We are still accepting donations in the form of gift cards.
As soon as a gift card is purchased we are applying towards precut yardage at cost. When we are at the store we will continue to put those donations out on the table. Prepackaged bias table will also be available on that table as supplies last. These donations are meant for mask making for medical personnel and other people that have requested masks through the Facebook group Sew. Some. Good. Please do not take this free material to make for your friends and family that are purchasing masks from you. If you are giving out free masks ask them to make a donation. This is very important to support these efforts. 
If you bought (at full price plus tax) a yard of designer quilting cotton of and 2 yards of fold over elastic and made 6 masks that is less that $3 a mask and you would be supporting our efforts to stay open. They are not expensive but for those making masks by the hundreds it adds up. Please leave the donations to those donating the masks. 
Those of you that have purchased your mask making supplies thank you! We are able to stay open because of you. Thank you!!!!
