Regional Chapters of the American Marquetry Society
The American Marquetry Society is currently comprised of several regional Chapters scattered across the United States. All together we strive to promote an open and friendly atmosphere and encourage membership to our local and national groups for anyone interested in marquetry. While the majority of our members live in the United States, several come from a variety of other countries from around the world including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan.
