2018 International Iroquois Beadwork Conference
Eastern Door Exuberance

General Information

The workshop is almost full. Register now!

The period for the discounted online registration has expired.

The deadline for Comfort Inn registrations is Friday, August 17.

The deadline for all registrations is midnight Saturday, September 1.

If you registered online and haven't paid, please contact us at iibc@otsiningo.com to make arrangements for payment. If the workshop fills up, unpaid registrants will be replaced by paid registrants.

A few people are having a problem with credit card payments for online registration.

Credit cards require providing the zip code for the billing address. Cards with a Canadian address do not have a US zip code. Try entering 00000 (five zeroes). This has been reported to work.

If you want to retry a credit card payment, go directly to the store. No need to reenter the registration form.

Conference Dates

September 14, 15, and 16, 2018

Conference Location

Kanatakon Recreation, 21 Park Street, Akwesasne, Quebec

Conference Hotel

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Comfort Inn and Suites  in Hogansburg NY.

The room block will be held until August 17.

There are no conference activities scheduled to take place at the hotel.

Border Crossing

Both the Comfort Inn and Suites and Kanatakon Recreation are on the Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, so no border crossing is necessary when travelling between the hotel and the conference events.


The deadline for registration is September 1.

The registration fee will remain at $100 US. A discounted fee of $90 US is available for online registrations made by August 15.

Space is limited. Only the first 50 registrants can be guaranteed a place in the workshop. Register early to assure your place. Later registrants may participate in all the other conference activities. No registrations will be accepted after September 1.

Online registration with payment by credit card is available. We recommend this option if you don't have access to a US bank.

Conference Activities

Our workshop on making a early Mohawk style pincushion begins Friday evening at Kanatakon Recreation.

Saturday program includes presentations, competitions, sales, silent auction, lunch, and dinner.

On Sunday morning the workshop and good times continue. Lunch will be provided.
