A Stack of Cloth Face Masks

When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended in April that everyone wear cloth coverings to protect themselves and others from COVID-19, many Vermonters dusted off their sewing machines to make their own or pulled out their winter balaclavas. If your homemade mask is looking a little ragged and you are hoping to buy something professionally made, several Vermont businesses have stepped up to the challenge and are make comfortable, long-lasting face masks! With COVID-19 very much an ongoing public health crisis and the Vermont Department of Health recommending all Vermonters wear cloth face coverings when outside of the home, now might be the perfect time to buy yourself a new mask.


Sewin’ in Vermont makes bags, hats, and other fabric goods. They’ve pivoted to cloth face masks at six dollars for adults or five dollars for children. The masks are made of two fabric layers and include a wire nose piece for comfort! Best of all, the masks sport interesting designs so that you feel like you’re wearing something unique.
