Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Calling all tailors, seamstresses, seamsters, sewists, needle masters, anyone who sews – now is your moment! We are coordinating efforts to sew COVID-19 protection masks for organizations in need. We have requests for hundreds already.

Join us for a virtual sewing circle. Log on next to your sewing machine and sew with us. We will help each other and encourage each other.

Terms and Conditions

The masks made by following these instructions do not guarantee protection against transmission of any diseases, but there is significant data to support the use of physical barriers to reduce transmission of airborne droplets, which can infect you with respiratory viruses. Commercially available masks meet regulatory guidelines, but homemade masks do not. Homemade masks are to be used at your own risk. Due to variability of materials and construction, the mask’s safety or effectiveness for personal protection is not proven and cannot be assumed. Please still practice social distancing to the best degree that you can. These are not equivalent to standard surgical masks.
