Greetings from the Colorado Pen Show!
I arrived last night, and even though the show was just starting to get set up, I saw some lovely people and got a peek at some tantalizing journals, papers, and pens. Cary Yeager from Fountain Pen Day gave me an official FPD pin and bookmark (I’m already collecting swag!) and we had a nice chat about the generosity of the fountain pen community. And it’s true: I have never met a group so welcoming and willing to share knowledge (and ink and pens) with even the newest of newbies.
The Andersons were getting set up. They are also extraordinarily kind people who, at earlier shows, have patiently answered my questions and helped guide me to the right pen, the right ink, and the proper accessories for caring for my writing instruments.
The Show looks to be very exciting this year. For more information, check out the web site and this blog for more posts!
