Scrub Bags needed for Health Care Workers

A call out for some help from our members...


In addition to being a quilter, I am also a Registered Nurse. When someone suggested making scrub bags for nurses in one of my quilting groups, I checked it out with the Alberta Healthcare Workers Facebook group of which I am a part. It was very enthusiastically received and we now have multiple healthcare workers wanting one of these bags.

These are washable, drawstring bags that healthcare workers can take their scrubs/uniforms home in so that they can just toss bag and all into the washing machine. This will aid in preventing transmission of the virus. Our goal is to make one for every Alberta Healthcare worker that wants one. In order to achieve this, we need to recruit more sewists, so I'm wondering if you would put it out to your email list?

Please reinforce that they should NOT drop off bags at their local healthcare facility as Alberta Health Services has restricted all non-essential traffic. Instead, we have created a Facebook group where sewists can connect with healthcare workers who have agreed to be the contacts for their respective facilities.


Here's the Facebook group:
(As a note, however, the Facebook group is a private group. When you request to join, you are asked if you are a sewist and/or a health care worker.)


Willow Creek Quilts has made a free pattern available, and we endorse this pattern as it has already been "field tested."

I greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide in this project.


Thanks, Laura Barber
