Coping with the Pandemic

Rhonda Pierce
Nobody is weathering the pandemic storm better than people that sew. We know how to make the best of situations. We certainly stepped up to serve our families & communities with masks. In addition to making masks, our own Rhonda Pierce, SCHMETZ Spokesperson, was inspired to finish UFO’s (unfinished objects) that seasoned up to 17 years. On SCHMETZneedles Facebook LIVE, on Wednesdays during May & June, she shared multiple newly completed projects. That led us to wonder how other industry professionals are using this unusual gift of time. Emails were sent to 24 sewing celebrities asking for a snapshot of how they spent their time. Were they sewing, resting, crafting, cooking? Everyone was asked to submit one pic with a paragraph (or two, or three, or more) describing their pandemic time. Fourteen responses were received. Their responses were compiled into SCHMETZ Inspired to Sew #79. Luckily, everyone is healthy. Over the next 14 weeks, you will enjoy reading the responses as their dedication to our industry thrives.
