Every November, the Niagara Falls Museum sets up a display for Remembrance Day, a day where we remember the armed forces who died in the line of duty during WWI. This year the Museum will also be remembering prolific knitter and Canadian Legacy, Elizabeth Lundy. Elizabeth inspired this year’s display through her love of knitting and her great efforts during WWI, when she knit 300 socks for Canadian troops. The display will be a large-scale installation of knit and crochet poppies that will drape over the exterior of the museum during the month of November.
