Mask Maker Heroes: When Help Is Needed.

Thanks to everyone who sent photos of the masks they’ve made.

Mask Makers

Today I’ve tried to include all the photos I received, although it’s possible that because some came to different Facebook addresses, I missed adding them. I’ve also sent links to my ebook, The Unmasking, to every mask maker who commented and sent a photo. Some of you non-mask makers wanted to know where to buy a copy for yourself. My website has all the links.

Whether your photo is here or not, please know how much I appreciate your hard work and your willingness to share it for the rest of us to admire. Some people made one mask, others have made more than a hundred and are still going strong. Some made pleated masks, one enterprising mask maker used plastic. Others made a million yards of ties.

For the record I’ve made and distributed 39 to friends and family, which is a drop in the mask maker bucket, but I don’t think I’m done yet.

No matter what you’ve done or can do, your work will be appreciated.

You are the absolute best!

    Emilie, you rock!
    My good friend Karen, who is working from home, sewed masks for her family and one for me. Ran out of elastic which is very hard to find these days. I thought about my mom, 90, who used to sew all kinds of clothes for us kids plus various other items. Sure enough, she had two packs of elastic in her sewing supplies! She was tickled to be able to help.
    Take care and thanks for all you do!
