Don’t Hate Me

Duke Mask

I was asked last week if I had Duke fabric to make masks. I have been unable to procure any Blue Devil-themed cloth throughout my time of mask making. Thinking creatively, I figured I could come up with something embroidered that might even be better. I hope my patient will LOVE her mask.

As a UNC fan, we are taught to hate Duke but I just cannot bring myself to do this. Especially if Duke fans are willing to help me with my cause to raise money for charity!! Don’t worry, Tar Heel fans, each Duke mask is made with lots of Carolina love 🙂

My goal for 2021 is to raise $5000 each for St Jude’s Hospital and Shriner’s Hospital for Children. My heart has been heavy as I read report after report of the increase in depression, anxiety, and suicide amongst children aged 24 and younger due to COVID lockdowns and school closures. So my goal for Stitches by Mrs. Funk for 2021 is focused on organizations helping children. I will continue to donate my time and materials and every dollar from your purchase is donated to charity.

My Etsy site became more time and money than practical. Our waiting room is filled with different items. Masks galore, aprons, tea towels, oven mitts, etc. Feel free to stop by to shop or email with requests. I am beyond grateful for the success you each have afforded me. We have been able to donate almost $44k since April of 2020.
