Is there anyone who is having trouble getting a mask close to Park Ridge? An incredible group of locals from The Mask Fairy have sewn many many cloth masks for frontline workers! We know with the mandate some people might have trouble getting one in time. We’ve made some for our community! If you need a free mask promptly, please reach out to me. Easy Trader Joe’s pick up. These are standard 9x6”, rectangle, pleated, 2 layer, 100 % cotton masks with elastic ear bands. These are the same masks which we made by the thousands for area medical facilities! 😁 Let’s all stay safe & wear our masks. No excuses! Also, I’m looking for a couple of medical professionals to demo patterns and give feedback for multiple PPE related items.

What a wonderful offer. I’ve made friends with my sewing machine and I’m attempting some new patterns. Do you have a favorite pattern?

Was going to ask for your pattern as well. I started making a few masks the other day, but I am using 8 x 14“ rectangles. Three pleats. I would be interested in seeing your pattern if you don’t mind. I will not be selling them, just making them.

Hi , thank you so much! How do I go about getting one for my husband and myself? Do I just go to Trader Joe’s?

My coworkers could use more headbands if anyone is willing. At Evanston hospital. We aren’t allowed cloth masks but those headbands are very helpful, or someone made me this crochet band that holds my mask in place. I would make em for my unit or whatever but this is a talent I don’t have.
