Marnoo's Lois Johnson has taken up the task of making face masks as the demand increased for the homemade product.
The passionate quilter made masks for family and sent them to Melbourne before turning her attention to making masks for those within her community.
The avid quilter said she had struggled to find elastic but managed to get some sent straight to her home town.
"I have enough material I could sew to the end of my lifetime," she said.
"I have vowed and declared I will not buy any more fabric. I'm going to use what I've got.
"I've had to buy some more thread and elastic. I couldn't get any anywhere. I've got more coming sometime - you've just got to be prepared to wait for it.
"Australia Post is doing a wonderful job. I've posted some off to family and it gets them there so quickly."
Mrs Johnson said she had received some interest in her community after making masks for her family.
"People saw them wearing them and had asked if I was making them," she said.
"I am now making them for people to buy.
"It's keeping me really busy. I probably would prefer to be quilting but I guess this is different and it passes the time."
Mrs Johnson said there was still a positive feeling within the Marnoo community, residents not too concerned over current restrictions.
"We are all pretty isolated out here anyway and work well as a community," she said.
"If more product limits are placed on products in shops that is when it could get awkward.
"When you live so far away you don't shop every day. When you are in town you can pop in the next day if they haven't got what you want or if there is a limit on what you can buy.
"We can't - well, we could but it's a long way to go.
"We make do with what we've got. Because we live so far out of town I have a pretty good pantry."
Mrs Johnson said during the first round of restrictions which commenced in March, she never got to a desperate stage in finding items.
"Sometimes you think really? I've travelled more than 50 kilometres to come and do my groceries and there were limits on items," she said.
"One time I could only buy two cans of cat food. I thought to myself the cats aren't going to be happy with that."
