The Seattle Limbe Sewing Circle – Making Masks
We are a multi-cultural, multi-faith community and we have built a cross-cultural community here in Seattle. During the Covid-19 crisis we have started sewing masks for local organizations from our homes. Beth Hartell organized our mask making project.
What masks to sew: The organizations are all flexible as to what the masks look like, as long as they are cotton and washable.
Here are several patterns, as well as a recent news article that has additional information:
If you are someone who is in a position to drive around and pick up masks, please let Beth Hartell know.
Thank you to CBS Member, Beth Hartell, for jumping in to organize the Sewing Sisters into making masks for the Seattle area during COVID-19, and to Joy Gonzalez, from a different Sewing Sister congregation, who will be taking the job on for the Summer
To date, the Sewing Sisters have sewn and donated well over 1,800 masks. We know that many on this list are providing masks to many other organizations, as well as masks for friends and family, so the true number of masks sewn over these last three months is much higher. Incredible! We also have a group of sewists who have transformed 175 hospital gowns into full coverage protective layers for the staff at Kline Galland Senior Care. (If that’s a project that interests you, Kline Galland does need more of these gowns made.)
If you have masks that are ready for pick-up/donation – please Joy Gonzalez know.
