A friend on the island forwarded an article to me from Forbes Magazine several weeks ago -
I just managed to catch the boat heading for St. Vincent to send our prototype over to our seamstress in St. Vincent and she cleverly adapted the design so the ties just clipped round the ears instead of having to be tied at the back, and she and her assistants got straight to work and made us hundreds of masks.
We have been selling them at cost, with the fabric donated by the Pink House, and "donations Welcome" to go to the 'Covid Fund' held with the Mustique Charitable Trust.
They have been selling like hot cakes, so we decided to make more and send them to some of our supporters around the world.
Whether wearing a face mask is the right thing to do or not has yet to be determined by the world's specialists but surely common sense tells us it can't be a bad idea!
To keep your mask clean, we suggest soaking in boiling water daily or as often as necessary to keep germ free.
I hope the need for a mask to prevent the spread of covid will very soon be over and that your mask will then be useful for cleaning out a dusty cupboard or other more mundane jobs, and that Covid will be far behind us!
With love from Pink House Mustique and our Pink House Seamstresses on mainland St. Vincent.
