    Braids 2019 - the emails about the conference with your workshop allocations are being sent out, however there is one additional factor to consider.  
    The conference ends at the start of the annual Iga Tenjin festival so if you want to stay for an extra night to enjoy the festival on Saturday 19th Oct 2019, please email BEFORE 19th Oct 2018 to ask for a reservation for the extra night.   If you are not sure of your travel arrangements, I suggest you book a room and cancel it later.    After 19th Oct 2018, you will not be able to book a room for the 19th Oct 2019 because the city gets fully booked.

    The notice for renewal until 1 Nov 2019 has been sent out.   The email incorrectly states that your membership runs out on 31 Oct 2017.   This should have read 31 Oct 2018.

    Following a number of challenges with the Yahoo group, Braids and Bands, the Council took the decision to move the group to a different hosting site,   The transfer to has been initiated and all new members should join rather than Yahoo.

    In addition to the group on, we have two groups on Facebook, Braids and Bands and Braid Society Members to try to ensure that we communicate to as wide an audience as possible.
