Greetings! I'm Amber and have been collecting and using fountain pens for a year and a half. During that time, FPN has been my go-to resource for anything I've wanted to know about this fascinating hobby. So, thank you for your wisdom and humor and generosity!

 

I am a bookbinder and a writer, so, really, it was only a matter of time before I discovered fountain pens. The long U.P. winters leave lots of time for these sorts of indoor hobbies. (And outdoor ones, once you've learned to properly bundle up!) Looking forward to meeting folks and learning a lot more!

Hello. Long time fountain pen user and realized I don't know many people with this passion(?).  Just bought a new pen and wanted to share (if I can figure out how to upload pictures).

Cheers

Welcome Amber.  You must be right in the middle of Winter because we're having an amazing Summer down here.

 

I know you will enjoy your stay and I look forward to hearing more about your journey.

 

Cheers . .

Hello Amber!!! :):) Greetings from Ann Arbor. There are a bunch of people from Michigan here. Gary, who greeted you a few posts earlier is from the Kalamazoo area. But, if you ever come down to our neck of the woods, check the Club?Meetings area and check to see if the Ann Arbor Pen Posse has a meeting. Also, do check out Hollanders, it is a mecca for people in the bookbinding and book arts world.

Hello Amber 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!

- Winston Churchill
