Hello all!  My name is Allie and I am relatively new to the fountain pen world and quickly becoming an addict.  I had a fountain pen when I was a child, but when the cartridges ran out, so did my fun.  I have rediscovered them now and am venturing into different filling systems and bottled inks.  I look forward to learning about this hobby from those who have more experience than me.

Welcome!

You will find a lot of very knowledgeable enablers here! So much to learn and to teach!

 

Beware the contagion to accumulate MORE pens, ink, and paper!! Addictive indeed!

Hi Allie,

 

That's a great tidbit, you having a fountain pen when you were young. I find fountain pens to be such a rewarding hobby, not least because they lead to other healthy and fruitful things like writing and sketching and journaling. 

 

This is a great group... I bet you're going to be really glad you started using fountain pens again and found your way here.

 

High regards,

Brad

Hello and welcome to FPN.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Greetings and welcome!

 

:W2FPN:


...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

Thanks for all the welcomes (took me a while to figure out I have to check for replies!  I am a little new to this...).

 

And addictive indeed!  On my recent trip to the US I visited two different fountain pen shops and ended up with a TWSBI 580 AL and two gorgeous bottles of ink.  I can almost call it a collection now.   B)
