Annual Meetings

Our annual meetings are usually 3-½ days and provide members with the opportunities to:

  • attend lectures by transferware researchers;

  • exchange information on new discoveries;

  • meet the authors of recent publications;

  • visit important collections which are often not open to the general public, often with guided tours by docents or others with specific knowledge of the collections;

  • attend a transferware-exclusive show and sale, probably the most transferware available for purchase, anywhere, at any one time;

  • win exceptional transferware pieces during a Transferware Raffle (Raffle proceeds benefit the TCC Scholarship Program);

  • attend the annual business meeting, with opportunities to learn more about TCC activities and plans, and elect officers;

  • and have a great time in a relaxed atmosphere with fellow transferware enthusiasts.

Our meetings commonly include bus trips to transferware-related sites and collections which otherwise would not be accessible to our members. We usually enjoy a special "optional day" with even more exciting visits to interesting sites and collections. Past meetings are summarized below.
