About Us

Louise's Sewing Club is a group of DePaul students, staff, and faculty who have access to sewing machines and want to assist with creating PPE supplies for Chicago area health care workers (If you do not have a machine we can supply one). Members of Louise's Sewing Club will have supplies mailed to them, will create PPE supplies such as gowns and face masks, and then will ship materials back for use by Chicago health care workers.

Named in honor of Louise de Marillac, Louise's Sewing Club is a volunteer group coming together to help health care workers.

If sewing is not for you, do not fear.  You can still be involved by donating to the cause.  DePaul has created an inspireDePaul page for PPE funding.  Stop by the page and see what your contribution can do for this great cause! inspireDePaul

Originally formed at DePaul University, the Illinois PPE Network is now comprised of individuals from DePaul, Northwestern University, Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Public Libraries, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Swedish Face Shield Group, the Chicago Peace Fellows, Nation of Makers, and a multitude of Illinois makerspaces, libraries, and other schools.
