IAMPETH CONFERENCE FAQs: Common Misconceptions

1) Is it true that the IAMPETH Convention is only for intermediate to advanced calligraphers?

Answer) No, the IAMPETH Convention is for anyone interested in the calligraphic arts from the Novice through the Advanced student. I went to my first IAMPETH Convention in 1999 as a Novice. The experience was transformative for me. 

2) Is it true that IAMPETH Conventions are only for pointed pen calligraphy?

Answer) Definitely not true. While IAMPETH is home to some of the finest pointed pen artists, the full scope of the calligraphic arts is represented.

3) I don’t own enough supplies; can I still attend the Convention.

Answer) Yes. John Neal Bookstore will be at the Convention this year. You can purchase what you need from him. 

4) How much does it cost to attend an IAMPETH Convention?

The Facts:
-The Convention registration fee (including a year’s Membership dues) ranges from $265 - $285 USD for ALL classes. 
-The Monday Night Reception is included in the Registration price; additional guest is $55.
-The Saturday Night Banquet costs $55 per person. 
-The hotel is the Hilton Milwaukee City Center with a room rate of $132 (plus tax) per night. Share your room and cut that cost in half! Roommates can be found in the first posting on the IAMPETH Forum. 
-Transportation and food are not included.
