Knit and Natter

To make Hand Crafted Poppies

A tribute to the 11,000 Devon men and women who lost their lives in the First World War will be staged at the 2017 Devon County Show. This commemoration will be made of hand crafted poppies and put together to create a carpet of red.

The poppies can be knitted, crocheted, made from lace or felt, in fact anything but paper. Handcrafted poppies will be a poignant memorial and, highly appropriate for hand made flowers, will be staged in the magnificent craft and garden pavilion. If you are making the poppy in memory of a relative who died in the War a tag with the name of the person can be added.

Deborah Custance-Baker, who is a Devon County Agricultural Association Board of Management Director, is asking the public to get involved, so this is where we can take part.

On Friday 10th March at 2pm there will be a knit in and free Cream Tea in Feniton Church where we can have a collective 'Knit and Natter' to make the poppies. Anyone can come along, the more the merrier, but bring a pair of size 10 needles and some double knitting poppy red wool. A limited supply of needles and red wool will be available should you not have any or forgot to bring it along. Patterns will be printed or you can bring a pattern of your own and help will be on hand for the knitters.

 to the Cathedral where they will be sold and the proceeds will be donated to the Royal British Legion.

Please come along to help make a poppy or poppies and for any more detail please contact me on 01404 850699.
