Greetings Wes!

I have at least one 1/4 inch roll of elastic I can send. Please shoot me an e-mail and I can get it in the mail no later than Monday!

My role is fabric sewing elastic.  I could send a few feet by mail.  Just where?

Aren't the Estes shock cords just rubber, rather than fabric sewing elastic? If those would work I have a bag of them we have replaced at workshops.

I think that the 1/8 will be fine.  Osj thought it might be a bit small... but my thinking is that anything that works will work.  She's worried that if people are wearing them all day that it might feel uncomfortable.  But again, what works will work.  And it beats a respirator no matter what!!!

If your wife can use 1/8th inch elastic., I have some pre cut Estes shock cords. I will see how many I can dig up, some of them are 1/4 inch.

Subject: [cia-rocketry] Elastic for Masks

Hello everyone,

My Wife works for Courage Connection, the Champaign-Urbana domestic violence shelter.  They have someone making masks for them but they are short on elastic.  Osj (my wife) checked the local hobby craft stores and haberdasheries but can't find any.  We raided a little bit from my rocket supplies.

If anyone has any elastic ribbon or rubber that they would be willing to share it would help them out a lot. Let me know.

All the best,
