STUDENTS CURRENTLY IN CLASSES As you are aware, we were directed by the government to social distance as much as possible. Even though we can achieve some physical separation during the classes, there are times when close contact is called for. In order to remain safe I would like to postpone the remaining two classes (one on Friday, one on Saturday March 20, 21, 26, 27) until the end of April. We can resume on April 17 and 18 if the current situation changes.

I hope this is acceptable to you. In case you need some help with your knitting, please contact me either through email or by phone (604-230-0329). Hopefully the measures taken by the government will drastically affect the spread of the virus and we will all be able to return to our usual lives soon. In the meantime stay healthy and enjoy knitting as a calming activity. Warm regards, Edita
