We have welcomed our 400th member. She lives in Northwest USA and is interested in all aspects of braiding. As always we welcome new members to the Society. For you membership, you receive four newsletters a year as well as our journal, Strands. In addition, if you are a full member, you can get involved in braiding swaps and exhibitions. Anyone, members or otherwise can attend any Braid Society days or meet us at shows where we are demonstrating.
