Belle Threads Cares: What we are doing to help during COVID-19 
We at Belle Threads are doing our best to help during this Pandemic. Although Tannia our Owner is 38 weeks and counting and the shop has been closed to made to order purchases that hasn't stopped us from helping over 160 healthcare workers receive handmade face masks. 
The need in the medical community is truly overwhelming with more requests coming in daily so we are doing our best to keep churning them out as fast as we can. 

Here are our fabric masks in use at one of the
hospitals with the most covid cases
in our country Holy Name Health

In addition to the efforts put forth from her and her team to sew masks they are also giving easy instructions in a YouTube tutorial you can find HERE 
Although these times are undoubtedly scary, one thing remains true, we are in this together. Belle Threads is humbled by the need that is so apparent in the medical community and we are so thankful we can help in anyway possible. 
Because we also know that it is becoming increasingly important for everyone to have access to face masks - Here in NJ Governor Murphy signed an executive order requiring all store employees and shoppers to wear face masks or coverings when shopping.
These are unprecedented times and we know not everyone cannot pick up a sewing machine and figure out how to make a mask, even with an easy tutorial, so we are working on an initiative to start producing masks for purchase. However, as our goal has been to donate and not profit off of these masks we are going to be doing these so they are reasonably priced to the public and for every mask purchased we will donate a mask to the medical community. This will help fund our resources to keep producing these masks for the medical community as long as we can. 
Keep a lookout in a future post with the information on ordering masks and more on how you can help during this pandemic. We appreciate all the love and support we have gotten on our initiative and we hope to continue to do this as long as the need is there.
