ATTC Quarantine Toolkit

Social Distancing does NOT equal Social Isolation

The ATTC Quarantine Toolkit is like any other toolkit; you will find things you use frequently and others that you never use. Please take what works for you, share whatever you find helpful and leave the rest. 

We are adding new activities and websites to the Quarantine Toolkit all the time, so check back often for updates. 

We would LOVE your input on activities and online sites that have been helpful to you during this time of Social Distancing; please email us at:

SEWING PROJECT – FACE MASKS

Face masks are needed by Home Health Care Workers, that provide support to seniors, the disabled and those with chronic health conditions, as all medical grade supplies are being diverted to hospitals and first responders during the COVID crisis. The efforts of our Home Health Care providers benefit all of us by keeping their clients, healthy, in their own homes and out of the hospital system.

We are using this pattern from Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, it includes instructions and a list of materials/tools needed.

Helpful tips:

  • This pattern calls for two layers of fabric, if possible. consider adding an additional layer or 2 (no more than 4 layers total) for added protection.
  • Use different colors for front and back for easy identification.
  • 100% cotton is the preferred material (see attached list) so masks can be washed and sanitized when needed.
  • Elastic can be substituted for the straps if you prefer. 

Additional patterns, videos/tutorials are available at Joann Fabric and some of their stores have kits with supplies to make masks; use this Joann Fabric Store Locator to find the one closet to you.

If you can sew and are looking for a way to have a positive impact at this time, please consider, making face masks. You would be donating your time, making the masks and treasure by donating the supplies needed to do so. At the Table Colorado is a registered 501(c)3, so if you donate your masks through Table, we can provide a tax receipt for your in-kind donation. Please email us for details at: attc@atthetablecolorado.org
