Letter from the Director of the SLV Health Foundation, Kelly Gurule
Dear sewers, quilters and all the amazing people in the SLV,
Over the past week, we have had an overwhelming amount of support from you who reached out to help us with our mission to help keep everyone safe. I know with all the COVID-19 information out there, this is an extremely scary time and as most of you are aware, we are in a place where everyone wants to help. This is definitely very evident with your e-mails regarding our need for masks. I know most of you have been waiting patiently on the sideline for instruction so here they are.
We have attached our mask pattern** complete with the proper measurements. (A very special thank you goes out to Micah and Randy Jackson with Rustic Log Furniture and Carolyn Mortensen. They tested and adjusted the pattern to help streamline the process. We also posted our pattern on our web page sanluisvallyhealth.org under the stories “SLV Health asks for help to make surgical masks” and “Mask Pattern.”
*****Mask pattern can be download below****
These masks are designed with a pocket so we can remove and dispose the filters (which we are having made), wash them and use them again. We are asking that you make the outside of the mask with a heavy cotton blend material such as denim and the inside can be made out of cotton. I know most of you have supplies, but we are in the process of getting “kits” put together so if individuals or groups don’t have materials, we will have them available.
If our timeline continues, the kits should be ready to go out on Thursday. Completed masks can be picked up – just give us a call – or dropped off to the SLV Health Foundation Office, located next to Hwy 160 at 1921 Main Street in the SLV Health Education building.
For any questions or more information, or to have us come pick up some masks, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: Kelly Gurule, 719-587-5707 or email@example.com; or Dawn Krebs, 719-587-6359 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you already have supplies, feel free to start sewing and please let anyone else who wants to help know. We can use all hands on deck. I know this a lot but with us all working together we will get through this.
Thank you so much for your support……..
**When printing the pattern, the users have to watch their printer settings. The printers are skewing the pattern. The denim piece should measure about 6” x 11 3/8” when cut.
