Who would have ever thought that we quilters would be so excited to be sewing face masks! What a blessing to be able to use our sewing skills to help the heroes in our community! During this time of isolation – we have a project – and a goal – and are part of the solution! Praise the Lord!
I’d like to send a huge
to everyone who has made masks, and to all who are continuing in this effort!
When we began this project we didn’t know where it would take us. Over 2020 masks later we’re still going strong, and we’re very grateful our small group of women could get the word out and fill such a huge need. Not only are we supplying hospitals and medical clinics, but we’ve had requests from police departments, hospice facilities, school cafeteria workers who are making meals for under privileged children, and more. We’re filling these requests as we are able and are also accepting requests. If you know of a place that has a need please have them contact Gina Magnus at (262)424-7640.
We started by asking for plain, professional looking masks and that’s what we received,
but it didn’t take long for many stitchers to run out of the “boring” fabrics (or just tire of them) and dig into the “pretty” ones!
Some were even made to look more masculine.
And some were just plain fun!
I will be working at the polls on Tuesday and I offered to bring masks for all the workers. My offer was accepted and I’m happy to be making patriotic masks – God bless America!
I’m sure your local polling place would appreciate masks if you can make some that quickly ?. And maybe you have friends or neighbors who would appreciate this gift of safety. Please be inspired to fill these needs also!
May God bless all of the medical, housekeeping, law enforcement and others who are on the front lines during this very difficult and dangerous time. They need and deserve our prayers and thanks.
The need continues, so please keep up the GREAT work!

Thank you again for all of your help and prayers. It is appreciated more than you know!
Comfort is Times of Trouble
On a separate and very important note – I’ve noticed many people are quite anxious about these scary and uncertain times. I was recently listening to a sermon that I found informative and comforting. Click here to listen to it. May God bless you and your family, and keep you healthy and safe!
