The Poppy Project

The Elizabeth Lundy Knit and Crochet Society


The Poppy Project is a collaborative community art project by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick'N Needles Guild.
The Museum needs your help to create a large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the Museum for Remembrance Day. The public is asked to create these poppies at home.

During the current crisis, would love to see social media posts with you making poppies #nfpoppyproject and tag the Museums.  See instructions below for safely dropping your poppies off at the Museum.

Please submit your poppies by September 15, 2020 

Follow our social media accounts as we approach Remembrance Day to see the finished work
