Mask Making

Healthcare Masks Wanted

Calling all crafters! Johnson County is now seeking donated face masks for our community’s healthcare workers, first responders, and other front-line staff working to combat the spread of COVID-19.

While the Library’s buildings have been closed, Makers Angelica and Nick from the Black and Veatch Makerspace in the Central Resource Library have been hard at work sewing masks, and several of our Library staff have since joined in their efforts. If you like to sew and would like to join us from home in assembling masks, our Makers recommend these resources for making masks.

In addition, the County gave this guidance about homemade masks:

  • Pleated masks are better, made with at least two layers of fabric and elastic rather than tied. However, they will take whatever you can make. Elastic may be in short supply.
  • Masks do not need to be pre-washed before being donated.

Completed masks should be dropped off at the Johnson County MED-ACT station, located at 205 E. Flaming Rd. in Olathe, during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Wires

Featured Artist Friday: The WiresThe Wires

The Wires are an original alternative classical music duo comprised of Sascha Groschang on cello and Laurel Parks on violin. Together they surpass expectations of what a string duo can be by incorporating innovative sounds and techniques into their pop song-length compositions and teaching other string players how to do the same. Their first album, The Wires, was released in 2013 and they are currently finishing a follow-up in addition to performing, teaching and other music-related projects. We honored to share an interview with the duo about their unique collaboration. Enjoy!

*

Please introduce yourselves. Where do you live and work?

Sascha Groschang (SG): I live in Hyde Park, in midtown KC.  I teach at Missouri Western State University, and am principal cellist of the Saint Joseph Symphony.  I teach privately, and have a quartet that plays a variety of events with Laurel.  We also both do tons of recording sessions, improv work and freelance jobs all around the area.

Laurel Parks (LP): I live in midtown.  I am a freelance violinist and I also have a home studio.
