Hi Crafty Gransnetters,
I recently made a poppy for this project - and am posting this in case anyone else feels like joining in. The poppies that are sent in will form part of a large wreath that will be exhibited at Friends House in London.
Here's the link for more info, info is also copied below - patterns are provided in the leaflet:
"We invite you to make one or more poppies to honour a particular victim that you know of, whether or not you know their name. Your poppy could be sewn, knitted, crocheted, or felted. It need not be pure white , and could be plain or highly decorated, with or without a leaf. You could embroider the victim’s name or a symbol on the poppy or attach a tag to it with their name or story. You can download the leaflet here to help you make your own!
You might then wear your poppy yourself (stitching a brooch pin to the back), give it to somebody else, join with others to make a wreath to honour a particular group of war victims or to join a local WW1 commemoration in November.
Alternatively you could send your poppies in to join a central installation. These should be sent (by 8th October 2018) to: Collateral Damage White Poppies, c/o QPSW, Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ".
