Sewing masks is a common activity these days. Health officials require masks for safety. And they can be a fun fashion accessory. Manufacturers make them in a variety of designs and styles. And many people make their own masks for personal use or to donate to others in need.
Bothell mom, Amy Best, has partnered with Joann Fabric to meet the need for masks at hospitals, for friends, loved ones and the elderly.
“I wanted to help out in some way,” Amy says. “I feel like it’s good for my kids to see that we can all contribute in times of crisis-every little thing adds up. We are still connected in isolation, caring for each other.”
Amy continues sewing masks for hospitals and has expanded to provide for pharmacy staff and members of her community. For more ideas on how you can help your community during the Covid crisis, visit Seattle’s Child.
