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

Thanks for sharing! If anyone is up for putting a group buy together so we can get free US shipping, I’m down for 1. I believe we need 4 or 5 total.FYI one of the nicest madder fabrics seems to be back. It looks brighter in the website photos so you might verify with Patrizio that it's the same one I'm wearing on the right, if you are interested.

Nice ties! Link?Is it normal to get ties a bit wider than what was ordered? I had a request for 3.15 inch width and got two ties with 3.25. Surprisingly looks noticeably wider than what I’d expect, especially since I always go with ties between 3-3.15 inch width. On a positive note, I ordered the ties a few inches longer than I have previously and they tie a much nicer and bigger know with effortless dimples.
Attached is a width comparison between my new tie (Burgundy) and an older tie (Brown) I ordered in the same width (3.15in)

Looks to me from the pic like Patrizio has changed his pattern to a bottle neck like pattern. Could be that he translates inches to cm and rounds up. FWIW, I ordered a dozen ties from him last month and didn't notice any difference compared to my older ties.
I have that one in blue (posted a couple of pages back) and no matter which tie i buy it is for me the best Medallion print ever. Alternatively, both are available here:FYI one of the nicest madder fabrics seems to be back.
