Nevins Library Poppy Project

This Summer we need your help creating felt, crocheted, and knitted poppies for a large scale art project to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the First Armistice Day and remember those lost in World War I.

To honor the 100th Anniversary of the First Armistice Day, the Nevins Library is introducing our Poppy Project. We invite our community to help us make poppies for a large scale art project to remember those lost in World War I. We will be knitting, crocheting, and creating poppies from felt.

We’ll have drop in times between now and the beginning of November where the Library will provide supplies and you provide your talent!


We’re also going to have an amazing program on World War I history on October 30th at 7pm.

Marc LaPlante will present a talk about some of the World War I veterans from Methuen, and the Merrimack Valley.

Sign Up HERE.


If you prefer to help with the project from home or with your own crafty group? The Library has patterns available!

You can also find so many more patterns on the website, 5000 Poppies, just scroll down a bit on the page.

And remember, when you’re done making your amazing creations, please drop completed poppies off to Sarah at the Main Desk.

Note: If you would like to support the project, but do not have time to make poppies or do not enjoy crafts like this – we will be accepting donations of red and black yarn. Also, you may donate $1 at the Main Desk and let us know the name of a Vet you’d like to honor. We will include your Vet’s name on a ribbon with the poppies in the final display.

Thank you for your help in making sure these Veterans are never forgotten.
