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 or at the Museum at regularly scheduled events throughout 2020.

  • August 25, 2020 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • September 22, 2020 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Members of the Stick’N Needles Guild will be on hand to help participants with the poppy patterns. Coffee, tea and yarn will be provided at these events, but please bring your own needles or hook if you have them.

The COVID crisis hit all of us, the St. Catharines Museums and Welland Canals Centre and Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum both adapted to the times.  Let Kathleen Powell and Sarah Kaufman let us know how they adapted, what struggles they have had, their successes and how they have prepared to open their doors to the public.   Grab a drink and a snack and learn a bit more about museums during these interesting times.
