04.11.20 Journal

Something really unexpected and super cool happened this past week.

On Monday, as part of my Live at 11 series on my Facebook page, I taught a face mask making tutorial using recycled materials that you might just have kicking around your house. My desire is to teach self-reliance during this super confusing time.  A way of making what we need using materials that we have.  

While I was teaching, it became apparent that there are those among us who are simply just not crafty and would rather support a me with a purchase than make their own mask.  In response, I offered to make a few masks for sale in my shop.

Shortly after my teaching session ended a text popped up from a friend who runs two dispensaries in VT – she placed an order for 75 masks for her staff so they could stay open.  There are apparently no masks to be found and my recycling really resonated with the dispensary.  By the end of the day today I have shipped over 200 masks and the orders continue rolling in. Both of my daughters have been roped in to help.  We got caught up today with a mad dash to the post office just in time to ship out the last bunch of our orders.  By the timeI got home from that errand there were another 2 dozen on order.

At first I was feeling torn between making masks to ship as soon as possible and working on a super cool new project I am announcing on Monday morning - Live at 11am EST on my Facebook page.  As mask orders flooded my inbox I realized that we are providing a level of safety that is desperately needed.  My frustration turned to honor.  

In addition to not touching our faces, washing hands and keeping physical distance, we all need to be wearing masks when in public.  Not only will we kick this damn virus’ ass sooner we will look AWESOME! You can check out my tutorial to learn how to make your own, or, if you are allergic to sewing machines, check my shop.  So far, all the 100% cotton men’s dress shirts we have recycled came from my studio stash.  Soon I will start combing my family’s closets!

Don't forget that masks make wonderfully useful gifts for those on the frontlines of our culture. I am thinking about grocery store workers, pharmacists, delivery people, sanitation workers, gas station attendants, and others who are saving the world right now.
