Now that you’re a mask-sewing expert, you probably have people asking you questions about how to wear them. We just wrote a Care & Use insert to go into our outgoing mask packages. The info is posted on the website as well. Experts stress a good fit and correct use of a mask in helping to contain the spread of the virus.
Every day brings an onslaught of frantic changes and fine-tuning of glitches at Masks of Love. Today, we’re focused on creating a regular online store for ordering masks. We’re ready to go live with that as soon as we get our payment link working. We hope to have it going by the end of the day at this link
We are looking for an industrial walking foot sewing machine and/or an industrial serger to purchase. If you can help, send us an email.
We’ve finally added a page that lists the Masks of Love WNC team members: click here. It also has a handful of the businesses and organizations that have helped in this project. Because of the chaotic nature of this emergency effort, the business section isn’t fully up-to-date, but we hope to complete it soon.
Thank you Toby Maurer and The Branding House Asheville for making this awesome Mindy the Maskmaker T-shirts and other goodies available for purchase HERE. Proceeds from the sales of these items will go directly to help fund our mask-making venture.
Masks of Love WNC
was created in Western North Carolina in March 2020 as a response to our community shortage of PPE in the face of Covid 19. We created an all volunteer effort to get cloth masks into the hands of those that needed them most. Now, Masks of Love has grown into a business that is providing local jobs while staying committed to our mission of donating masks to our under-served neighbors. We have donated almost 10, 000 masks since we began. Learn more about our community partners here.
