From Mittens to Masks

I have had my own small business making mittens from repurposed wool sweaters for almost 15 years. Because the art and craft fair season has a bleak outlook at this time, I know as an experienced seamstress I could put my skills to good use making masks instead of mittens.

Over the past few weeks I have seen over 700 masks. Most of these have been donated to frontline medical workers and first responders. My own stash of needed supplies has been used as well as donations of fabric and elastic from others.

Some people have kindly left monetary donations when they come to pick up the masks from my porch. This is greatly appreciated and helpful in buying more fabric and hard to find elastic to keep the mask production going. My family has been blessed with staying healthy, so I hope I can continue to help others.
