ABANA was formed in 1973 and helped to spark the resurgence of blacksmithing in America. Over the last 40 plus years we have grown to over 4000 members. We are researching why our current members choose to become a part of ABANA. We are especially interested in hearing from our long time members, those that have mastered the skills of blacksmithing; and those members that are still learning the basic skills of blacksmithing. We'd also like to hear from those that are currently not members but are considering joining or may have decided not to join.
