Facial mask craft making

Face Mask Appeal

Can you help to make face masks?

Crossroads Together has been in contact with celebrity sewing expert and presenter John Scott.

John Scott’s varied career in costume design, sewing, fashion, film and TV has taken him from regional theatre to the Hollywood Hills and has given him many fabulous and fascinating roles and experiences along the way.

John has kindly donated 100 hand sewn face masks to Crossroads Together to get us going and we’d now like to appeal for volunteers to make more face masks.

Face masks are certainly going to be around for the foreseeable future so if you are able to help us to make more face masks for the carers we support, we would really appreciate it.

How to get started

Firstly, you will need to have some basic sewing skills,  access to a sewing machine (optional)  and some free time.

Secondly, you will need to get hold of some materials needed to make the masks. You may have some to hand or you can purchase some for for a reasonable price online or your local haberdashery store.

Next you will need to complete the registration form so we can contact you with more information about our face mask appeal.

John Scott has kindly provided us with a face mask sewing pattern and a how-to video which we can share with you once you have registered.

All face masks donated by volunteers will be given to the carers we support so that they can continue to care for the most vulnerable people in society. Many carers are on a low income due to their caring role so any help we can offer them right now would be greatly appreciated.
