On Monday, April 06th, we delivered 1 dozen hand-made face masks with pockets for filters to the Sewing For Life community group in Winchester, Ontario. Kathy Millar had enough remnant cotton material and elastic to build the 12 face masks.
The co-ordinators, including Cheryl Guy, are gathering cotton, elastic and thread for volunteer sewing machine operators in order to create these masks for health care workers. They will be used in cancer wards, long term care facilities and other institutions in order to save more N95 masks for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
If you have 50% or 100% pre-shrunk cotton fabric that you do not need, and/or thin elastic, please consider donating either to South Nation Archery Supply or to the Sewing For Life group. You can reach Cheryl Guy at 613-774-3399. You can drop off any supplies to SNAC during normal business hours.
Cloth remnants should be at least 18″ long. Elastic should be 1/8″ wide.
