Masks for Personal Protection – Free Patterns – Almost Free Masks

As you may have heard, the federal government has now recommended wearing masks in public to fight the COVID-19 epidemic.  We at T-Shirt Quilts of Texas and Shadywood Quilts agree!  We feel that masks are the key to ending this crises and getting our country back to work. 

And we want to keep our wonderful customers safe!

Obviously, people who are not sick must not reduce the supply of medical grade masks to our heroes on the front lines.  It’s going to be up to those of us who can, to make these masks ourselves.

Attached is our design for a simple pleated surgical mask that anyone with access to a sewing machine should be able to make.  Feel free to share it with anyone. 

If you are not able to make your own, we will try to make as many as we can, but keep in mind that there are just the four of us, so please don’t ask for any more than you really need.  If every customer for the past 10 years asked for four masks, the crises would be over before we could fill all the orders!

Our cost is about a dollar per mask plus shipping.  We wish we could do it for free, but then we’d be so inundated that we’d never get them made in time.  If you’ve lost your job and paying is a hardship, let us know. 

So if you need masks, just respond to this email with your count, shipping address, and email address.  When they’re ready to ship, we’ll email an invoice with a payment link.

There are LOTs of free patterns out there, but this is what we are offering. Free Mask Download.

Stay safe!
