Helping Hand Needed
Health care workers are needing mask. They have sent me instructions on how the mask needs to be made and the fabric they recommend. Lets give them a hand and make mask for health care workers. Once your masks are complete drop them off at the shop, I will have a basket out front ( be sure they are in a baggie).
These are the recommendations from the medical communittee:
• Fabric should be clean and in good condition in order to be protective.
• Fabric MUST be laundered in HOT water prior to sewing to prevent future
• Recommended fabric for the outer portion of the mask includes heavier,
non-stretch fabric such as denim, duck cloth, canvas, twill, or other tight
• Polyester or other less breathable fabric will not work as well, due to
moisture produced when breathing.
• Elastic should be in good shape, with plenty of stretch and of an
appropriate size to fit over the ears; 1/16” round cord or 1/8” braided
• If elastic is not available, fabric ties can be sewn on the mask. There
will need to be 4 ties (one for each of the 4 corners). Ties should be
approximately ¼” in width, sewn in such a way that there are no frayed
edges, and long enough to be tied into a bow on the top of the head (for
the top corner) and behind the head (for the bottom corner).
Once your masks are complete, place them in a plastic bag and bring to:
Collection bins are locatedin front of the store.
