Grandpa came up with the idea. He’d heard the message that Michael Garron Hospital was asking Torontonians to sew non-surgical masks to help protect the community.
Demaras had rolls of fabric in his workshop, and the instructions for how to sew masks were readily available online here and here. The next step was getting Michelle, Daniel and Chris to work cutting, folding and stitching.
