Can you make scrubs bags for nurses etc?

Message from Carolyn Coles, Sunnybox Lane, Slindon

Can you help with making scrubs bags for nurses and carers?  All is explained below:

A very big thank you to all the sewing machinists in Slindon and beyond who have to date made 250 cotton bags into which nurses and carers can deposit used scrubs before going to the laundry.  (In fact carers working in the community use the bags to take their scrubs home to be washed.)

For those who are still keen and able we would love more scrub bags please as the demand continues to be high, especially in community care homes and hospices.

The draw string bags need to be made of cotton or polyester/cotton to withstand 60 degree washing temperatures.  The finished size is 14″ width x 17″ length but do add 2″inches to the length when cutting the fabric to make a folded seam at the top into which cord can be inserted. 

I have been donated several bags of duvet covers and pillow cases for converting into bags so if you have run out of material or would like material to join in this effort I can deliver to your door – call me Carolyn Coles on 814608.  Once finished please phone for collection or leave on Mary Moor’s doorstep in School Hill, telephone 814227.

If you are not able to sew but can supply suitable fabric it would be very welcome

So far the response has been amazing and sadly the demand is still strong.  Keep well everyone.
