Special COVID-19 Coverage
Hello Portland Community! These are stressful times and we’ve had lots of inquiries about how the sewn-goods community can help with the current shortage of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) at hospitals and healthcare facilities. We have no first-hand knowledge of how to make FDA approved gowns, face masks or eye shields.
BUT, in our role as a connector of all things, we have set up a Slack channel in order to facilitate a conversation and knowledge sharing. We don’t know what to do, but you might. Collectively, we can overcome the challenges ahead. If you are in the sewn-goods industry and would like to participate in the conversation, please join us on Slack.
ALSO, if you are part of the medical community, join the discussion and tell us what you need and how to get it to you. OR, if you have funds available to finance donating PPE to healthcare professionals, feel free to join in.
