My wife and I where on the 100 aniversory for ANZAC Cruise and one of the things that happened was knitting poppies for the graves at Gallipoli. My wife and I joined the group. My crochet was not great but I had fun doing it. We have our wool and will get started.
Look forward to seeing your poppies.
We didn’t make it to Gallipoli but it was lovely to see that the poppies did.
I would like to support the Poppy making project, I am wondering if there are any groups participating in the Yarra Valley.
I am not aware of any groups operating out of the Yarra Valley but we have a very active facebook group and you could use this to contact people in your local area and perhaps start one.
Many of the libraries have knitting groups and you could work through them if you wish.
Our facebook group is 5000 Poppies.
Its very active and we share pics and patterns constantly.
Thank you for your very kind offer.
We will actually be doing our setup in mid October for Remembrance day so that the poppies are up for 4-5 weeks.
We will also, however, be there on Remembrance Day so hope to catch up with you.
Keep poppying on!!!
