Hello everybody,

Michael Dromgoole here again to talk about an event we have upcoming this weekend. On Saturday February 24th, we will be having a special pen event with two very special guests. The first guest we are extremely excited about is Dante Del Vecchio, founder of Visconti and also current designer of Pineider pens, he will be down here showing off some of his newest pens including our very own exclusive, and some new nibs Pineider is coming out with(VERY EXCITING). We also are welcoming Ken Jones, Vice President of Sales at Yafa (distributor of Conklin, Monteverde, Stipula, Pineider, etc.), and he will be here helping out with the event and showing off pens from all of their brands. This will be a bit different of an event than we have always had in the past, we will have some tables for gathering with snacks and good chatter. We hope anyone that can make it shows up and enjoys themselves. Both guests are great to talk to and have a lot of experience in the industry. I will also be doing an interview with Dante and hope to get a video up early next week. If anyone has any questions they would like me to ask, please shoot them my way! Its our first big event of 2018, and it will run from 10AM-4PM. We hope to see everybody here!

 

Here is a link with a flyer about the event and a picture of our first Pineider Exclusive, what I like to call the "Midnight Shadows". It is limited to 37 pieces!

This is super exciting!  I loved meeting you at the LA Pen show and I was so excited to meet Dante Del Vecchio too!  Sorry that I can't be there to see you all again.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I definitely look forward to the video since I’m half a continent away. Ken Jones talked me into my first Visconti stub years back when he still worked for Visconti and the rest is history. I’m dying to see what Dante is planning.

I was lucky enough to make the event! Great meeting Dante again. I had met him when he was promoting the Visconti Homo Sapien. I managed to snag #23/37 of the Dromgoole LE pen. They were going fast when i had to leave for other errands. Great spending time with the Dromgoole family,too.
