I spent most of this past weekend creating re-usable cloth face masks for the local hospital staff that is serving on the front lines in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Thanks to Ann Silva’s generous donation, I have 15 yards of fabric to work with to create face masks.
With the help of my fiance and his parents, we started assembly.
Looks like we’ll have 192 finished face masks here in the next week or so!
We’re Also Making Face Masks for Essential Businesses in Albuquerque
In addition to the face masks that we’re fabricating for healthcare workers, we began manufacturing masks for several local service businesses in Albuquerque when they reached out to us. (Shout out to Sandia Green Clean for the idea to do these commercially for local businesses)
Reversible Face Masks
We made 30 of these masks for Sandia Green Clean, a local green house cleaning company. It was important they had something functional to help put their customers at ease, and also offer some variation to style for their employees to choose from.
We’re selling these masks for $15 each. Fabric and design options limited due to closures.
Masks Meeting CDC Protocols
We found the pattern for this mask in an article by the Courier Press. It meets the CDC protocols and is deemed acceptable during a crisis time like this. We made 30 of these masks for Bosque Heating Cooling & Plumbing, completely made out of black to suit their company colors.
These masks are currently selling for $12 each. Fabric and design options limited due to closures.
We’ll Continue Making Face Masks for Healthcare and Essential Businesses in Albuquerque
Give us a call at (505) 792-1498 if you are interested in getting some face masks for your essential business. We are limited on fabric and design options with closures around town, but it’s possible we could get fabric in 2-3 days if ordered online.
In the meantime, we’re going to continue work on the 192 face masks that we have in the process that is going directly to local hospitals. We’ll update you more on that as they are completed and delivered!
