Do you sew? We are looking for donations of sewn fabric surgical masks to help protect our healthcare personnel as they care for COVID-19 patients. The supply of manufactured surgical masks are at critically low level throughout the nation and we need your help! Fabric masks offer the benefit of being able to be washed and re-used. Still a large supply is needed, as each healthcare worker changes their mask several times during a shift, as the mask becomes soiled or damp. Being stylish is great - -- but we are more concerned about functionality. Non-matching fabrics, and threads are just fine – but a well sewn mask with no frayed edges or missed seams or “holes” is a necessity. We’ve provided a standard pattern, instructions, and some additional guidelines below. Thanks so much for your help and please share this information with your sewing friends๐Ÿ˜Š
