Lincoln Covid Sewists
Over 61 weeks and 34,386 masks, 585 surgical scrub caps, 269 hospital gowns, and 12 pairs of surgical shoe covers later, the Lincoln Covid Sewists made a HUGE contribution to 75 local organizations, including Friendship Home!
The Lincoln Covid Sewists consists of 110 sewists and donors who donated material. The group also made two giant mask-shaped quilts for two local museums that have 90-100 masks attached. You have the opportunity to view these quilts on Friday, June 4th at the International Quilt Museum at 5:30 pm and then on Saturday, June 5th at the Nebraska History Museum at 11:00 am.
We are so grateful to the Lincoln Covid Sewists who helped keep Friendship Home protected throughout the pandemic.
