Get out the knitting needles! 5000 Poppies Project - 11th Feb 2014

Get out the knitting needles! 5000 Poppies Project


As part of the 2015 Gallipoli commemorations, the 5000 Poppies Project (NZ) will be creating a wall of more than 5000 poppies at the Auckland War Memorial Museum as a stunning visual tribute to New Zealand servicemen and women for more than a century of service in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

They would love for your members to be involved and are inviting all crafters or anyone who wants to give it a go to participate in this heartfelt project. Poppies can be crocheted, knitted, felted or sewn from any materials. Any shade of red can be used and poppies should be no more than 15 cm in diameter. Patterns can be found on the website below but feel free to get creative! Check out their site or Facebook page for more information.
