Threading a Sustainable Future: Sewing TO Women’s Collective

TNO-The Neighbourhood Organization has, for the last few years, been working to kick off a sewing collective. We had been thinking, preparing, and planning. The COVID19 crisis galvanized us into action.
 

Our heartfelt appreciation to the Government of Canada for the contribution we received through the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Local Infrastructure Fund. We greatly appreciate your support in helping us address food insecurity issues in Thorncliffe Park. Through this support, we will be able to invest in capital assets and equipment for the collective production of food related to the establishment of a community food hub in the neighbourhood.

TNO – The Neighbourhood Organization, in collaboration with the Thorncliffe Flemingdon Sustainable Sewing Group, Flemingdon Community Support Services, and local residents, has launched the Community Sewing Face Mask Project (CSFMP) to respond to the challenge by Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) for East Toronto sewists to make 1,000 masks per week. These face masks will go to folks across Toronto to help communities stay healthy. 

We have compiled some resources to help anyone interested in making face masks for this project:
