Coronavirus Precautions

I want to first say that I hope all of you are healthy and safe. My family is well, we have not shown any signs of sickness and I am grateful for it! Despite this, news reports say that symptoms are not always visible with this virus. 🙁 Due to this I am forced to take precautions for my family’s safety, and as well the safety of you and your children.

The Coronavirus has changed our daily lives in ways that many of us have never experienced in our lifetime. With schools closing; businesses shutting their doors and restrictions on social interaction, things can seem pretty scary. Based on the current news, things could get worse before they ever get better. I feel hopeful that we will all overcome this sooner rather than later.

Due to the seriousness of the Coronavirus, I will not be accepting any appointments or working on any new orders or alterations until further notice. I have also decided to postpone Lil Sewing School to following the FWISD school closings announcement. Lil Sewing School will resume after FWISD resumes. 

So that students don’t get too behind, I will work with parents on scheduling longer class sessions so that they get caught up. I am considering a few 2 hour class sessions if everyone agrees. 

I will keep you posted as things unfold over the coming weeks.

Again, please stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Felicia Ray
