Promoting the Hobby with 'Stamp Collecting 101'

The American Philatelic Society (APS) has put together a guide to organizing and presenting an adult workshop where attendees can  learn about stamp collecting.

Called "Stamp Collecting 101", some of the topics the workshop covers include...
  • How to get started
  • Where to find stamps
  • When to soak stamps (and when not to soak)
  • How to safely store collectibles
  • How to use catalogs and reference materials
  • How to use the necessary tools of the hobby
  • How to identify worldwide stamps
With National Stamp Collecting Month coming up in October, this would be a great community event for local stamp clubs and others who want to promote the hobby.
