Would You Like to Contribute?

Leeds Grenville Fibre Extravanganza is looking for knitters or crocheters to help them make a Remembrance Day Display in the town of Kemptville, Ontario. They are looking to collect up to 5,000 poppies.

The free pattern for the knit and crochet poppies is called 5,000 Poppies. You can download that here if you wish. Please note the mailing address on the bottom of the pattern is not the same organization. They are just sharing the pattern.

If you are not local, you are welcome to mail in your poppies. Even just a handful would greatly help them. They can be mailed to:

Leeds Grenville Fibre Extravaganza

779 County Road 44

Kemptville, Ontario,

K0G 1J0,


For more information, please visit their Facebook Page where they are arranging all of this. They have local locations to drop off to as well.

PS. This organization emailed us here at The Crochet Crowd asking for permission and I have written this blog so others may know about it. This is not a paid ad nor are we affiliated to this campaign. They are not looking for money, just finished crochet and knit poppies. 

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
