Julie, who leads the Doll Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, sent me a note recently. I posted the above picture of her cat to get your attention because what she said is helpful during these difficult times. This is what she wrote:
Hi Carol, I wrote to Chris a bit ago about some ideas for her Facebook page and she suggested they would be good for the blog too....
I’m sure you have heard that Spectrum Health is accepting donations of homemade PPE masks. I had emailed this info to Chris as I think people would want to buy fabrics (especially batiks) for face masks and isolation gowns. They shouldn’t use the cheap stuff from the cheap stores, because it’s not woven tightly enough. I asked her if I could buy some batik over the phone and then swing by to pick it up. She said yes.
So I thought others might want to do the same....and you might want to know this info to post about it. Below are some helpful links.
Spectrum’s donation guidelines. Link to mask video tutorial is there.

FYI, Jalie.com is also giving away March 28 and 29 only 2 days) a scrub PDF pattern:
