Are you a crafter or sewer? Do you live near a JOANN fabric store? If so they have an excellent opportunity to help get masks and gowns to medical workers in your area.

Joanna Craft Stores

In a press release, JOANN stores laid out their plan to let people come into their working classrooms, and make masks and gowns for FREE, as long as you plan to donate them.

Beginning Monday, March 23, while adhering to social distancing guidelines, JOANN will open its classrooms to any who want to help make these essential items. Participating locations will offer sewing machines, materials and guidance to help customers safely make facemasks and covers, gowns and other items to donate to America’s hospitals. JOANN will provide and donate 100% of the supplies needed for these projects for those who come in to make.

Hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country are scrambling to find enough PPE — Personal Protective Equipment — including masks and gowns to deal with this coronavirus epidemic.

This is a GREAT way to help donate to the cause! Reusable masks and gowns would GREATLY help the medical community.

All open JOANN locations will serve as collection points for those making in their homes, and all items created by customers will be donated to help medical systems extend their dwindling supplies of protective equipment, and will be used at the hospital’s discretion.

JOANN Press Release

Now, at first, I’ll admit, I wondered why JOANN fabric stores wouldn’t just provide fabric, thread, and elastic to people that wanted to make masks and gowns from home.

But, think about it. Not everyone is as honest as you and me. They could potentially lose TONS of product and money, if they just handed out free fabric and supplies.

JOANN is giving a DEEP discount on cotton fabric, and the supplies you will need to make masks at home.

Then, you just drop them off to any JOANN store, and they will have them delivered for you. It couldn’t be easier.

They just laughed at me. I asked for kits to make 100 masks for the hospital, was given nothing, so I ended up buying my own fabric. I will go else where from now on for my fabric. Way to go JoAnn Fabrics.
