Are you making masks?

This morning I sent off emails to the winner of my Birthday giveaway. Unfortunately there were several comments that were no reply and no email address was attached. So I had to leave them off when I did the random selection.

However I have another request. I understand fabric for masks that most everyone is making should be of a tight weave. It does not prevent you from getting the virus, but will help the spread. I have quite a lot of batik fabrics that I'm happy to share, if anyone is interested in using them to make masks.

The weave in batiks is quite tight and I have a nice selection of colors. These are complements of Island Batiks from when I was an Ambassador. 

Just leave a comment, and please be sure you let me know your contact information.

***** PLEASE leave me contact information. I already have had a couple of comments that are no reply and no way to contact you! Thank YOU! *****

I made about 24 masks this past weekend and am just about out of 1/4 inch elastic. If I need to make more, will use the 1/2 inch. thanks for the chance to win.

These would be great for some of the men who want masks. I've made some for our local clinic, several who work in various medical fields including a nursing home, my son's work crew, and my daughter who works at 911 in Shreveport, LA.
So many are asking for masks I can't keep up. I can only manage to sew about 4-5 hours a day, but gosh, I'm trying! I haven't charged anyone, but my son gave me money for elastic, and others have given food products. LOL
The numbers rising in our state is so scary. We're both 70, and my husband is high risk with his heart condition so we're really being careful. My son and grandson have been so helpful to bring us things, but I worry about them too. I ordered some things online.
How are things in your state?

I was just thinking of making some masks and would love some batiks to use! Thank you!

Hello Jocelyn... I have begun making masks for local people. I do not have much fabric deemed quilt grade and my quilt grade is mostly children's characters. Makes me nervous to use the cheaper variety fabric or unknown lines. It would be great to get some batik fabric. It would be great to help our area in Illinois. Please let me know if you still have some available and cost.

Thanks so much for the offer!

I've been making masks for my family and neighbors.

This fabric would be wonderful to finish the ones I still need to make.

Thank you for providing these to us..

Hi, I have been making masks for over two weeks for the senior care home where my daughter-in-law a social worker works.
High-quality quilter cotton. I have been making the style with ties and
space for filter. Many of us in the quilting community of Vermont are making these for those on the front lines.

Oh this is so generous of you. thank you. our church has a quilting/sewing group ( I am a part of it ) we are making masks for the retirement homes in the area. batiks are fabrics that a lot of the women would love to wear.
