Face Mask Project
The response to this project has been wonderful! It is no surprise that people want to help, so here are answers to your frequently asked questions. If you have other questions that aren't answered here, please reply to this email!
Are kits still available?
We are busy putting together more kits to meet the demand. Keep checking that green bin at Entrance A at the church. Please sign the list on the clipboard so we know who is helping with the project.

How many kits can I have?
To allow everyone to participate in this project, please just take one kit. Once you have directions and have made the 24 face masks in one kit, you'll be able to make more with your own supplies.

I don't have a sewing machine. How can I help?
We have fabric you could cut, and then we can provide ready-cut fabric to those who want to sew. Reply to this email if this calls to you!

What supplies do you need?
We have fabric but are in short supply of:
  • Flat elastic (1/4", 3/8", or even 1/8" or 1/2") and/or cord elastic
  • New shoe laces, 36" or longer
  • Double fold bias tape seam binding
  • Grosgrain ribbon (3/8" or 1/2")
If you have some to share, please let us know!

How can I donate to the project?
Donate online or mail a check to Mary Wells, UMW Treasurer.
How do you make the masks?
We studied lots of patterns and videos and developed simple instructions for you. Keep a few for your family and bring the rest to the church for your church family and local healthcare workers. Share these simple directions with your friends!
What kind of fabric is needed?
Tightly woven cotton or cotton blend fabric like calico. Prints are fun. Lightweight fabrics like gingham are not advised. You can use the same fabric on both sides, but using a flannel or strong sheeting is more comfortable next to the face.
Face Mask pick up at LLUMC Entrance A
Where should I take the masks I have made?
Please take them to Entrance A at the church (near Asbury Hall & the Welcome Desk) and put them in the green bin. Please put them in a ziploc bag to protect them from the rainy weather! We'll be checking the bin for them.

Who put this project together?
Thank you Lynn Fisher, Becky Barnebey, Karen Shuey and Wendy Campbell! As the situation and requirements changed they persevered and found ways to make it work. They had vision, researched what was needed, developed directions, shopped, and cut fabric.

It is our prayer that you and your family stay healthy. Please let us know if you would like to connect or there is something you need.
