People often ask "How can I learn more?" or "Where can I find irons and trivets for my collection?" The answer is: in the company of other collectors.

Our members range from novice to expert. At regional and annual meetings we gather together in friendship to share information and to buy, sell & trade. Our pre-convention auctions are another great way to add interesting pieces to a growing collection.

There are many benefits to becoming a member of an organization as long established and well respected as PITCA:

1. Meet and network with other collectors around the USA and world.
2. Learn more about irons, trivets and other laundry collectibles.
3. Protect your investment while promoting your hobby.
4. Gain access to the Members Only area of the PITCA website.
5. Receive the Pressing News 4x a year.
6. Place a Classified Ad in the Pressing News (no charge to members).
7. Borrow items by mail from the extensive PITCA Lending Library.
8. Have the opportunity to attend regional PITCA group meetings.
9. Be notified of upcoming auctions and private sales.
