Two years ago, Gina Barrett could be found making a specially designed dress for the character Esmerelda in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

Today, Barrett, who has a degree in fashion design, has switched her sewing machine skills to making masks for nurses. When she found out first responders were running out of masks, she wanted to do something to help.
