The Poppy Project Museum Call to Action

The Poppy Project is a collaboration between the community art project by the Niagara Falls History Museum with the assistance of the Stick’n Needles Guild. Located in Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada.

They are creating a large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the museum for Remembrance Day for 2020.

They are doing a call to action to enthusiastic crocheters and knitters, just like to help contribute some poppies for this installation. Currently, the museum is closed due to COVID-19 but asking crocheters and knitters to spend some time making a few poppies. They are asking you hold onto your poppies until the museum re-opens. You can either drop them off or send them by mail.

The goal is 2500 poppies for this exhibit and needed by September.

There are two patterns, one for knitters and one for crocheters. Please use the recommended patterns. Using Cherry Red or bright red with black yarn. They are asking you to leave in the tails to be 10″ long so they can tie it to the draping. So no tail ends to weave in. You’re lucky. The knitting design is compliments of Susan Simms and the crochet design is by Hania Wojtowicz.

The free patterns have been provided in the link INFO button below.

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.

    Just FYI – I am mailing a package to you with some poppies. The post office here says that the postal code does not match the address. Would you check on this.

    1. Mikey says:

      Let me see if I can get you an email to the people who are running this. I just wrote down what was on the brochure.

    2. Mikey says:

      On the print out for the pattern. There’s a second address. Try that one. I have no contact information for anyone involved in this.
