Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project


We are working with @woolly_works on a Poppy Stitching Project for #remembrance.

Poppies have a long history as symbols of remembrance. Through stitching a poppy, and through the artwork we will create together, we will remember those from all nations and all conflicts who lost their lives in war, and the sacrifices made by men, women, children and animals in the pursuit of peace. We will be sharing the names and stories of over 100 service personnel who are commemorated in the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries throughout the project.

There are four colours of poppy to choose from, to sign up please email josie.wall@jqdt.org
