Operation Hospital Gown Update
Ezra Estes, Ondine Frauenglass and Linda Cassel completed 21 hospital gowns for Christus St. Vincent and have received another bolt of fabric that will provide pattern pieces for 60 more gowns. To date, the hospital has received over 220 gowns toward their 1,000 gown goal. Jill Carlson is sewing an additional 23 gowns on her own. All of the fabric for the project has been given to teams cutting pattern pieces and those kits are moving to available stitchers as quickly as possible. Other partners in this project include the Santa Fe Opera Guild, MAKE Santa Fe, and MeowWolf.
Miguel Maestas and Peter Taussig are manufacturing the headband pieces for face shields, and with a recent contribution from the Santa Fe HEC, are now working to complete the face shields and share them where needed.
Other SFCC sewists including Cori Bergin and Emily Powell are helping to stitch masks to support the students, faculty and staff at Cesar Chavez Community School in Albuquerque. Operation Bandana New Mexico will provide all the materials to make 200 masks.
