4-H Families Sew Masks for their Community

Apr 16, 2020

4-H families have been working hard sewing cotton masks for nurses, essential workers, and friends and family!

Now that home sewn fabric masks are required in Sonoma County, and N95 masks are reserved for first responders, we are busy sewing up a storm. It has been a challenge with fabric stores closed for regular shopping so it is a good thing that sewists (sewing artists) tend to have extra supplies on hand!

The count thus far is 277 masks sewn by 7 families and that is just the start! They were donated to hospitals, nurses, mental health workers, medical offices, Senior Center, to essential workers that must stay on the job and some to friends and other families in need.

Way to go 4-Hers, learning and helping is a beautiful thing!
