BI Mask Makers - SignUp Genius Link for Donating Supplies

posted 9 days ago by ElizabethOzimek from Bainbridge Prepares Labels: donations supplies drop-off masks

We are sewing face masks in partnership with Bainbridge Prepares during the COVID-19 situation. Click here to help purchase mask supplies.

Our masks are made of thick terry cloth and have a wire nose piece and adjustable ties for looping around the ears or tying behind the head for fit and comfort. Our masks are NOT equivalent to N95 masks, but while N95 masks are scarce, our terry cloth masks can contain the coughs and sneezes of patients while they are receiving health care.

Please ship or deliver all donated materials to Bainbridge Island City Hall, they will then be packaged into kits and given to volunteers to sew the masks:

Bainbridge Island City Hall Attn: Bainbridge Prepares 280 Madison Ave N, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110

Each set of 4 towels can produce approximately 84 masks.

Thank you!!!

Here is the [SignUp Genius ] ( to help purchase mask supplies.

  • Hi, I own a nice Husqvarna sewing machine that I don't really know how to use (my mom in the midwest is a master seamstress, and she handed it down). I'd be glad to loan it to BARN or any individual who wants to sew masks but doesn't have a machine.

  • Hello, I have been sewing masks as well, working with different patterns and more importantly different types of fabric. Filtration and breathability are two important variables. Though certainly, we won't be making N95 level of protection, I think that a layer of non-woven material is especially important for filtration. Please see the two following articles. Possibly, re-thinking the currently used fabric of terry cloth, which is woven, would better protect the mask recipients and usefulness of sewers generous intentions.
