Questions about and requests for Face Masks are rolling into the Stitchin' Post and we wanted to give you an update on what we know and how you can help.
Each organization accepting masks has its own needs and requirements. Before you start sewing find an organization in need, get their requirements, then choose your pattern to fit. Check our blog post from more mask making tips and tricks.
Completed masks can be donated at many local hospitals. If your hospital isn't accepting masks at this time, they can still be a good source of information. More organizations who may be accepting donations are hospice care, senior centers, first responders, and shelters. Other options for finding an organization in need are to contact your local quilting guild or quilt shop, join a mask making group on Facebook, ask a healthcare professional you know, or check your local news and community websites.
This website is a great resource for finding organizations all over the country.
In general pleated masks with fabric or ribbon ties are preferred.
If you are an organization in need of masks or a group collecting them, and want to be listed on our page please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you as soon as we are able.
We can do this together!
