I owe you a post! Sorry for the silence of late. I hope everyone is staying healthy physically and mentally. I miss you all! I've received a few updates and photos that I can share with you today:
First, an update on masks from Twyla:
Hi all -
The mask project for Clinica is in full swing. Thought I'd share a pic of the ones they'll be picking up today.
We could use some more seamstresses if anyone is interested. I've got kits of ten available to pick up or I can drop off to you.
We are particularly in need of more satin or grograin ribbon if anyone has any they'd like to donate. I'd be happy to do a porch pickup anywhere in Boulder County!
Also, today I attended a Zoom meeting with Masks for Humanity. They are a grassroots network of makers who are sewing masks in their local communities. There were over 200 makers on the call. A documentary about everyone's efforts is being made from video taken during the call.
It was so inspiring to be a part of that! I've listed our group Masks for Clinica on their website so they can amplify our efforts locally. Many groups are sending excess materials to other groups. This solidarity in our great nation in it's time of need feels wonderful to be a part of.
Many thanks to Linda Leach, Joyce Miller, Mary Farnan, Lynda Pinkerton, and suppliers, family and members of the community who have generously stepped up with donations of material, pipe cleaners, thread and ribbon!
And some photos of completed projects came in:
A sweet Barley hat from Diana (get the free pattern here):
