Heathcote Knitters hit their target for the 5000 poppies project so quickly they've doubled it.GRAHAM WILLIS June 13, 2014 3:10am
When Heathcote Knitters joined the quest to help create a field of more than 5000 handcrafted poppies in Federation Square in Melbourne, there was little idea how the project might evolve.
Heathcote Knitters are celebrating achieving their goal of knitting 500 poppies for the project.
The response was so strong the group has set a new target of 1000 poppies which will be displayed on Remembrance Day.
The collection is on display at the City of Greater Bendigo offices.
A morning tea will be held for anyone who contributed to the 5000 poppy project at the Heathcote Residents’ Resource Hub.
This will coincide with Worldwide Knit in Public Day on Friday at the Hub from 10.30am.
