• Sewing Masks for Maine

7,252 Masks Delivered in 30 Days

Drumroll please...today is our 30th day as a group, and we have delivered 7,252 masks to healthcare and community organizations in Maine. We're rendered speechless. This started as an idea for a "small" group to give clear directions on a simple pattern to make masks quickly. We are 100% overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity and incredibly hard work we've seen in this group. It's stunning, and we couldn't be more proud to be working on this impactful effort with you all. You give us hope for the future. You are making such a big difference in our community. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the blood, sweat, tears, backaches and amazing hard work you've given to this effort in the last month. We're all so proud to be a part of this. ❤️

We have created this website to pool resources and give guidance to people in Maine to sew masks for use in healthcare settings. To be clear, these masks do not protect from COVID-19, and are not considered valid PPE. We are responding to direct requests from healthcare facilities in Maine following the amended "last resort" guidance from the federal CDC.
