No-Panic Guide Live: Homemade Masks

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM on Wednesday, April 8, 2020

The CDC’s recent recommendation that everybody wear face coverings has more people looking for easy-to-get options. Curious about the specifics of when to wear face coverings or how to even make your own? KPCC infrastructure correspondent and avid seamstress Sharon McNary has you covered. Join Sharon and KPCC In Person on Wednesday, April 8 at 2:30pm as she walks you through a quick tutorial on converting that old cotton T-shirt into a brand-new face covering. Additionally, Sharon will check in with small business owner and former nurse Sonia Smith-Kang about her recent shift from making children’s clothes to creating handmade masks. She’ll also be answering YOUR questions.
