Dc Pen Show And A Thanks To Vanness Pens

Posted by Newton Pens , 18 June 2014 · 3,088 views

I’m going to be at the Washington DC Pen Show in August!  Arriving the 7th, at a table the 8th, 9th, and 10th.  I’ve bought tickets and booked a room and everything.  It’s official!
Holy cow I’m nervous.  I’m going to get as much made as I can and bring it all with me.  I’ll also be bringing a few rods with me for show-n-tell.  Is there anything in particular you would like to see?
I’ll be sharing a table with Vanness Pen, working double duty.
Also a huge shout out of thanks to Vanness for donating a Rhodia pad and some inks to one of the kids who got a pen from me a month or so ago.
They donated a huge Rhodia blank pad for the girl who got this pen.  They also donated a couple bottles of ink for scholarship recipients as well.

This was for one of my students when I taught at Centerpoint (my first two years teaching) who always impressed me with her talent and work ethic.  I contacted her current art teacher and was told nothing but good things.  So she got a pen.  When I asked to buy a notebook from Vanness for one of my old students, they GAVE it to me.  Thanks so much for your support of my program and for giving to my kids.  I really really appreciate it.
I also got a couple pics from scholarship recipients over the last couple of days.
One asked for a Shinboi and a bottle of black ink (thanks Vanness!).

Thanks everybody for all you’ve done to support the scholarship and to help get these kids some help with college expenses.
The current raffle is open until June 28th if you want to get in on it.


2015 Newton Pens Scholarship – June Raffle Is Open!

Posted by Newton Pens , 11 June 2014 · 1,859 views

Hope you’re all having a good summer so far.  I’m enjoying all this shop time.  :)
I thought now would be a good time to start raising money again for next year’s scholarships.
We all raised just over $6000 and have helped 6 kids out with $1000 scholarships.  I wish I was better with words, but it means so much to me to be able to help out like this, and I wouldn’t be able to do it without all of you.
So let’s get started.  :)
One winner – one pen.
All you have to do to enter is go here and read the details
Raffle will run from Wednesday, June 11, through Saturday, June 28, 2014.
If you have any questions please ask.  If I forgot anything please let me know!  :)
Here’s a load of cool materials that I have available, plus lots more in the shop, for that lucky raffle winner.
