CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

There's some good info above on materials. If people are OK with it, I suggest moving those posts over there, so information can be centralized.@dieworkwear was good enough to create a thread for @jefferyd 's project for sewers. here: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/calling-on-home-sewers-for-a-project.661854/
Let's move the conversation on that initiative there so that @jefferyd can address any questions there, in a focused discussion.
there should be ton of B&M unsold. the problem lies if yoox can absorb so much inventory at once. I'm pretty sure after the acquisition it has much more debt now with its watchmaking parent under a lot of luxury stress... If the situation clears up by may then i believe europe will unleash spending power from the financial stimulus from the ECB and some of these stores may be saved.So, will YOOX be doing good business after all this?
Yeah Mr Porter shut down there warehouse too.Received a couple of emails today from stores that have not only closed all their B&M locations, but now also warehouse operations, which means no online orders. Stores include Ralph Lauren and Paul Smith. So literally zero sales. Oof.
Man, that's sad, I just saw B&B at the Vegas trade shows a few weeks ago. BLDWN always had a nice team of people working for them, I'd often see them around the LA factories.We have the first two small business retail/clothing casualties (that I know of) who are shutting down completely, BLDWN and Bridge & Burn.
Turns out B&B may not be completely closing down, they may just be shutting things down temporarily. Hope to see them come back as we'd hate to lose them as neighbors in Portland.Man, that's sad, I just saw B&B at the Vegas trade shows a few weeks ago.
