A bit about our initiative during Covid-19:
Mid March, Diana pivoted due to a extreme halt in her business from the global pandemic. She quickly set up a Facebook Group called The Sewing Army and invited her friends to join. Within a month, over 3200 volunteers sewed and delivered over 25,000 pieces of PPE to frontline workers. CAA Ontario joined forces to help deliver finished products safely to organizations. Brother Canada donated refurburished machines for sewists. Many small businesses donated fabrics to the cause.
To date, the PPE donations are over 113,000 to hospitals, shelters, grocery stores, midwifes, transit workers, non profit and charity organizations etc. see what we’re up to at www.thesewingarmy.com
Please remember that these masks are not medical grade or replacements for N95 masks and should not be used as such. Social distancing measures should be implemented even when wearing a mask.
please wash the mask before trying on for the first time and between each use.
