Join Zoom Meeting

I have been making Face Masks with ECA across the State. The Extension Homemakers have taken on this project to help out local community needs and Statewide they are sending homemade masks to Community Members, Farmers, and Farmworkers that need them.

I will be hosting an online Zoom class for sewing these face masks on Friday, May 8, 2020, at noon. This class is a basic sewing class that will help you learn how to sew. Kits will be provided that can be picked up from the box outside of our office at 730 N. Granville St. Edenton NC. The box is located outside on the paved side of the building next to our door. The kits will include 2 pieces of fabric and 2 pieces of elastic. Call or text Mary Morris at 252-741-0026 for your kit. You will need a sewing machine, thread, and straight pins. If you don’t have a sewing machine you can also hand sew.

Go to the Chowan County website to get the Zoom link for the Basic Online Sewing Class on May 8 at noon. You can also email me directly mary_morris@ncsu.edu and I will send you the link.

If you still need a mask and don’t want to make your own reach out to me and we will make sure you get one. You can call the office at 252-482-6585 or email me mary_morris@ncsu.edu to request a mask.
