The poppy project is underway


At the inaugural meeting in January, knitters and crochet-makers of all abilities came together at the Old House at Home. They marvelled at the wonder that is the magic circle and pondered the intricacies of the slip stitch.

Knitting and crochet with The Poppy Project

Sue Clark, who got this whole ball of wool rolling says:


I thought initially we might only get enough to do a very simple display perhaps within the church, but we have at least 50 poppies made already.More people are joining in and it can be very addictive to do. I find myself picking the wool up at every given moment! I’m hoping for 250 poppies as a credible goal which will probably give us a decent drape and I think that can now be easily achieved. After that the church tower is the limit! I think that is a possibility.


Sue’s inspiration: from a village in Nottinghamshire

Existing poppy producers are encouraged to drop a line in the leave a reply section at the foot of the page, to say how they are getting on, and perhaps pledge your personal goal.


Don’t worry, you can do as many or as few as you like, every poppy counts.
