We will be in the shop limited hours (usually 3-4 days per week) answering phones, cutting fabrics, meeting people for curbside pick up and packing and shipping orders. You can either email an order or call in an order and we will call with a total to be prepaid by credit card by phone and then we will arrange either curbside pickup, delivery (locally) or to have it shipped. We are working on our online store on our website. Keep checking in to see the exciting changes. We LOVE our customers and we really appreciate any and all business during this unprecedented time. We can’t wait until we reopen and see everyone’s smiling faces again!
We keep hearing from you that you want to know how you can help and we have been working with local groups. One is Eastview, they have a secure drop off site and they will distribute masks by mail to anyone that is requesting one. Another is Round Robin, that is in coordination with Porter Hospital. I have spoken in person with the Chief Medical Officer at Porter and she is recommending 100% Quilter’s NEW quilter’s cotton in solid (or almost) solid colors, we do have plenty of solid colors in stock and we are expecting more elastic by the end of next week. https://www.portermedical.org/hand-sewn-mask-donations/
Porter has also asked for our help in sewing Isolation Gowns. They have purchased the materials and have the pattern. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping, and please let us know how many you would like to make. We will contact to arrange getting you the materials and the pattern. It is a very basic pattern and only beginning sewing skills are needed.
