  Supporting New England Philately
  [ HOME ]



The Northeastern Federation provides a forum for the dissemination of philatelic information of importance to the New England area. We do this by providing a centralized list of stamp clubs and exhibitions. We also stage Philatelic Show every spring and support a youth program. Club application here. Bylaws listed here.


Philatelic Show is the largest annual show in New England and is part of the World Series of Philately, as defined by the American Philatelic Society.

Philatelic Show 2015 will be held at the Boxborough Holiday Inn in Boxborough, MA on May 1 to 3, 2015. Convening societies will include the Collectors Club of New York and the United States Stamp Society.

On March 9, 2014 the board of directors of the Northeastern Federation of Stamp Clubs donated $1,000 to upcoming World Stamp Show - New York 2016. This decennial international stamp show will be held from May 28 to June 4, 2016 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.


This program is designed to initiate youth to the hobby of stamp collecting, with the objective of increasing their awareness of the many countries of the world, their cultures and history. It is a favorite of home schoolers, as well as in-schoolers. For more information click here.
