    Since good health still reigns, I’ve begun sewing face masks for neighbors and medical personnel in my home studio in West Seattle, now in Week Three of “Shelter in Place.” The 2-ply 100% cotton masks are made according to the directions published in the New York Times; they are available in Adult and Petite sizes, and are attached by cotton ties. See pictures here.

    I’m offering them on a complimentary basis to medical personnel upon request, and $5.00 each for other folks. Cash on delivery: pick them up at my home studio in West Seattle (with sufficient social distancing, of course). Limit: 6 per household.

    For info, see my business website or just email me.

    Thanks to all those who’ve written with orders for face masks! Production is going full steam.
    If you’d like to specify a particular fabric, you can see some examples on: https://dailyjoywithhoneygirltaichiandwisdomforbeginners.wordpress.com/
    Every day I post a pic of recent creations, showing some of the colors and fabrics that are available.

    Just noted that the CDC has posted updated guidelines and wanted customers to know that our face masks are CDC compliant.
    – 100% cotton
    – Adult or petite (for teens or children)
    – 2 layers of fabric:
    Includes: 1) stylish cover (of your choice–see above–or neutral) made of premium cotton and 2) lining made of white or grey Kona cotton (weight: 4.35 oz. per square yard).
    – fabric ties (allows for tighter fit)

    Be well, stay well.

    For all those who have face masks, here is a useful reminder from today’s New York Times about how to wear and care for face masks.
    Be well!

    Now that we’ve all been told to wear masks, questions are swirling around what kind to wear? Today’s New York Times features a helpful photo spread explaining the four kinds: N95, Medical, Homemade, and Homemade with Filters, and states that the Homemade model (which we are producing) “can sometimes protect the way a simple medical version does.” It also notes that the fourth kind, with pocket for filter, “can be effective but present risks.” So we’re sticking with the Homemade model and orders can be placed now for early-mid May pick-up. Thanks for reading, and for wearing those masks!

    Update on 5/11/20: Yes, I’m still sewing cotton face masks. Lead time is about 2-3 weeks. Prices will rise on June 1 to $15 each (complimentary always to elderly, unemployed or medical workers), so reserve yours now!

    Has your mask gotten floppy or sad-looking due to washing? Since it is 100% cotton, ironing is all you need. Spruce it up with a quick ironing–with steam, on the “cotton” setting.
    Or consider the new, improved masks coming soon from Honey Girl Books and Gifts: On June 1, I’ll discontinue the 2-ply “crisis” item, and begin offering a new and improved item: 3-ply cotton masks with a crisper look (due to interfacing) and the adorable HGBG puppy logo, for $15 each. (Complimentary masks will remain available of course, for as long as this COVID-19 era lasts…)
    Stay safe, neighbors!

    Good to know that the retro fabric-tie-style face mask such as we produce out here in West Seattle, is among this season’s most chic accoutrements! according to designers in NYC and abroad: Vogue!
