As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, calls for making fabric masks are growing.
Before sharing anything here, I wanted to separate fact from fiction.
My blog provides you with all the conclusions of my research and investigations.
And the answer is clear - get your machines at the ready, there is an urgent need to sew fabric masks!

So, what’s important to remember?
- a fabric mask is not medical equipment,
- a fabric mask improves barrier efforts: reduction of hand-mouth contact,
- a fabric mask prevents wearers from contaminating others with their spit,
- a fabric mask helps to emphasize social distancing: if you are seen wearing a mask, you can be sure that there will be more than a meter between you and other people,
- sewing a fabric mask helps to prevent shortages,
- sewing a fabric mask preserves the stock of FFP2 and surgical masks for caregivers,
- for good performance, it is preferable to choose thick cotton for the outer fabric and lining,
- for better performance, a "filter" in a non-woven material must be inserted between the first 2 layers,
- a fabric mask doesn’t remove the need for regular handwashing,
- to be effective, a fabric mask must be worn from the bridge of the nose down to under the chin,
- before putting on your mask, wash your hands and do not touch the mask once in place !
- if I have any surgical or FFP2 masks, I will offer them to healthcare workers
