We are sewing face masks to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Maine. This website aims to provide resources and information to sewers and wearers locally and beyond.
A Message from the Yarmouth Sewing Warriors
We are a group of sewers in Yarmouth, Maine who have organized to share resources and distribute face masks to those in need. We began organizing in April 2020. As of December 2020, we have provided over 8,600 masks to congregate living and health care facilities, nonprofit organizations, schools and individuals who cannot afford to buy them. The majority of these masks have gone to facilities and individuals in Yarmouth and the greater Portland area. Every mask is handmade by a local sewer.
Going forward, our prioritized focus remains the same. We will provide to Yarmouth
facilities as needed and to local individuals who cannot afford to buy them. Secondarily, we will also provide to facilities and agencies outside of Yarmouth in collaboration with other
mask-making organizations throughout Maine. We aim to get masks in the hands of those with the highest risk of COVID infection and the least resources.
