UPDATE 4/9/20 - These are unavailable at this time
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY (but please read)
For anyone sewing fabric masks for US health care workers, we will happily supply the elastic for free and will ship out ASAP - just pay shipping. We will dig as deep into our stash of baby headbands as we need to during this crisis. Please only take as many as you plan to make masks with, so there's enough to go around. Larger quantities of supplies will be provided if there's a group working together.
At this time, this is only for people sewing masks to be donated to health care workers and other front line warriors. Please tell us in the comments who you are sewing masks for, and confirm that these supplies will not be used for selling masks. If you don't include this information we may have to move to the next in line if supplies become limited.
Skinny 1/8" headband - 14" unstretched. Cut in half for 7" ear loops, this is the standard material being used. Good for washing etc. Assorted colors.
Fold-Over Elastic Headband - 15" unstretched. Cut in half for ear loops, use multiple to go around the head, several options. Not tested under harsh washing conditions, but reasonable to assume it will hold up well. Also this headband is comfortable on an adult head, so can be used for sewing on two buttons to hold straps (pictures coming soon).
Lace Headband - 14" unstretched, materials are velvet and lace elastic. Cut in half for ear loops, use two cut and stretched around back of head, or whatever creative option. We haven't tested how well it holds up in harsh washing conditions yet. Anyone making single use masks - these may be a good option.
Cut-off each day is 4pm, packages of headbands will ship out same day. You will receive an email from us that has the shipping details, please reference that if you want to track your package. Please read our shipping information here.
Use code LEXPICKUP at checkout so you aren't charged shipping. Your elastic pieces will be available for pickup at 626 E High St in Lexington KY, we are on the corner of High St and Lafayette across from Woodland Park. Red brick house with white pillars. Once you receive the email from us they're ready! There will be hanging up by the front / side porch steps with your name on it, you can pickup at your convenience. IMPORTANT! We are double bagging - assume the outside bag is dirty, please discard in the trash can by the box.
