CW Seminars has been cancelled

A message from Seminars 2020 Co-Chairs Cathie Chung and Diane Smith:

“2020 has been a roller coaster year so far. We hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

“Planning Seminars 2020 has been quite the challenge. Seminars is an exciting part of Complex Weavers, and that excitement helped keep our planning focused and on track despite significant obstacles. However, making sure we can all stay healthy is our highest concern, and we have concluded that we must do the responsible thing.

“It is with mixed emotions we are cancelling Seminars 2020. We will miss seeing everyone and exchanging ideas.

“The volunteer efforts that went into planning Seminars 2020 are appreciated more than we can say. As with everything in our organization, the tasks required to create our conference were generously handled by volunteers. In addition, as we navigated the many challenges that came our way, everyone involved responded with patience and understanding, for which we are grateful. Thank you.”
