Hello All:

 

So with the new year comes the new thread for Toronto Pens and Pints.  We will try to post here or on Facebook when a new meeting is planned.  The next meeting is likely on January 13th. Yes, that's a Friday the 13th.  Perhaps it should be about the scariest pen ever purchased or the ones that just had bad luck.....Cheers, Mags

Hello all,

 

I'm a newbie in the world of fountain pens, and I look forward to meeting more local folks this Friday.

As a brief intro, I have just taken a Copperplate calligraphy workshop with Salman Khattak. A year ago I took an Intro to pointed pen calligraphy workshop at WonderPens, which I started visiting when they were located at their Dundas address.
I always liked fountain pens, but had the bad luck of getting some very cheap, scratchy and unreliable ones when I started many moons ago, which put a damper on things... Until now!

Hope to meet you soon,

 

Debora L.

 Hi Mags,

 

It was great meeting you and many other members of the Toronto group today.

Could you add me to the chat group or let me know the procedure to message/interact with the other members?

Many thanks,

 

Debora

You need to set up BBM for android and or IPhone. After that private message your pin to me and I can add you to the group for chats.

I don't think I can add people to the group chat on BBM - or maybe I just don't know how to :-)

 

Don't you have to be an admin for the chat group in order to do that?
