    Jennie Parry posted a message a few weeks ago about Catherine Martin's interview on BBC Radio 3 essential classics.   This is still available on although I'm not sure if you can access it from outside the UK

    Following on from this, why not purchase Catherine's book on Kumihimo.   It is available from the Braid Society at £7 plus postage and packing

    May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas  and a very Happy New Year

    Registration is now fully open for our exciting conference, Braids 2016 - Braids, Bands and Beyond.   A number of the classes are full but there are still many wonderful classes with space for attendees.   It is an opportunity to meet the best braiders in the world with a wide range of skills.   Further details can be found in the Braids 2016 programme and on the page of Tutors.    There are lots of photos of what the tutors will be teaching.

    Braids 2016 registration has opened for all Braid Society members and the places are filling fast.   To date we have 121 registrations with a limit of 200.    Some of the classes are full so will not show when registering for the conference.

    Some minor changes have been made to the programme for Linda Malan's class and Michael Hattori's biography.   These are in V13 of the programme.
