Join Us For A Learning Experience!

Twenty-four families at Owatonna, Minnesota originally founded this group in 1984 as the Midwest Sad Iron Collectors Club. Over the years our group grew in size and scope. At the Kansas City Convention in 2008 we voted to update our name to PITCA, reflecting the diversity of our membership.

Today we have over 325 members in 40 states plus Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and The Netherlands. Although the majority of members attending meetings reside in the United States, each year we welcome a few who travel from around the world to attend our Annual Convention!
