As of July 2021, there still isn't much to report regarding in-person events. Covid-19 is still holding us all with one foot nailed to the ground, but with vaccines now available, we live in hope for the future.
However, both the Braid Society and The American Kumihimo Socciety (AKS) have been organising online classes with Zoom meetings to back them up. What is more, once we technophobes get over ourselves, it actually proves to be a flexible and efficient way to learn. The sessions are recorded so that students can repeat tricky sequences again and again - not always possible with a "real" class.
