Some Good News
AccuQuilt's Pam Heller and Joy Banfield joined Elizabeth Townsend Gard on the Just Wanna Quilt podcast to discuss how we're helping quilters make homemade masks and mask covers easier and quicker than ever before. Click here for more ideas!
Visit WeNeedMasks.org to see who in your community needs mask donations. AccuQuilt is partnering with the organization to help bring mask covers and masks to those who need them most. Please note that the CDC does not consider homemade masks personal protective equipment (PPE) and will only be used by professionals as mask covers or when no other alternative is available. Prewash your fabric to be sure the mask won't shrink at all after sewn.

Increase your efficiency when helping your community with AccuQuilt's face mask dies for GO! and Studio fabric cutters. Choose from 3 styles, including a small, medium and large size for our standard shape. Additionally, 100% of net profits will be donated from the sale of face mask dies to nationally recognized non-profit, No Kid Hungry, a non-profit organization who helps schools and community groups across the country develop and implement new ways to feed kids that rely on school programs. Donations are being used along with emergency grant funding to feed children during the school shut-down related to COVID-19.
