Sew masks for hospitals

One critical need that has emerged over the past several days is the need for more personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and gowns, in hospitals and other health care settings.

Volunteer sewers need to use a CDC-compliant pattern, approved by Allina, to create the masks. Tightly woven 100 percent cotton fabric should be used for the front of the mask while soft, high quality, tightly woven 100 percent cotton flannel should be used for the backing.

Once you get the hang of it, it’s estimated to take about 15 minutes to make one mask.
