I have decided with the recent pandemic that I would publish a special edition of the Blind Post to go out before Easter, April 12. This edition will feature 75 words or less notices at no cost. If you know of any announcements to the blind community such as conference calls, online chat venues, or resources, please email them to
before April third to be included. I am doing fine and taking good care sheltering at home. For all my writers, please send uplifting articles for this special issue. We all need some good information including any fun and joyful news. I want you all to know that I pray for you as a group and know we will get through this challenging time. Please be safe and stay well.

Have you ever wanted to post a time sensitive announcement or several notices before the next month’s Blind Post classified news edition?
Now you can. If you have ads or announcements that are time sensitive, or just have several items, then you can include them in a special Blind Post Extra Extra edition. The word count costs are the same as the monthly news, but not free notices. This works best when you might have more than one item for sale, notice for an event, or a special class or training that is of interest to the blind and low vision community.
It will go out to all Blind Post subscribers within one day of approval, and will also be posted to the website.
your submissions and I will let you know if it is suitable and what the cost is.
Extra Extra notices and Sponsors Of the month
Greg's No Sew Face Mask
By Greg Capps
1. The CDC is now advising all Americans to wear a cloth face mask whenever outside your home. You can make your own quite inexpensively. The recommendations I am seeing online say that you should use a cotton fabric that when held with two thicknesses of the fabric held together, you cannot see through it. The suggestion was given of an old pillow case (not worn threadbare). My mask exceeds this standard. Furthermore, it is cheap to have several so that you can use a different one for every day and just throw them in the laundry with all of your other clothing.
2. Take a standard bandanna (approximately 20 inches square) and lay it on a table so that a corner is at the top, bottom, left, and right.
3. Bring together the top and bottom points so that you have a triangle and smooth it out. You now have a point at left, right, and at the bottom.
4. Take the bottom point and fold it up until about an inch is above the top fold. Smooth out the fabric.
5. Turn the little triangle that extended over the top fold down behind and turn the entire mask over so that you have better access to that little triangle.
6. With a safety pin, pin the small triangle to the middle section of the bandanna so that it doesn't show all the way through on the front but holds the little triangle point in place. This is all that is needed to keep your face mask from falling apart! Because you folded the bandanna in half initially, and then folded the bottom up, your breathing area now actually has 4 layers of soft cotton fabric.
7. Turn your face mask so that the safety pin is toward you and at the bottom. Take the two ends (left and right points) and tie them in a simple knot at the back of your neck.
8. Wear your new bandanna face mask with confidence that it looks good, is neat, quick and simple to make, and will protect you from any droplets. If your bandanna happens to be new and stiff from the factory, put it through the laundry a couple times and it will become very soft and comfortable to your skin. And, don't forget to continue your social distancing.
Stay well and be safe.
