Sally connects our work in the Auntie Sewing Squad to wartimes, “During WWII my mother knitted for the Red Cross. They’d issue her khaki wool and she’d knit socks, gloves, hats, scarves and other things for the soldiers. She still talks about it, still remembers her sock pattern. It gave her great purpose, made her part of the effort. I feel like this is our war, but we’re fighting to protect people in a time when our government has completely failed us, and we’re doing it one mask at a time. It may not seem like much, but to a person in need who receives a mask handmade by a complete stranger, I imagine it makes them feel that they matter, that someone cares.”
