Mini-Myrt's Great Face Mask Sew In

We're going to host a special 20-minute Mini-Myrt at noon Eastern on Thurs, 26 Mar 2020 to be known as the Great Face Mask Sew In. Thanks to Kathy who inspired us, we will go through the directions provided by Joann Fabrics & Crafts here:

Here's the link for first time Mini-Myrt registrants:

I'll will be using fabrics from Ol' Myrt's stash. Why? Our local Joann's had given out all kits out for the day, were short staffed and couldn't make more at the time Mr. Myrt stopped by. 

Luckily the store's website also provided a link to the YouTube video embedded below. Please take Michelle D's response to the project to heart. 

For our Great Face Mask Sew In, I'll have signs to label the measurements so you won't need to rely on the audio for directions. I'll also have several in progress, to speed up the demonstration process.

I hereby challenge everyone with a sewing machine to make 5 masks each. You can do it! And to keep track of our efforts, here a link to a shared Google Sheet where you may enter your name and number created, updating as necessary from time to time. You'll need:

  • 9x12 inch fabric
  • 9x12 inch flannel or interfacing
  • 7 inch length of elastic X 2 (one for each ear)
  • thread
  • straight pins
  • sewing machine
  • iron & board or pad

Here's the link to the Google Sheet for reporting the number of masks donated:

Donate the masks to your local Joann's store, which will in turn give these to local hospitals.

If you value the interactive genealogy education provided in DearMYRTLE webinars, please consider donating. THANK-YOU in advance.

Happy family tree climbing!
