Helping the Valdosta community

Grecian Needle received the 2020 Valdosta’s Best Dressmaker Award

From mid March to mid June 2020, I had the opportunity to work my library cataloging job from home. Also, my supervisor was kind enough to let me volunteer my sewing skills to our Valdosta community during the Covid-19 crisis. So, I donated handmade goodies, and one business cleaning service to local businesses worth over $1,308. In detail, I sewed:

  • 62 face masks valued at $558
  • 5 surgical gowns valued at $350
  • 1 leather jacket lining replacement valued at $60
  • 4 upholstered boat cushions valued at $240
  • 1 business cleaning valued at $100

I sewed face masks including a HEPA filter, and surgical gowns for the following local businesses:

  • Dr. Patrick Powell Dental office
  • Maranatha Medical Clinic
  • Mindful Massage and Bodywork
  • Lighthouse Baptist Church
  • South Georgia Medical Center
