Image of mask sewing equipmentHealth authorities are now recommending masks as an extra layer of protection to use in addition to other covid-safe practices (hand washing, physical distancing etc).  How about sewing some washable masks for yourself, your family, church members, or the wider community?  These can be made using recycled materials you may find around your own home.

Read Victorian Department of Health and Human Services mask making recommendation here.

Or if you want to get really creative some ideas for masks are available on the Spotlight website here:  https://www.spotlightstores.com/projects/how-to-make-a-face-mask
Please note that the NSW government are now recommending masks be worn in places of worship.

Let the church office know if you plan to knit a hat.  We will get a collection together to get to the distributors.

Knitting materialsRemember to keep safe and stay healthy!  The latest health and safety guidelines in regards to physical distancing must be maintained if working in groups!  How about organising a knit-a-thon with a couple of friends in your backyard or other outdoor space?  Find a sunny space and get “CWAC”ing!
