The Brisbane Fountain Pen (facebook) meetup's are held on weekends so some people may not able to attend. I'm organising monthly mid-week meetups to improve access and spread the benefit of the weekend meets. The first one will be held in Beenleigh (for six months) and progressively including other regions. Where do you want me to run the meets?
This first free meetup supported by Logan City Council will be help in the Beenleigh Library on Wednesday 11th October (2017) from 12:45 - 2:45pm.
This is a casual meet so if you don't have a pen we can talk about the best ones to start, or you can bring along your pens and we can explore what you use it for, experiences (good or bad), and issues, and where to go to get them fixed.
If you're pens are clogged and haven't been working for years, this is an opportunity to have those pens writing again and get some advice on how to clean and store pens properly.
I will have a stash of my own pens to repair so you can help/watch or bring along your own pens.
On display in the Library for the month (October) will be: my own vintage pen collection; pen creations made locally; and some from a local indigenous artist.
Also on display is a collection of fake Montblancs so you can see what happens to them after 10 years. Please don't buy them because they're cheap and want to see how they compare.
Bookings can be made here or on Facebook (https://goo.gl/Vseo4B).
I hope to see you there.
on Wednesday 11 October (2017) 12:45 PM - 2:45 PM.
