Bags and masks have started to come in. I've put a counter on the new Bags page so you can see how far we need to go: 17 down, 283 to go! You will find the updated instructions for the bag sewing on that page as well. Remember - we need the 24" x 24" ones first.
Please excuse the frequent updates on the patterns. We are inventing this project as we go. Thanks to Cindy and Sabra for their help troubleshooting the Citizen Mask designs. Thanks to Steve and Sherri for bringing us the FIRST batch of bags today.
At French Broad Sewing and Upholstery, they are fine tuning the nose pieces for the Frontline Masks. Lucas Waller designed a special jig to wrap several dozen at once. James Burns and Elizabeth Eve from Ortho Dog Shop have also stepped up big time in aiding the commercial production, with their die cut machine and speedy sewing team.
So many generous and creative people are making this happen as fast as we possibly can.
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.
