Face Masks Desperately needed

We have started a FB group to support and encourage Seamstresses to make face masks for Healthcare workers…we have a team of professionals who have approved a pattern that we have available for download. Please join the group and Spread the word!! Seamstresses Unite https://www.facebook.com/groups/943886366014014/ If you are in the Seattle Area:We have an approved pattern/Instruction sheet!!  There is a video link on the last page, but we have modified the design a bit…but for those who need a video, this one is very helpful… We are working hard to identify medical personnel/organizations that have a great need for these masks…so far we are seeing an overwhelming need…Please refer any need request to me and we will do our best to fill the need… We want to group volunteers by zip code so we can organize delivery and match with medical providers by location. If you are not in the Seattle Area, we can still help, please let me know where you are located, I am being contacted by healthcare professionals around the country is desperate need…I might be able to match you up with them.

    1. I want to help! I’m a retired health care provider and want to help my colleagues. What fabric is recommended for use? Where is the pattern? Help

  1. Thank You Bernina Community!

    So many of you helped with this effort…together with Seamstresses Unite! and with other groups…We have made a huge impact on the fight against COVID 19.

    Seamstresses Unite! has made and delivered over 22,500 Face Masks! Our goal was to fill the gap until masks were available for purchase. Although we have ratcheted back our efforts now that masks are readily available, we continue to make masks for those who can not afford to buy masks.

    Thank you Bernina for helping us reach beyond our goals!!!

  2. Wow, what a wild ride..Over 31,500 masks make and distributed by our group!!

    With facemasks finally being available for purchase and no longer in critically short supply, we have wrapped up this project. So many of us are still making masks for family and friends but the rush is over. We have decided to take a bit of a break and relaunch in January 2021. Quarterly, We will choose a sew for charity project…provide a pattern, encouragement and Guidance for finding recipients in locals where you live. Example, Project Linus is a nationwide organization that provide homemade blankets for Children in need. There are local chapters so that Seamstresses can support their local communities.
