We are six months into the pandemic. Covid and Coronavirus, social distancing, “masking up” and so many other words and phrases have become part of our vernacular.
In March, just a few days into things shutting down, I posted about sewing a few masks for my neighbor’s pediatric office. Six months in and hundreds of masks later, my mask-making has become a daily activity. After using many yards of donated fabric and my existing sewing supplies, I finally had to purchase more thread and fabric. I’ve sewed and mailed masks to family and friends all over the world, literally. Every few weeks I search for the latest and greatest mask styles, to see how my masks should evolve.
We have learned that masks are the key to getting this virus under control, so I shall continue to sew! And I hope that if you’re reading this, you’re wearing a mask, too. Wishing you continued health and the stamina to keep up with the latest safety recommendations.
