NATURALLY SUSAN'S PARLOUR:


For our care givers...

For

Dear NS Fans:

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. As the weekend approaches, we’ll be enjoying some quality self-care time and we hope you will be as well.

Like many, we're finding our way forward. There were many occasions when we were consumed by the news as we tried to fully comprehend our current situation.

We became increasingly concerned when some of our colleagues shared their experiences on the front lines and we felt helpless since we’re not trained to provide the medical services that they provide. We didn’t know what we could do. Yet, as we listened…we realized something. We realized that there was some thing that we could do to help.

So, as our lives were suddenly turned upside down, we focused on helping our front-line workers who are caring for all of us. We paused our lives, got a new Brother sewing machine (our old one was missing parts), received some beautiful baby blue mermaid fabric donated from Birch Fabrics, learned about sewing materials and patterns from Deaconess Health, The New York Sewing Center, and multiple Youtube, and coordinated a team of talented artisans.

We hadn't sewn in years, yet with every mask that we made, things began to fall into place. And, within three weeks,our artisan team has shipped more than 1,000 fabric face masks and we're making more. We've provided our masks to hospitals, shelters, and assisted living facilities as local as Long Island City and the Bronx to as far as upstate New York. We're self-funding our initiative and with a few material donations, we’ll continue making masks for caregivers for as long as possible during these challenging times.

To our NS Fans…we're deeply grateful for your continued support and for helping to spread the word about our business and initiatives. Our heartfelt thanks to all the first responders, doctors, nurses, and essential workers for helping to keep us all going!

We realize we’re very much connected in this world that we live in. And, we’re finding a way to get through this together. We wish you a wonderful weekend.

With love and gratitude,

~ Susan
