Make your own mask demonstration
On Thursday 21st May we were pleased to offer a free mask making demonstration by Genesis supporter, Nancy Lee.
As some of you may know, Nancy started producing face masks in exchange for sponsorship towards her Cycle in Northern Vietnam in November this year.
Nancy kindly shared her knowledge in a clear and concise, step by step live demonstration. She also told us a little about how her mask production has become a successful fundraiser, as well as answering questions from attendees.
If you couldn’t attend but would like to make a mask; view the recording here:
Before you start, you will need:
· Elastic (6.5 inches for women, 8 inches for a man)
· 2 pieces of fabric to form front and back (7 x 8.5 inches, 7 x 9 inches for a man)
· Wadding or batting, to form filter (approx. 4 x 5 inches, can be a little smaller) *
· To turn the mask inside out once stitched; a pen, nail file, or similar
· An iron
· A sewing machine if possible. A mask can be sewed by hand of course, but this will take longer!
* if you have difficulty sourcing material, a dried out wet wipe can also be used
Whilst this video is free to view, we always welcome your kind donations. Any contribution will help fund Genesis Research Trust’s continued work towards healthier pregnancies and reducing baby loss.
The Covid-19 crisis is particularly difficult for pregnant women and people undergoing various treatments, including IVF, as clinics have closed their doors temporarily.
