UPDATE posted May 17: The frantic need for contingency masks for our neighborhood frontline workers has slowed. That's a good thing.

Keeping this listing up a little longer, we will still cut and sew our masks to order, when people order. 

Our "buy 1 give 1" promise continues. As long as the uncertain future of this pandemic keeping us guessing, we will seek out recipients in need. Thank you!

We began making contingency PPE as a donation effort for healthcare’s urgent need. 

General public is increasingly looking to BUY masks. 

We offer a "make one, give one." Make a $20 contribution, receive a civilian mask suitable for errands. Your purchase also provides a mask for front line workers. As industry supplies catch up with healthcare needs, we also give mask donations to neighbors in vulnerable environments, and to those having difficulty making ends meet. 

Discount codes do not apply for this fundraiser. 

Choose a style:

3 Ply: Solid Chambray with a lining/filter pocket. Linings are printed cotton, chosen at random when assembling. Best for: Maximum layers of material, plus the option to insert a filter (not included) of the wearer's choosing.

2 Ply: Choose "Floral" or "Azure". These are 2 ply with no filter pocket, for something cooler to wear. Inside lining is still a densely woven 100% cotton, outside is lighter imported designer cottons we use in our current spring collection. Best for: Hotter weather. Lighter layers may encourage reluctant mask wearers to keep theirs on (our relatives living in FL inspired this new option). 

Masks like these simply allow you to comply with any "cover your face" advisory needed to run errands in public. 

We make no claims that these or any masks are effective at preventing the spread of any virus. Stay home, if at all possible! Other than that, wearing a mask may help remind you not to touch your face, and lets others know you care to be careful in their presence. 

Masks have elastic that can be adjusted for fit, by tying the elastic smaller. One size fits most adults. 

Masks sewn for this fund raising effort are staff-sewn by Betsy Cook and employee (this project allows staff to work from home.)  "Supporter" masks are limited to an amount that can be fulfilled, aiming to ship within a week. Addresses in the Haddon Ave. vicinity will likely be hand-delivered. You may offer to pickup, but don't just show up, note they are usually sewn to order. 

You may have noticed the masks directed to healthcare/essential workers are a different style. Those are designed for their specific needs, and are not for sale. 

Masks are not returnable for refund but if damaged or defective, can be exchanged.
