#Covid Expert: If you wear a #mask & you get infected, you're much more likely to get less sick & even be asymptomatic. #WearAMask: It can save you AND your neighbors. /thread
Researchers tested homemade #masks & found they can be quite effective IF they fit well. The combo that performed close to N95 material: cotton+2 layers of chiffon (evening gowns!) or natural silk. They're more static-y. #sewing #WearAMask…
Using cotton+flannel or a cotton quilt with cotton-polyester batting were also highly effective. But even small gaps can reduce their filtering efficiency. With studies showing people who wear #masks get LESS SICK & often remain asymptomatic, it's vital to #WearAMask.

Hey @SimplySewing_ I like to make you aware of heavyhandesness and rudeness by your magazine admins who run a what seemingly looks a general page on Facebook for fans of @sewingbee #gbsb and #sewing in general, but clearly is not. 1/n
Your admins remove posts from sewers using patterns from other sources claiming their post is Promotion of other magazines, supposedly breaking page rule 10. Even posts critical of other sources’ patterns was deemed promotion🧐... 2/n…
I then wanted to post feedback on why my post had been removed, and what my view is on ‘promotion’ in general, but this not even reached the Fb fan page as blocked from the outset by your admins whi seemingly are unable to cope with genuine community feedback 3/n

So as has been widely reported, personal protective equipment (PPE) is running low for medical personnel during #coronavirus #Covid_19

Today my awesome pediatrician wife & my mother-in-law used at-home materials to sew masks


They used 100% cotton fabric and cut one 9”x8” rectangle and one 9”x7” rectangle, as well as cutting a pipe cleaner to 6”

Then they applied HeatnBond (soft stretch variety) in an 8” strip centered over the larger rectangle
