For everyone including us, I think May has been a very disruptive month of trying to establish what “the new normal” is.  For the Dresden Star Elves this means that our next ornament listing will have to be delayed for another month.

We've all been thrown off; our small community is slowly coming back to life as restrictions are gradually lifted. In April, I (Gail) started helping out by making soft, comfy, formfitting, AND breathable masks for people. I offered one to my local doc. She adored her mask and soon afterwards contacted me, explaining that her medical clinic was in short supply and desperately needed more. We got busy and started sewing masks for them. This turned into sewing comfy well-fitting face coverings for many folks in our town who are required to wear masks and work long shifts - like our postman, pharmacist, and many family-owned businesses. These are people we hold dear to our hearts. This led to sewing masks for family and friends also, including my niece who asked me to make child-size and toddler-size ones for her three kids.

We desperately want to get back to doing what we love most - making ornaments - as soon as possible. We also want a way to share this mask design with people beyond our own local town. After lots of brainstorming, the Elves decided on pre-cut fabric sewing kits, so people can make masks for their own families, loved ones, and front-line workers in their communities. We want to reassure you that we love making ornaments and Dresden Star isn't going anywhere!  Hopefully by the end of June we’ll have a special category on our website with fun and colorful pre-cut fabric ready-to-sew mask kits. Then we can get back to focusing on ornaments later in the summer. We promise to keep you posted! Thanks for your patience and understanding; in the meantime be safe and God bless you.

Please keep in mind that we make ornaments in all subjects, including Christmas, Animals, Pets, Fairies, Fantasy, Nature, Patriotic as well as for other Holidays (Easter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day).
