We’ve just received this mega donation of knitted and crocheted poppies from West Norfolk Libraries – there are 1,194 poppies in this bag! Staff and customers at King’s Lynn and Dersingham Libraries created each of these unique flowers, and donated them our Poppy Project for display during the Armistice centenary commemorations next year.
You don’t have to be a knitter to take part – people have created poppies out of cardboard, crepe paper tissue, and felt, and even coloured some in. You can use your favourite crafting techniques or try something new. Be creative!
There is still a long way to go until we reach our poppy target – find out more about the project here and get in touch if you’d like to get involved!
