Archiving Durham’s Covid-19 Experience

Keeping a journal, writing notes, and recording your thoughts can be helpful in times like these. Reflecting on your experience throughout the COVID-19 crisis is important and your perspective could some day be a useful record for people studying the history of this pandemic.

Help us record the local experience and feel free to share with us on social media or email:

 I received an email from one of my quilting sister. I decided to try it by making masks for my family. I used the balance of my batik fabric to make some mask for the Church project.  I have a small stack of materials at my home that I had purchased over the years. So, I didn’t have to go out to purchase anything. However, I am currently out of fusible that I used in the masks. 

Check out the instructions Lena used for making the masks here!
