Arizona military wife makes, donates masks with Soldiers’ Angels
April 16, 2020
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Three weeks ago, a Valley woman sat down with her mom and a sewing machine to learn to sew, all so she could make masks for local active and veteran military members.
“I find joy in learning and doing new things for people,” said Megan Edwards about sewing masks for the military.
It takes countless hours of sewing and yards of fabric and elastic to make these masks. Edwards sometimes finds herself using 15 yards of fabric and 8 yards of elastic.
“Cutting fabric and putting the elastic through the material — so yeah, it’s a lot of material,” she said. “I work full-time from home right now. So, it’s jumping on during my breaks and before and after work to do it.”
