SoCo Mask-Makers

Seamstresses went to work when COVID hit, sewing masks for people when there were no N95s left for healthcare workers. The rest of us could have a 3-layer cotton mask with a carbon filter pocket.

For most, wearing a mask, sanitizing hands, limiting personal contact, settling into our pod, are all ways to stay healthy amid the pandemic. The most common items we need are pocket hand-sanitizer and plenty of masks so we can wash and reuse them.

It’s become an art-form for some! Fabric choices, seasonal patterns, personal color preferences...it’s a way to express who you are while you protect yourself and others. With so many mask options, and so many places we find them in stores, we can own plenty, wash them every time we use them, and change colors with our clothing.

I found vintage pins at Gin’Gilli’s in Geyserville to dress up my masks. These things are going to be around for a while, we might as well have fun with them.

Customize your face-coverings by the fabrics you choose and consider decorating them with broches!

Have you noticed that people are beginning to find it easy to tell when someone is smiling and recognize people in spite of having half our faces under cover?

We’re adapting, as humans do.

So let’s have some fun. Here are a local mask-makers you can purchase from directly or find hand-made masks where you shop.

Different style mask. It uses darts in chin and nose and fabric bindings for a good snug fit and comfort (no pain on ears). It takes longer to sew , about 1.5 hrs each, so I am having to charge $20 each for some of my time and Materials. $10+
