My Mask Protects You; Your Mask Protects Me

Treadle will be open 12 - 4 today, Thursday April 2, for mask kit pickup and curbside pickup of phone orders.

Thank you to all of you who are generously donating your time and sewing talents to make masks for health care workers. We have given out close to 300 free mask kits, totaling over 4000 masks. As many of you have been sewing masks from fabric in your “resource center” and recently purchased fabric, I can guess that the total number of masks is easily double or triple that.

Many of you have also generously donated fabric, elastic, and funds. Treadle will continue to provide free mask kits as long as there is a need.

Be like Stitches the Bear - wear your mask!

It is time for all of us to step up in one more important way: wear a mask you have sewn every time you are out in public. Countries that have slowed and stopped the spread have that one important cultural norm in common. You can read how and why here:
