Let’s Sew for Covid-19!
Many facilities across the state, including Bryan Hospital in Lincoln, are requesting we make masks, shoe covers and surgical hats. Tabitha is also in need of medical gowns.
Quilters have the 100% cotton firmly woven fabric and we all now have the time to make them during the quarantine. The general information sheet (see links to documents below) details how they can be donated at Bryan East, Lincoln. They provided sample patterns for the masks, shoe covers and surgical caps.
We encourage you to donate in your community wherever they may be needed. Contact your local medical facilities to determine what they may need and what they are able to accept. Bryan, for instance, is not specific on the style of mask made, but other facilities may have preferences.
Info Specific to Bryan
Instead of dropping off finished items at Bryan, they are now being collected at Sheila Green's home (call 402-464-4040 for address) or at Cosmic Cow, 6136 Havelock in Lincoln -- Monday-Saturdays from 10:00-4:00.
