How many Portlanders are there here? And any of you Portlanders interested in doing a meetup? It would be cool to meet some other pen heads here in town.

I'd've thought you'd get more response... maybe hand out fliers at the Portland mini pen show?

Yeah I’m kinda surprised. What’s the mini pen show?

It's a one-day event held at a brewpub (good food & good beer!). The pub gives us a room and it's in the afternoon so we're not really competing with a drinking crowd.

 

No nibmeisters, but vintage & modern sellers. Last year someone brought a giant stack of vintage pen advertisements I had fun leafing thru, and the prior year I bought my first and second vintage flex pens.

 

Here's the announcement for 2017's event.

Cool thanks. Are you the organizer?
Is there a decent fountain pen community here in Portland?

Welcome!

Go to yahoo groups and sign up for pdxpen.
Lots of pen & ink people.

Announcements on the email list.
Meetings every couple months, usually a Sunday afternoon at Lucky Lab on Quimby.
Our local pen restorers host the Northwest pen roundup in July, also at Lucky Lab.
