Needle Felt Classes & Workshops

COVID-19 (coronavirus) and my workshops – update April 1, 2020

I want to share an update on my response to the global concerns surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health, safety and well-being of my students is my top priority.

On March 30, the Ontario Government has ordered the closure of all non-essential workplaces in Ontario for a minimum of 14 days starting on March 31, 2020. This means all workshops scheduled for Spring 2020 are officially postponed or canceled. If you are signed up for any of my workshops during this time, the location will contact you to discuss their next steps regarding the workshop you registered for.

I will continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide updates daily. For more information on the virus and other important details, please visit the Government of Canada Public Health website.

Thank you, Cathy
