Undercover Quilters in Brookhaven made 50 gowns in 7 days! “What a wonderful opportunity this project has been for each of us to feel we could control some part of this pandemic. Some donated sheets, elastic and/or bias tape; some cut gowns, some sewed gowns, some volunteered as Uber drivers, shuttling supplies and finished gowns. And others did it all. Along the way most of you continued to make masks! It has been a proud moment to be a member of Undercover Quilters.” Marise S

GOWNS FOR GOOD MADE IN AMERICA
We are raising funds towards our Gowns For Good Made In America initiative which will use our funding to support small businesses within the fashion and garment industries in the US that have pivoted their manufacturing to create PPE and in turn, donate the PPE produced in these factories to the hospitals with the most need nationwide. The fashion and garment industry businesses that have been hard hit by the effects of the pandemic will have the opportunity to keep their factories operating and their staff employed while producing much needed PPE for our Front-Line Workers. As the need for medical gowns are currently increasing, FGFH have chosen to focus on gowns to start and will be working with US based facilities to produce the gowns so all PPE will be Made in America supporting local businesses.
We have turned our website into an information hub to provide all the necessary tools such as downloadable patterns and video tutorials on how to make PPE, resources on fabrics and trims needed for medical grade PPE lists of hospitals and facilities that are seeking donations or purchases of PPE, as well as companies currently involved in producing PPE so that we can better help, connect and serve the medical and healthcare community to the supplies they need in a timely fashion.
