New Brighton Stitch-O-Mat facilitator Julie Donaldson said she recently stumbled across the mask cure-all in a YouTube video clip and was so impressed she sent the link to fellow facilitator Samantha Fay.
"She made one within a couple of hours and thought it was a brilliant idea," Donaldson said.
"We then both made some and offered them for sale in nearby charity shops.
"They were snapped up and many people said they were life changing, as they stopped their glasses from fogging up when wearing masks."
"It’s been a very popular sewing exercise and there is a lot of interest in making them at each of our sessions,” she said.
Stitch-O-Mat is a community organisation that helps people with their sewing projects.
Facilitators are available on-site for a couple of hours most days, including Sunday, to help people who want to use their facilities or learn how to sew or repair damaged clothing.
Donaldson said Stitch-O-Mat has been in the Surfside Mall at New Brighton since Easter.
They had to move from their original site inside the old New Brighton School, which has been scheduled for demolition to make way for a housing development.
