Since the pandemic started, we have seen so many artists stepping up to the task of sewing face masks as a form of protection.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our curbside pickup of cotton fabric on March 24 in order to sew face masks for health care settings in need! This fabric came from our stash of donated fabric to the Garage Sale (currently postponed, with a date TBD!). Unfortunately, we have no elastic leftover.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone should, “wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.” In the City of Minneapolis as of Tuesday, May 26 — masks are required in indoor public spaces.
Below you will find some resources we have pulled together for you to shop fabric masks, or make your own!
