Spring is in the air
I hope all of our efforts to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus are successful. I live in Northern California and we have been under shelter-in-place orders since mid-March, and the stay-at-home order has been extended until May 3rd. Since I have more free time than normal, I started sewing projects that I’d put aside for a while. I finished making a jacket, a dress, and a few small projects. Then I moved my direction to make face masks for family and friends. Now I am making masks for those people who still have to go to work while we stay at home. My friend Julie Weisenberger, the owner of Cocoknits, donated boxes of muslin fabric so I can keep making masks. And a few friends are willing to take some fabrics and sew more masks. If you live near me and want to participate in this, please let me know. I am happy to share materials with you so we can help together.
I am optimistic about the Korea Textile Tour in October; however, I am going to wait until summer to make a decision. Please be patient and positive!
Keep calm and sew on!
