Facemask 2020

Facemask 2020

Facemask 2020

WOW!  And I Do Mean !WOW!

I can’t make that text any bigger for it to be any stronger!

What a crazy 2020 we’re having! 

We here at Comfy Quilts N Things are striving to help out any way we can.

SO….  Do you need a facemask?

 

Covers N95 mask

We completely understand the need for a mask these days. And maybe you just don’t have the time to sit down and make one or more. Could be you have a passel of kids at home – who has time to make masks at that point? Then there’s the possibility you don’t like to sew or don’t have the means to sew.

Enter Comfy Quilts N Things!

We have had many requests on Facebook and Instagram for not only facemasks, but a way to make donations to help out.

Here’s my point of view – I’ve been reluctant to take money for this cause! We, as members of PLANET EARTH, are in a time of great need and when I see people charging outlandish prices – well, it makes my blood boil.

So, even though I’m reluctant to take money, it’s been said that my time is worth something and up to now, we have been paying for all the shipping. Thus, my concession is to make them extra special and not just randomness.

 We have a couple of styles we’re making – one that will fit nicely over an existing medical grade facemask (pictured above).   This pattern was designed by a nurse for nurses.  It was commented that this mask will fit over the N95 mask.

The other style is the basic contoured mask.

We are at a point of providing them with ties only.  Elastic is becoming a premium and we would like to be sure it is available for those making the medical-grade masks.  That means we aren’t buying it for ourselves, but we’re leaving it for those that need it the most. 

To make this worth your while, we have decided to stay in line with our customizing methods!  From us, you can choose your color!  Why not?  We gotta wear them – might as well rock them!

Here’s option #1 (Yep, there’s an Option #2)

1.  Fill out the form below

2.  We’ll send you pictures of fabrics we have on hand.

We are NOT charging for masks made from our stock on hand.

Donations are accepted! 


Then there’s Option #2!  Your VERY special mask

1.  You order fabric for a custom mask and have it shipped to us!

2.  We’ll order fabric for your custom mask!

In this case, we’re asking for a minimum $10.00 to get your fabric ordered.  If you would like to donate more – use the button below – 

You may use this form to tell what you would like to do

1.  What design are you thinking? We’ve have had a request for Sugar Skulls so far

2.  How many, what sizes, what style – Please give us as much information as you can.

We will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Perhaps you don’t want or need a mask(s)

BUT you want make a donation.

Your donation will go far to keep our small business afloat and help to ship our the masks we’re making to those in need of them.

On that note, I need to get to working!  Thank you all for your support and I’m very excited to be able to give something back!

Breathing At A New Level

Hey Friends!

In all this fun we’re having these days, please take time to breathe. Not only does the breathing keep us alive, but it cleanses our systems.  Don’t let the all this ‘STUFF’ get you down! Instead, QUILT! AND BREATHE!

Even going to the grocery store can be challenge to getting a deep breath.  We stood in line OUTSIDE of Costco for an hour and a half.  

It’s crazy out there.

 

As has become my own habit, I breathe best when in my sewing cave! I can let the stresses of the rest of the world melt away from me.  So many things come into focus!

Whoops! I lied! I don’t always breathe in my cave.

I found this mask on YouTube by  Riley Blake Designs

It’s a mask made by a nurse for nurses and had room to fit over the N95 mask.

I had become so involved with making face masks in the past week and a half that I was letting it stress me.  I want to be helpful during this time of extreme need!  Don’t get me wrong there. 

But, our daughter came down with an upper respiratory viral infection and got told to stay home from work for 14 days.  Which, maybe in itself, wasn’t a bad thing.  Except, she’s stressing over her son and not bringing in any money, etc.  So, the breathing just wasn’t happening for me either. 

Thus, the face masks became a stress and I’m pretty sure I was letting the hype get to me. Or, the fact that the Hubs was poo-pooing the whole thing. MEN!

As of yesterday, I cleaned off all surfaces (again) and hid all face mask making materials. 

I put this quilt on Fancy (my longarm machine).  I’ve decided to name this quilt “Sunshine in my Rain”.  Because, literally, this quilt has brought sunshine into a rainy time. 

I believe I’m going to make it a sampler to display some of designs I love to use and perhaps some I’m going to make up along the way. 

I believe this quilt is going to go to a friend of mine.  She recently lost her dad after caring for him for a long time. She needs a bit of sunshine in her rainy time also and this quilt has done the trick for me for now!

Sunshine in my Rain

Do you have a quilt top you would like me to quilt for you?

Take a look at our Longarm Quilting Services page. 

Now, I can breathe!

Quilting helps me do that and for now, I’m good!

I’ll finish this one, and two more client quilts.  Then I can get back to the face masks.  

I have enough to do to keep the air going in and out for a time.  I can pray and find peace during these times of trouble.
