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

Curious why you repaired it with camo fabric vice something closer to the original waxed cotton?Here’s my 15ish year old Beaufort. Time for a new one or does she still have some life left?
My mother is actually a (semi) professional seamstress so the price was right for this particular mend. She happened to have this camo fabric and I just thought it would give it a cool look. If I get her to patch it up a bit more, i might use a different cloth this time around and in fact will probably have to because I don't think she has any more of that camo. I like the idea of a patchwork mended, beat up Barbour. I'll post pics if I can convince her to do some more work on it (the baker's son has to beg for bread!).Curious why you repaired it with camo fabric vice something closer to the original waxed cotton?
Looks like it has plenty of life left. Were it mine, I would send to Barbour to have it repaired, restored and rewaxed by the manufacturer.
