The Kewaunee Artisan Center is encouraging crafters to use their sewing machines to save lives. Bellin Hospital reached out to Kewaunee Artisan Center President Cheryl Daul about making homemade face masks for nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak. There has been a shortage of facemasks since the United States began reporting cases of the coronavirus earlier this month. With many of its crafters encouraged to stay at home in the name of health and safety, Daul says this is a great opportunity for their handiwork to go to good use.
