seeing the march brought home to them something about the solemnity of Anzac Day, and they loved making felt poppies in the sunshine. (And eating the biscuits.) But they did need a lot of help, so that I couldn’t really make anything? We wondered if they can make some poppies using their rainbow looms? There are a few poppy patterns out there on YouTube. For example:
