Craft and Quilt Fair Melbourne

Hello poppy friends … just thought I would let you know that 5000 Poppies will be at the Craft and Quilt Fair in Melbourne (MECC/Jeff’s Shed) from tomorrow (Thursday) through to Sunday spreading the poppy word and making lots of lovely poppies.  We would love it if you could join us to make a poppy or two or just to say hello.  Bring a hook or needles … we have plenty of yarn. We are in Aisle G … behind G21 … you can’t miss us … we are the spectacular poppy display …. thank you Kate for your help today!!!  We have a blank wall ready for all the new poppies made at the fair.

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.
