As professed "Fabricworms" we love fabric and quilting, and are devoted to it in all its splendor. If the fabric you start with is of high quality with vibrant colors, then the creation you make will be of the same caliber. We feature a wonderful collection of children's fabrics, featuring themes like woodland creatures, playful animals, fruits & veggies, flowers, characters, and one of my favorites, luxurious Organic Fabric!
the generous donation from Birch Organic Fabrics, Fabricworm shipped
several requests totaling over 550 yards of cotton woven fabrics for
mask makers and organizations this year. Over 5,220 general mask and N95
mask covers have been sewn and donated for front line workers and
essential employees from California to New York! That's incredible!
Thank you to the makers and people who have donated time, or organized
the distribution efforts. We. See. You. Thank you so much for sewing. These images below are just some of the ones sent in to us or tagged us from Instagram and Facebook. Volunteers are from all over the US and still continue to sew masks for requests.
Lauren Smith Janzen of Playroom Workshop and Sew Ready Kit Organizer, MillionMask Challenge - Virginia/DC/Maryland shared:
"Fabricworm's 100 yard donation inspired our MillionMask
Challenge group to create the Sew Ready Kit program. Local sewists
request a kit of precut fabric and elastic or twill, and we prepare the
kit for pick-up or delivery. We worked through the Birch Organic fabric
in April and May. We have continued the program with weekly kits and
have now sent out over 16,000 precut mask and
scrub cap kits. I credit your donation with pushing us to action to
figure out how best to mobilize volunteers and distribute kits so that masks could be sewn as quickly as possible to fill area healthcare requests.
last note: I regret that I do not have photos from healthcare workers
to share. Any "thank you" photos have been few, but every mask
that we handed out filled a direct request from a healthcare provider,
front line worker, or other essential personnel in the Washington, D.C.
region. I am truly thankful for your generous involvement in the early
weeks of need."
