Grace Tailoring making masks

She started to make masks for her family, then other families. Now Grace Lee, of Grace Tailoring in Chadds Ford, is selling the face masks at her shop. The masks, which sell for $10, are made of cotton, are washable, have nose wires, and a pocket for inserting a filter.

According to Angie Lee, Grace Lee's daughter, her mother started making the masks last Thursday, April 16 and will continue making the masks as long as the supplies last or for as long as people need them in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. She's selling the masks for $10.

As a dry cleaner, the state considers the shop as essential so it can remain open for business, drop off and pick up only with no tailoring currently being done. Shop hours are shorter than usual, though. Grace Tailoring, at 1410 Baltimore Pike — Route 1 at Heyburn Road — is now open from 10 4 p.m. Call 610-459-9500 to check on availability.
