March 19, 2020 – The homemade production of protective masks on Hvar has begun! And Udruga TRIM is looking for volunteers with sewing skills to increase production. 

One of the positive things to observe in this time of great crisis is the sense of solidarity and community, as people come together for the common good. Croatians always come together in times of adversity, and that sense of community is one of the best things about living here. People are helping in the ways that they are able and know how, and one such example are the fabulous ladies from Udruga TRIM in Vrboska, whose activities preserving the traditions of the island have been a valuable addition to Hvar’s cultural life. 

And creativity is one of the many things on display with the ladies from TRIM, who have stepped up at this troubled time to develop a line of protective masks for the health volunteers and professionals of the island.

I love the lavender touch, protective masks from the lavender island. 

The TRIM team have developed prototypes of the protective masks, which are 100% cotton, and they are looking for volunteers with sewing skills (and a machine) to produce masks for the health workers. 

The local Red Cross is about to start an operation on the island, I understand, where they will be tending to the needs of the old and infirm with house to house visits, so the production of the protective masks is quite urgent.

If you have a little time and better sewing skills than I possess, and you would like to get involved, the ladies at TRIM would love to hear from you. My understanding is that the sewing process is not difficult and the procedure quite straightforward, but to find out more from the ladies themselves, you can contact them through their Facebook page.

Every little helps. Stay safe.
