Calling All Sewists & Seamstresses: Face Masks Needed

Mask Facebook Post

I said I would let you know when I know.

Well, I know now.

I have been contacted by many friends and family to begin making masks.

Here is my request to you:  IF YOU SEW:

  • PLEASE go to the website/Facebook page of your local hospital and see if they have requests.  They will tell you if they are excepting homemade masks and specifics of pattern they want used
  • If you have a family member or friend that is a healthcare worker: ask them if they are in need and what pattern they are being told to use
  • If you have a family member or friend that is immunocompromised, ask them if they are in need

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

THERE ARE MANY HOSPITALS/CLINICS/SYSTEMS that are not excepting these masks at this time.

BELOW I WILL UPDATE AS I FIND DIRECTIONS FROM LOCAL (TO ME) HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS NEEDS:

Here in Wisconsin, we are just now getting the GO AHEAD from some HealthCare systems to start making masks and donating them.

THEDACARE has requested masks made from this Pattern: VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE

PER MARSHFIELD HEALTHCARE’s Facebook Page
