COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER TO SEW MASKS FOR THOSE ON THE FRONTLINE
Across the nation bridal store owners and their staff, family and friends have joined forces to help make masks for our first responders, health care workers, and essential employees. We are so proud of the outpouring of love and support from members of our industry.

Joy Salyards, owner of Isabella Grace Bride has been partnering with sewers across Virginia from Maurertown to Charlottesville to make much-needed masks for our essential workers. Thus far she has donated enough garment bags to make 40,000 masks!!
She says, “My heart is full from the outpouring of help with COVID-19 from different sewing groups from Fort Valley, Maurertown, New Market, Grottoes, and Dayton. In the last two days, we have donated new garment bags to these sewing groups to turn them into masks for our frontline workers to stay as safe as possible while they risk their lives to save others and us. If you are a sewing group or individual that is making masks, please message the store and we will get you supplies. We will be donating our garment bags until we have no more or this COVID-19 has been defeated.”
To date, heroes have sewn more than 12,000 masks. THANK YOU TO EACH ONE SEWING!!!! FYI, one garment bag will make 40 masks. If you have any at home, please consider donating them to a group that will put them to GREAT use. If we ALL do our part in helping and in staying home, as a UNITED country we have this!
