A sincere tribute to all Face mask makers.
Once again I could not be prouder of my Quilting community. So many of you have stepped right up and begun making masks. It has been challenging due to no nation wide preferred design or who will and won't use our masks. I have been trying to coordinate and give information as best as I can from this end. Some hospitals who initially said no, they did not want our masks are now running out of supplies and now collecting them. This morning. news is that the National stockpile is almost out.
The best we can do is to reach out to our communities and ask weekly if they want our masks and if they have a preferred design or materials to use.
Last week I got several requests for Apliquick interfacing as the stocks of Pellon 950 seem to be gone. Not everyone is lining their masks with interfacing, but if you are- We contact Apliquick in Spain the day before they went into National lock down. ( the second hardest hit country in Europe). They have made a generous donation of 6 rolls of interfacing to help all of us who are using this as an additional liner. Disclaimer.
This interfacing is not medical grade nor designed for making masks.
We will cut and package it for free, and only charge our shipping costs. Please share this with anyone
who is using interfacing in their mask making efforts.
Wishing all the best for you and your communities.
