Mask Mania!

As I’m sure you all know, our hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities are in great need during this time.

The Guild is challenging everyone to make 10 masks this week! Patterns and tutorials are below.

If everyone participates, that would mean 2,000 masks to donate locally just this week!

The need is real, we can make a HUGE impact!

FREE interfacing for the center if you need

We have plenty, and The Presser Foot is kindly donating 1, 2, or 3 yards to guild members and will do curb side drop off

Sheila B. will also have packets available

All you need to donate is your time and your sewing skills!

Feel free to forward this note to anyone you know who is willing to make some masks!
