Thank you to everyone who made an appearance at last night's August meeting of the Melbourne Pen Group. Well over a dozen people showed up and we almost ran out of room! 

 

Guido Saltari gave us a wonderful presentation about Visconti, its history, and its myriad of styles and filling-mechanisms. Our next meeting will be in October, and then the pre-show dinner before the Melbourne Pen Show, which is in November this year! Welcome to Val and Rod, our two newest attendees!

Hi Pen People,
We will meet at the Tower Hotel Hawthorn Bistro 6.30pm for a meal & 7.30 on this coming Monday 13th October. We have no one planned to talk to us as the Melbourne Pen Show is next month & we would like to organise the details of the Melbourne Pen Group display. Also, show & tell items would be nice to see, as it has been some time since we have done this.
Cheers,
Peter & Max
