Please understand that these handmade face masks are not a replacement for medical grade Personal Protective Equipment, and in circumstances where medical grade Personal Protective Equipment is recommended, you should consult a health care professional. The decision to use this mask is solely your own.
Please remember that use of face masks is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the community spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face. Follow the latest advice of the CDC and your own health care professionals as to how best to keep yourself safe.
washing recommendation: hand wash/hang to dry is best or machine wash in laundry bag. Please remove crystals before washing as they can break. To add them back on the elastic, simply loop a string of floss or strong thread through the ear loop, then thread the string through the first bead hole and gently pull through. Repeat for other bead hole to secure it in place.
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.
