Help us make masks for the healthcare industry!
As COVID-19 continues to spread, there is a growing need for more masks for our healthcare professionals. Our seamstresses have started to use our fabric to start making masks that can fit over N95 masks or other filtering masks
. We have communicated with local doctors in Minnesota about desired specifications and they have given us some guidance on what designs would be the most suitable for them. We are working on getting them these masks as soon as we can!
Not only are our seamstresses sewing masks, but we asked our community who could use some fabric to sew masks as well. We are humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response and support from our community so far! If you are interested in sewing masks and need fabric, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. For those sewing at home, we have found two different patterns that we are using in-house which can be found here
Some of our community-members and customers have asked if there is a way to support the production of masks if they cannot sew them themselves. If you don't have the ability to help so, please consider donating to help us cover shipping costs to send fabric to other seamstresses and to send finished masks to healthcare workers who need them. You can donate here
Thank you so much for your love and support.
