The tool comes in a bunch of colors ...

How to Start A Mask Making Group in Your Community from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Today’s video is a little different. I brought in three women, one of whom doesn’t even sew, who have organized a group of volunteers to make 11,000 masks a week to go to healthcare workers in my community.

They recognized early on the massive need to make masks to protect our healthcare workers during the PPE shortage, put a call out on Facebook and now have more than 500 volunteers working together, but in their own living rooms, to make a massive difference in the community I live.

I got them together via Zoom chat to share ...

Mask making from The Quilt Rat


Okay, so, there is a LOT of info out there for and against wearing a mask during this Covid-19 crisis...especially one that is "home sewn" and while I had planned to stay out of it, I changed my mind and decided to dedicate this post to making one for yourself.

There are a great many tutorials out there, probably the only real difference is that I have included an extra  layer of protection in the form of a Hepa filter in the ones I have made.

* Warning, you want to be certain that such filter material does not contain ...

How to Make a Mask WITHOUT Elastic from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Thanks to the outpouring of support from the sewing community in the effort to make masks, elastic is now hard to come by. The four main distributors to quilt shops in the U.S. are all out and it is going to be a bit before they can get more.
