COVID Mask Making Ministry

Please email Jackie at office@northmadisoncc.org, if you are planning to sew.  Thank you for sharing your love with for our first responders and vulnerable population by making masks!

If you/your organization need masks, please reach out to Robin Chasse: rsncob@allpointstech.com

Completed masks should be left in the bin by the Circle Nursery entrance, in Ziploc gallon bags. If child-sized, please bag separately and label Ziploc bag accordingly.  Please email Jackie in the church office to let her know how many completed masks you have left in the bin, office@northmadisoncc.org, so that we can get them delivered timely.

To become a mask-maker, you will need fabric and supplies. Check with local fabric centers for current sales on supplies.

There are many mask patterns available online, but here is one pattern tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYMkW469NNc

Please note that face masks with pocket for filter are preferable but not required. A variety of items may be used as a “filter”, for further protection (e.g. cotton shirts, coffee filters).  If you have questions as you begin to sew, you may reach Kate Summerlin at summerlin.kate@gmail.com.

Ideas for sourcing elastic & elastic substitutions include:

  • Elastic from seam of a fitted sheet. If elastic is wider than ¼”, cut down with pinking shears to avoid unraveling; it will unravel with a straight shear
  • Thin elastic removed from paper party hats
  • Thin sport, flat, headbands; cut in 6” lengths
  • ¼” ribbon, seam binding or fabric ties (adjustable for head size)
  • Make T-Shirt “yarn” for ties – https://www.infarrantlycreative.net/how-to-make-t-shirt-yarn/?crlt.pid=camp.No06n1b3bqta
  • Take apart bungy cords and they are filled with many elastic bands
