Annual Conference



Amazing Classes


Select from a menu of fabulous classes taught by world renowned instructors. Teachers pay their own travel and lodge and only earn a small stipend to keep the registration costs minimal.


Archive Room


The extensive collection of historic specimens comes out of the salt mines and travels to be admired and studied. Do not pass up the opportunity to spend some hours browsing the documents, taking pictures for later study and discovering new treasures up close.


Evening Activities


Keynote speakers, Round Robin Demonstrations, Silent Auction, Member Show and Tell, Evening With the Masters... every evening after dinner, there is even more to do!




Study Room


One ballroom stays open all night long. Dubbed "IAMPETH After Dark," you'll find people sharing supplies, teaching each other new tidbits, eating late night pizza, and building friendships.

Mark your calendars!
