Help protect yourself and others when you have to go out in public.

How to Make a Mask

What you will need:

  • Cotton Fabric, any color or print

You can Make Two Sizes: Adult or Child

  2. Starting at the center of the bottom edge, sew to the first corner, stop. Sew the elastic with the edge out into the corner. A few stiches forward and back will hold this.
  3. Sew to the next corner, stop, and bring the other end of the same elastic to the corner and sew few stiches forward and back.
  4. Now sew across that top of the mask to the next corner. Again put an elastic with the edge out.
  5. Sew to the next corner and sew in the other end of the same elastic.
  6. Sew across the bottom leaving about 1.5” to 2” open. Stop, cut the thread. Turn inside out.
  7. Pin 3 tucks on each side of the mask. Make sure the tucks are the same direction.
  8. Sew around the edge of the mask twice.

The Field Goods Story

Field Goods is a rapidly growing company in the position to reinvent food distribution. Located in Athens, NY, a small Hudson River town in Greene County, our company was started in 2011 with an old station wagon, two employees, and 60 customers. We’ve now grown to service eastern New York State, including the New York metro area, western CT and MA, and northern NJ.

Our distribution model provides numerous benefits to the community while reducing food waste and supporting sustainability. Consumers gain convenient access to local produce on a regular basis along with information that motivates them toward a healthier lifestyle. Employers benefit from a wellness program that is truly effective in changing the habits of their employees. Small farmers benefit from selling their unique products to a new market at a fair price, and the environment benefits from drastically reduced emissions!

Field Goods was recognized for its hiring of workers with disabilities, and received grants from Greene County Economic Development, the New York State Capital Region Economic Development Council competition, and the USDA for its work to support agriculture and create jobs in an economically disadvantaged area. Field Goods is a certified New York State Women-Owned business.
