Sticking to the theme of mascs, youtube and Facebook are my only sources, especially 1 group of amateur and professional sewers. The second link I am going to share is the map for the whole country where people can both offer and demand mascs and agree on sewing for themselves and their families - either for free or for little money.

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

My mascs are getting more professional and I am getting faster. The second link is helping me to distribute my mascs to people around so that we donť have to travel. Tipically, I end with sewing by midnight, take my mask, and walk around with paper bags full of mascs putting them in peoples mailboxes.
