sewing sleeves into Hospital gowns
Sewing Sleeves into Hospital Gowns

Ursula Matrosovs and her daughter Andrea have been very busy sewing sleeves into hospital gowns the past few weeks! They were able to complete 50 gowns to help in the fight against COVID-19.
When asked why they wanted to help their answer was simple, "My dad is in Errinrung and these are the photos we took to share with him. We welcome this way to help our local hospital. It keeps our minds off not being able to visit my Dad who was admitted on the first day of the lockdown in March. We are happy to put our sewing skills to use for the cause!
