Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

Awesome! Terrific! Astonishing! and WHAT is so amazing? you ask… You ladies are! Jackie let me know that her pick up of masks yesterday was the largest we’ve had so far! Monday’s total was 215 masks!  Which means that you took my dare and outdid it. When I combine our previous total with a few individuals who let me know what they have donated on their own, and Monday’s total given to Jackie… that brings us to 1,059 masks made and donated by our guild to date!

This is truly heart warming and spirit lifting to think how our craft of quilting gives us the ability to help so many others in this terrible time. Your generosity is inspiring.

Since our quarantine deadline has been extended, can I throw out another challenge? Let’s shoot for 1500 masks. What do you think? Can we do it?



  1. Jackie Groszkowski says:

    Even though I knew what this blog was going to say before I opened it I still got tears in my eyes as I read it. I’m so proud of our members and even some nonmembers. It’s just amazing what we can do when we work together.
    Mary Ellen has issued the challenge. Can we get to 1500? Knowing how hard everyone’s working I know the answer to that.

  2. Theresa Utz says:

    I’ve been making masks-for family members who need them for work and up to 12. They need keeps growing. Will keep you posted on how many more I make.

  3. Mickey Wittliff says:

    Made 2sewn masks for my daughter at Roswell. My son in law , God bless him, wears. One to work. I’m no sewer. But I found a no sew one using rubber bands. Easy and great. I don’t have to be embarrassed

  4. Mary Ellen, In addition to the masks I have given to Jackie I have made 25 masks for neighbors and for Ladies of Charity.
