Community

It’s a wonderful thing when a community comes together in the face of adversity. And that is happening now in Douglas County, Oregon, in the midst of calamity and invisible disease all around.

Thank you to Oregon Serigraphics owner Stephanie LaFleur, and League of Women Voters member, who is providing a link between the community and the medical community. She has arranged to provide mask materials to sewists — like the Umpqua Sewing Warriors — to produce much needed medical masks for our warriors on the frontlines — doctors, nurses and everyone else working in healthcare to help those in need. Read about this endeavor in The News-Review account published on 3/25/20.

We thank all those who are tackling the coronavirus outbreak daily to help our county, state and nation to get through this. As for the rest of us — STAY HOME — if at all possible! And Sew!
