I don't know about you, but in 2020 I was a one-woman mask factory. I churned out mask after mask after mask and then adjusted my husband's n95 with rubber band straps using cloth elastic for easy re-use. I already had fabric out the wazoo, but my elastic ran out quickly. Once it was finally available, I bought A LOT. Soooo much. And now that n95s and KN95s are recommended and available, my mask factory is closed leaving me with a TON of elastic.
We would much rather be open and see your smiling faces, but alas, we gotta do what we gotta do. Just so very happy it is but once per year, that we are still here and able to do it!
