MASKS FOR SCHOOLS
Masks are needed for schools in Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, Putney & Vernon
- Cloth masks will be needed for students, teachers, school staff and bus drivers for the reopening of school in late August.
- Hundreds of masks are needed in all sizes, from kindergarten through adult.
Can you sew masks for this need?
Can you donate tightly woven 100% cotton quilting fabric or ⅛-¼ in. woven elastic?
Can you make a monetary donation to help purchase needed materials?
The Sewing Masks Project in So VT/SW NH Area would like to invite you to join us! We’ve made over 11,000 masks so far, and counting! We can offer you resources such as kits*, fabric and elastic, help you answer any questions you may have about sewing masks, and offer moral support and camaraderie along the way. *(Kits for kids’ masks may be available at some of the supply depots. Check here to find out: https://tinyurl.com/y7f5x46o)
Sign up to sew for a school on our signup sheet here: https://signup.com/go/cLBaftz so that we can keep track of how many masks have been donated to each school so far, and which sizes of mask are still needed.

(Child sized masks should have elastic loops, no ties (choking hazard). All masks should be made of 2 layers of tightly woven 100% cotton quilting fabric.)
