Calling all Makers - Special COVID-19 Projects NEED YOUR HELP

(As our patterns simplify and our systems get refined, this site will be updated. Last edit: 4/16/2020)

Our healthcare industry is not prepared with the necessary quantity of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) in order to handle the incoming COVID-19 infected persons. To assist, MakerSphere is championing two projects that need your help.

Reusable Surgical Masks, Tie-back version (Priority One):

Make them! Instructions are here. And you can watch this instructional video here.

Estimated time to sew each mask is around 15-20 minutes.

We encourage you to not only make one for yourself but to make extra for your health care professionals. Finished masks can be dropped off at the Waterbury True Value hardware store during their business hours, located at 838 Waterbury-Stowe Rd. Please use the rear entrance (Shaw’s parking lot) where a clearly marked red bin is located in the vestibule.

 

DO NOT JUST DUMP FABRIC AT THE DROP OFF SITE. This is NOT HELPFUL. In fact, it puts more burden on those trying to help.

Finished shields can be dropped off at the Waterbury True Value hardware store during their business hours, located at 838 Waterbury-Stowe Rd.
