Local woman is helping stop the spread, thread by thread

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – One local woman is helping to stop the spread, one ‘thread’ at a time.

Onalaska resident, Amber Pfaff, recently learned to sew, and she’s putting her new skill to the test.

She has a goal to make 500 masks to donate to local shelters and healthcare workers, and she’s already put together more than 200.

Pfaff even created a YouTube tutorial to show people just how easy it is to make them.

She hopes it will inspire others to pull out their pin-cushions too.

“I knew that I had to do something to give back to the community. Since I had a little practice sewing, I figured making the cloth masks was something easy I could do to make my community healthier. So if I can do it, anyone can do it, really!”

She makes youth and adult sizes.

Her tutorial is called Most Efficient Way to Make Masks in Bulk.
