With Canada’s top health official now saying non-medical masks can help stop the spread of COVID-19, Louise Hudson is busy using her skills as a former clothing designer to make homemade masks for free for essential service workers and $5 for everyone else.

I spoke with Louise about her Mask AID Canmore project and her hopes of uniting other home-based mask-makers to form a collective.

You can email Louise if you would like to request a mask or would like to put your sewing skills to work with a collective effort.
