I fully understand that as the current economic situation continues to challenge all of us, we are faced with difficult choices in our spending habits.  I can't stress enough how much ABANA depends upon retaining members and expanding our blacksmithing family to be able to preserve and promote  the art of blacksmithing.  In return, ABANA provides education, including scholarships, a network between it's members and the Affiliate organizations, and, in cooperation with the blacksmith vendors advertising in our magazines,  a Members Only discount program.   


Renew now and you will continue receive the


Anvil's Ring and Hammer's Blow Magazines 


You can save more than the cost of your membership through the use of the


ABANA Members Only Discount Program


The ABANA Members Only Discount Program is a great member benefit where  you can save 5%, 10%, or even more on products you already purchase. Click on the link above to find out more about this benefit of membership.  We continue to expand this program and have added several vendors in the last year.



ABANA is proud to announce that we have made arrangements through Transamerica and Ameritas for insurance plans:


ABANA Members Insurance Program 


ABANA presents these member benefits as a service. As with any product you should ask questions and be clear with the Insurance provider as to what is covered and what is not.

Please add ABANA to your annual gifting portfolio!


You can make a donation when you renew by selecting the preferred donation category and filling in the amount you wish to contribute.


Here are the 5 specific funds you can choose from:


ABANA General Fund:

This is the all-purpose operating account of ABANA. In addition to the Central Office and the Publications, this fund takes care of enhancing the web site, creating the Bealer award, paying for postage and all the little things it takes to keep the organization functioning.


2012 Conference Seed Money:

This fund is earmarked to help set up the 2012 ABANA Conference in Rapid City, South Dakota. Conferences are expensive complicated things to run and it really helps a lot to have some cash on hand early for deposits and planning and a thousand other things.


ABANA Scholarships and Grants:

For many years ABANA has given scholarships to promising blacksmiths to help them take courses or gain key experiences. Also ABANA helps Affiliates to fund demonstrators at their meetings. This fund contributes to these and related causes.


ABANA Exhibition Fund:

One of ABANA's missions is to increase the awareness of the

craft of blacksmithing among the general public. This fund helps to produce and deploy public exhibitions.


National Ornamental Metal Museum Library Fund:

The Library at the Metal Museum in Memphis is a unique resource to those who study the art and craft of blacksmiths and related metal artisans. The ABANA archives are housed within this library, this fund helps with the expenses of that worthy cause
