About & Contact

We were a collective of volunteers and stitchers who worked April–Oct, 2020 to fill Pittsburgh’s need for safe, washable, reusable masks.

So many of our neighbors volunteered cutting, stitching, sanitizing/washing, vacuum-sealing, and delivering masks as quickly as we could to fill Pittsburghs need for masks when they were not available. We also had volunteers coordinating our donations, volunteers, requests, and deliveries, as well as volunteers researching material science and medical research, and sourcing and buying supplies.
