We've already had several inquiries for more information on making face masks and the local need. I've checked with a couple of local hospice centers:
Emerald Coast Hospice is asking for help in making 50 adult sized and 45 child sized masks. They have a preferred pattern with more specific measurements. In addition, they would prefer cotton flannel for lining (against the face) and quilting-weight cotton for outside fabric. Both should be pre-washed and dried in dryer for maximum shrinkage before sewing. If you would like to make masks for Emerald Coast Hospice and need supplies, please call Nikki Folley, Executive Director at 850-862-1069.
One of our customers, Beth LaMotte, has kindly volunteered to be point of contact for distribution of additional masks, once Emerald Coast Hospice has been taken care of. You can contact Beth at 850-687-0001
