Continued message from our Guild President
They will get them to the agencies. Sharman's sewing Center is currently open Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30-5:00. When you get to the store you can call them on the phone (903-581-5470) and they will come out to your car and pick up your masks. If you need to go into the store to buy any supplies, you must wear a mask. They can allow 5 people in the store at a time. They have some material that they ordered in for the quilt show that they are selling at reduced prices for anyone who wants to make masks. Also, if you have some stash you are willing to donate, they can take it and get it distributed.
You will find an excellent pattern and instructions for making a mask on the Sharman's website. It is a downloadable file that you can print out. The mask is fitted around the nose, has a pocket for inserting a filter, and instructions for making ties if you are out of elastic. This mask meets all of CDC's latest recommendations.
I cannot express how urgent this need is. Since CDC came out and changed their guidelines last week to include having the general public wear face masks, many of our country's seamstresses have stopped making masks for health care and are now sewing for their families. Of course, we need to take care of our families, but when we finish that, please consider making for our first responders and other groups who serve the public. We have almost 200 guild members. If each of us makes 10 masks, that would be 2000 masks! If you have any questions, please contact me at:
