McKENZIE (April 23) — After shutting down for several weeks in the early days of social distancing, one local small business is now open and running at full steam to provide vital equipment to medical workers.
Dilla’s Sewing is producing protective masks and gowns as fast as the small staff can churn them out.
Owner Roberto Padilla told The Banner that as the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent response set in, orders quickly dried up for the products Dilla’s usually produces, such as dance uniforms and seat covers, and he was forced to shut the doors.
He would have liked to have been contributing from the beginning, but he said that acquiring bulk quantities of the necessary materials proved to be impossible.
