I'm based in Worcester, MA and I hear about a couple pen groups in Boston, and in the Springfield area, but not much else. I feel like we are all pretty spread out, but definitely strong. There is a big community of fountain pen users in New England. But, I don't think we have enough clubs or meetups. Or, maybe I'm clueless and don't pay attention. Anyone interested in listing some groups/clubs in the area?

I'm outside Springfield, and haven't heard of any group around here, but would love to know also if someone had that information. And Worcester isn't that far - maybe there could be some joint activity? Would be very interested!

Alas I'm all the way down in RI, though bc of school for majority of the year I'm not around. Ditto for the other fp geeks I know who disperse for college...

Sure thing. If we could get some interested people perhaps we can start a group in central MA even if it's just via Facebook first.

Only one I know of is the Boston Pen People, which I signed up for. They also run the Commonwealth Pen Show. Other than that, I don't know of any.
