The 2016 Early American Industries Association Annual Meeting was held at Pleasant Hill Shaker Village near Harrodsburg, Kentucky.  150 EAIA members registered for the meeting and despite some rain, everyone had a good time, including EAIA President Pat Lasswell and EAIA Executive Director John Verrill (see above!).  We stayed in restored Shaker buildings, ate delicious food, explored the wonderful exhibits, went behind the scenes in the collections area, and learned some new skills in the Shaker Hand-held Broom , Shaker Herb Bundle, and the Shaker Spirit Drawing Workshops. We increased our understanding of the Shaker way of life and worship.  The displays were outstanding and our banquet and Silent auction were a great way to end the meeting.  Enjoy the pictures that follow.  Although not everyone in every picture is identified, look and see if you can find yourself in one of the pictures if you were there!  We look forward to another great Annual Meeting at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts next year on May 17th thru May 20th, 2017.  Come join in the fun!

  1. Had a wonderful time at Pleasant Hill. A great chance to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. I especially want to thank John Verrill, Paul Van Pernis, and the assembled membership for making me feel so welcome at my first EAIA meet. For those of you who belong but don’t attend, you ‘must’ make it a point to get out to a regional or national meet. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this event possible.
