For years, Turner scoured the country for the fabric and finally found it. When the pandemic began, she started using the material to make masks.
“It’s mind blowing to me quite honestly,” she said. “I put it up on my Facebook page just to see. I have a Debbie Turner Marta from Sound of Music Facebook page and it took off. I think I had like 15,000 hits in a day.”READ MORE: Walter Mondale, Minnesota Native And Former Vice President, Dies At 93
