Masks Travel Far

Stockbridge; Michigan; United States

I started making masks the first of April. Some first ones went to distribution to local hospitals. Subsequent ones I mailed to family members in Georgia, Illinois, Florida and Germany. Current ones I'm making up and putting in individual plastic bags in a box (labeled FREE MASKS) and putting outside my shop in downtown Stockbridge for anyone to take. I'm also long arm quilting for the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild's charity, Safehouse Center (shelters for domestic violence victims). Quilting the member's quilts for free. All this as a way I can give back to the community, the world, in a way that uses my skills.
