Iain Abernethy Seminar 2017

We are so excited to announce the 2017 Iain Abernethy Seminar. The event will be Friday-Saturday  September 8th, 9th, and 10th.  This year Iain will be teaching all new material that he has never taught in the U.S. before.  We have had so much fun planning an exciting weekend for seminar participants and their families. Training will be held at East Franklin Elementary and lodging and a Saturday night BBQ will be held at Cat Creek Lodge in Franklin.

This year we invite you to bring your whole family for a relaxing retreat weekend.  We have several family activities planned while participants are training with Iain. There will be a gem mining excursion and a morning Pilates class on Saturday and of course everyone is invited to Friday night finger foods and a Saturday night BBQ.

We have priced all options a la carte to fit your budget and create the perfect weekend.
