Tips & Feedback For Sewers

1. Hello From Dr. Manice

Feedback From Dr. Nick Manice, New York Presbyterian Hospital

2. Info About N95 Masks

There are many different versions of N95 masks and Dr. M demonstrates them

3. Elastic vs. Ribbons

1. Thick elastic is very uncomfortable and can create sores behind the ears. Thin elastic (1/8" and thinner is better)

2. Dr. M. suggests ribbons or ties so the mask can be fastened at the back of the head

4. Pleats/Tucks

wider tucks/pleats are better 

Suggestion - leave 1” AT TOP & BOTTOM, then 1/2” pleats/TUCKS

Stick with the 8" x 11" FABRIC size
