Masking Covid-19 Masks with Brunswick Fabric Artists

BAC and fabric artists are firing up their sewing machines.  Over 10 artists from around the county (Southport, Oak Island, St James, Holden Beach, Supply, Navassa & Cedar Grove) are making masks for Covid-19 to help our emergency responders and front line service medical staff with keeping their PPE in play longer.  Materials have been donated by residents and businesses including Carolina Shirt Company, Awesome Website & Coastal Race Productions and Elemental Horizons.

Want to help? Sew? Cut? Donate Materials? We’ll take it! We do Porch and Parking lot exchanges!

Know of someone who needs a mask? All donated materials are going to medical and frontline services folks first for FREE.

However some of artists do have sets from personal materials for people who are working in storefronts, clerks, housekeeping and such for minimal donations.

Here is what we need:

TIES: 1/4″ elastic or 2mm elastic paracord or seam /bias tape

THREAD: cotton or all purpose – any colors

FABRIC: 100% Cotton

Have a functioning Sewing Machine you’d like to lend or donate? –  we have sewers without machines.

Want to donate cash to purchase?  Go to our donation button on this home page.

The Brunswick Arts Council

In every vibrant, culturally active community, the arts are key to the quality of life and the health of economy. Thus the BAC was founded in 3.982 to bring artistic programs, shows, workshops, and exhibits to Brunswick County. The Brunswick Arts Council soon became the Designated Partner of the North Carolina Arts Council to assist other non-profit art organizations through its Grassroots funding program.

Today the Brunswick Arts Council outreach includes scholarships, grants for individual artists and groups, and enrichment programs for Brunswick County Schools. The History of BAC >
