Hi y'all.  I've have been using fountain pens as tools for a few decades now, but I seem to have acquired a few more of late. I've stumbled around FPN on and off for a couple of years--hunting down useful details. There's so much information floating around on FPN (contributed by knowledgeable, hard-typing, scribbling and photo-snapping folks) that I haven't felt I needed to ask much in the way of additional questions, or that I was competent to offer answers. But I suppose it's about time I was a little more participatory and friendly-like. So, hello! 

 

I do have an introductory query: as someone planning to attend the Scriptus pen event in Toronto in a week or so (October 29), I am curious if there is any particular strategy for saying hello (in advance) to other folks that will be there. Perhaps an FPN topic or place to hang out? I didn't see much under the Scriptus event itself on FPN, but maybe I am missing something? This will be my third year attending Scriptus. Its a great event, but pen shows are kind of frenetic affairs and not especially conducive to chatting or networking in my limited experience. Scriptus, being a one-day event, also limits the networking opportunities compared with some all-weekend shindigs of which I have heard.

Bonjour from Bc! Nice to see another Canadian! *waves from all the way over here*.Pentel seems like they have a fountain pen category despite having nothing there on their Canadian website yet nothing on the American Web ship.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


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!

Welcome !  

 

Agreed.  The collective information from the generous membership is quite comprehensive.  However, do not hesitate to ask your questions.  A lot of useful information emerges from the discussions that follow.   :thumbup:   What do you use for daily writing ?  

 

*     Since you are making an effort to greet, be cordial.  After all, these are people who like the same things that you like.    :vbg:

*     Be yourself.  :happyberet:  Fountainpen-ism is a vehicle that allows us to meet others.  With only fountain pens in common, the diversity of enthusiasts is enormous.   :P

*     Put on your THICK skin.  Not everyone communicates well, in English.  Grumpy people enjoy fountain pens, too.

*     Have fun..  Fountain pen collecting is fun. :bunny01:   What color are your fingers, today ?  

Write with joy.

Thank you Sasha Royale. And thank you for the greetings from across the planet: PAKMAN, bluebellrose, OCArt, Henricum_Tropen, Chrissy, mitto, tbickiii, jar and PenChalet! It's a Take-sumi fingers day and the instrument is a Franklin Christoph Model 19 black and smoke (with a steel Masuyama needlepoint).
