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

I always thought of getting a heavy (ie 20 oz) tweed overcoat or something studier, then lining it with cashmere. Soft on the inside, yet hard-wearing on the outside.I like those blends. Look, feel and wear well over time.
Good cashmere top coating at 600.00 or more per yard isn’t what I want to wear in rain or bad weather.
Very expensive and very warm.
I have a Melton duffle coat from brooks brothers, it’s very warm, soft and thick, and good in snow and light rain but if it’s pouring rain it gets extremely heavy. Melton is underappreciatedLoden cloth is similar to melton. Both are made for outerwear and exposure to bad weather
