SOUTHWEST TOOL COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION Membership Information

The Southwest Tool Collectors Association (SWTCA) is a Not-for-Profit group of men and women with a common interest in collecting, trading and studying antique tools. Organized in 1975, we currently have over 400 members, generally concentrated in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Many of our members are also members of other clubs, including the Early American Industries Association (EAIA), Midwest Tool Collectors (MWTCA) and the Rocky Mountain Tool Collectors (RMTC). We have members from all over the United States.

Meetings sponsored by the Association are held twice a year, once each in the spring and fall. For two days, members get together to buy, sell, trade, and display their collections. Individual members make presentations or demonstrations of various subjects ranging from the use, restoration, or reproduction of a specific tool, to estate planning. In addition, several meetings are sponsored each year by local area members, with the support of the Association. These local meetings are becoming increasingly popular among members.

SWTCA tries to provide activities and services of interest and benefit to itsí members. In addition to meetings, the club publishes a quarterly newsletter. This newsletter covers club activities and services, ads of tools wanted and for sale, and notices of upcoming meetings (including those of the other clubs previously mentioned). The club also provides limited services to survivors of club members in the disposal of membersí collections. This assistance may include non-professional advice, appraisal and referral to appropriate dealers or institutions.
