We have MASK requests from the following organizations:
Immanuel Lutheran Nursing Home and Rehab Center (1000)
Kalispell Fire Department (200)
Montana Veterans Home (1000)
Please note if you have washable NON WOVEN interfacing on hand, please add it to the middle of your fabric mask covers. Also, it's best to make masks out of two colors so the user knows what side to put towards their face. Masks should be tight weave and no flannel. Even pillow cases are good. If elastic is not available, ties can be made 20" long. Grain ribbon, twill tape, bias tape sewn down and ends finished. Shoe laces can be used.
Please up size: cut size to 10" x 7" for these organizations.
Joann Fabrics is offering a free pattern kit. They include interfacing. Call first, they are low on elastic 752-2987
