The early pandemic was chaos. Masks and other PPE were scarce. Cindi Rang and her daughter Brianna Motzkus own a quilting shop in Ephrata. They sprang into action and started making masks. In this edition of StoryCorps Northwest, they talk about how quickly things moved in the first few weeks of the pandemic.

This episode of StoryCorps Northwest was recorded in Soap Lake as part of Northwest Public Broadcasting’s centennial celebration.
