Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER!
Covid-19 has disrupted our daily lives. As we all work together to slow the spread of this illness, our health care workers have a need to augment their mask supplies. In true Rosie the Riveter style, sewers across the country are coming together to meet the need. We are dipping into our fabric stashes and booting up our sewing machines to make fabric face masks. Homemade masks are no substitute for the N95 masks, but they offer at least some protection. They also free up the surgical masks for the people who are the highest risk. These masks can be distributed to health workers, clinics and nursing homes to provide another layer of protection.
If you’d like to join us, here is a tutorial to get you started.
