Has anyone ever been to this skete (St. Isaac of Syria in Wisconsin) or know about their mission?

I know they produce reproduction and original icons, that's about all I know.

According to the Orthodoxwiki entry, they used to be under the Bulgarians but Fr. Simeon was deposed in April 2009 by Metropolitan JOSEPH of that diocese for apparent misconduct.  At this time, as Punch has noted, they are on their own w/o antimens.

I have been there. They were/are still under the Bulgarian Patariarchal Church and Metropolitan Joseph. The brotherhood is quite small--maybe down to one monk now. Fr. Symeon is no longer the priest. I'm not sure where he is. He could still be there--as far as I know he owns the land. Their icon business continues, however, and there service for my last order was extremely prompt. For a time, between the time they left ROCOR and went to Bulgaria, the were under a pseudodox bishop.
