Mask Chal­lenge

Ottawa Citizen - - You -

Cindy Jones put the sewing ma­chine to good use at the Fjäll­räven out­door cloth­ing and gear store in West­boro on Fri­day, July 31. Jones is part of the Face­book group Sewing for Ot­tawa that, to date, has do­nated over 20,000 care­fully crafted masks to front­line work­ers and var­i­ous or­ga­ni­za­tions in need. Last Fri­day, Jones de­cided to chal­lenge her­self and see if she could stich 100 masks in one day, fin­ish­ing up with 105 masks in hand. The plan was to have 50 of the masks do­nated to em­ploy­ees of busi­nesses around the West­boro area, with the other 50 go­ing to the Sewing for Ot­tawa group to dis­trib­ute. To throw a green twist into it all, Fjäll­räven do­nated the fabric from rem­nants of re­pairs and al­ter­ations the store has done to gear from stores across Canada.
