NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Like just about everyone else in Southwest Florida longtime tailor can no longer do business as usual.

But he refuses to stop working!

Tony Reale has been doing alterations and other special sewing projects for years out of his cleverly named shop, "Sew It Seams," on Pondella Road in North Fort Myers.

His shop is currently closed to the public because of the pandemic.

So he's now using his skills to sew face masks for everyone on the front lines - hospital workers, nursing home workers and emergency responders.

But he'll also make one for other members of the public for a mere $5 per mask.

You can provide the material for the mask or Tony can use some of his.

If you'd like to order some, give Tony or his wife a call at: (239) 997-9222.
