Volunteers Needed to Sew Face Masks
Details: Hospitals are in dire need of Face Masks to help protect our healthcare workers from the Coronavirus. Our Crafting Ministry and Women on Mission have organized all of the information for you to help. The masks you make can be dropped off at MMBC (details below) and will be delivered to Promedica Hospital & St Joseph Hospital.
Two patterns (see links below) are from the hospital’s website.
Pattern #1 – This mask is a cover for the N95 mask that the healthcare workers use. It prolongs the use of each N95 mask which is in very short supply. These will be delivered to Promedica Hospital. These masks should be made of 100% cotton fabric.
N-95 Mask Cover Instructions & Photos:
Pattern #2 – This is a standalone mask that is used by healthcare workers. It provides a measure of protection for the workers. These masks should be made of 100% cotton fabric (outside) and cotton flannel fabric (inside). If flannel is not available, they will gladly accept all cotton (both sides). These will be delivered to St. Joseph Hospital.
Standard Pleated Face Mask Cover:
NOTE: There are copies of the patterns located at MMBC (in the 2nd tub) in case you need them.
