New York Fashion Week Designer make masks for healthcare workers and hospital staff

A North Carolina and New York Fashion Week designer is making a difference in the lives of healthcare workers and hospital staff all around the state.

Tasha Robinson, of AtOnce Designs located in Jacksonville, North Carolina said she heard about healthcare workers given only one disposable mask to use for the whole week while treating patients during the coronavirus pandemic and she wanted to give them something with a nice design that’s protective and reusable. 

My masks are reusable and washable. I did research to figure out which fabric to use that’s the closest to staying healthy and research shows that cotton is the best fabric to use if you can’t get the medical-grade fabric, she said.

Robinson said that healthcare workers and hospital staff will be protected with her masks.

I also add interfacing as a filter in my masks, which will add more structure and protection.

The masks are $10 each. For healthcare workers and hospital staff, the masks are $10 and you get one free. (Yep, that’s right! Healthcare workers and hospital staff will get a free mask added to their purchase.)

Robinson told The North Carolina Beat that today her company is donating some of the masks to the VA hospital in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

I wanted to use my gift of sewing to help others during this time, so I can do my part.

Robinson said her company will ship your order to you and you can place your order at the AtOnce Designs Facebook page by clicking HERE.

If you are local, Robinson said you can pick up the masks from her.
