The fifteenth biennial gathering of wooden jigsaw puzzle designers, cutters, collectors, restorers, and enthusiasts, will take place in historic Sturbridge, Massachusetts July 24-26, 2020. The program is guaranteed to be filled with presentations and activities covering the full range of jigsaw puzzle topics. Old favorites such as the Puzzle Exchange, Best in Show, Cutters' Round Table, evening puzzling, benefit raffle, and opportunities to purchase puzzles old and new will be offered.

Also in the planning is a puzzle assembly contest pitting teams of 3 against each other for bragging rights to who assembles puzzles the fastest. These will be new, identical, never-before-seen puzzles.

On the possible list of activities and presentations are:

  • Hands-on puzzle cutting workshops
  • How to hang a wooden jigsaw puzzle
  • Puzzle rental and lending businesses
  • Laser cutting and etching on acrylics
  • Advertising puzzles of the past
  • New and Emerging technologies in puzzle crafting

And finally, we are looking to end our Parley with an Open House visit to a local collector.

Check back as we move forward. Registration is scheduled to begin March 1st, 2020.
