Face Mask with Ties - Pack of 2
When COVID hit, I was asked by a neighbour who knew I had a sewing machine, to sew fabric face masks for the parents of babies at Sunnybrook's NICU...so of course I said yes. My neighbour and her family even started helping out to cut pattern pieces and binding ties, while I sat at our island, sewing away. Well, after a few days of constant sewing, I realized the amount of masks needed for more hospitals, and the community at large was huge. Home-schooling my 7 year old, and keeping a watchful eye on my two teenagers was becoming a big job as well, so I decided to partner with my Toronto factory to produce the face masks. My factory owner was so pleased, because now we could keep her sewers, fabric cutters and pressers employed. It means so much to my factory owner and myself to be able to give back to the community in such a meaningful way. Stay safe everyone. Be kind to one another. And wash your hands. A lot. :)

These fabric face masks will NOT protect you from COVID-19. They are meant to prevent droplet transmission when you cough or sneeze. And when droplets are blocked, exposure is substantially reduced. Essential health care workers should be the only people wearing N95 masks - let's save them for these incredible heroes risking their lives every day.
