I was wondering if there are any pen clubs in Holland.

Does someone know if there are some?

 

 

thanks

Well, I meant Lennard, as he started the thread :)

But, feel free to do so Gub ;)

 

To be true, I have no idea what a penclub does either, haha!

Hi

I too have not heard of a Dutch pen-club.

 

The only "event" here is the annual Tilburg Penshow in the Scription end of september.

 

I am not sure what to expect of a penclub...??

And talk about pens.

 

Of course there was this session at a pen store last month I think (forgetting time, too busy :D), where Gub and I met up :D.

 

There wil be another one of these towards the end of November, beginning of December. I will have a (limited) supply of FPN inks with me as well, (they arrived 1 week after the fact this time, unfortunately), and as before I will do nib and flow adjustment, smoothing, etc. for free, provided it is a simple job. For more complicated jobs we need to make an appointment, or draw up a plan :D.

 

BTW, for those of you interested, it will be on a Saturday, in Heerlen, Limburg, quite close to the railway station, and there will likely be discounts on (fountain) pens, anything in store or ordered right then and there.

 

I have no specific liaison with the store, BTW, other than that I am a satisfied customer, a stip-o-holic, and like to promote the Fountain Pen Network, which the owners of the store allow me to do :D.

 

Warm regards, Wim

No, unfortunately, is the answer. Amsterdam and Zwolle come to mind as ones with good pen shops, but I am afraid that is as close as it gets, AFAIK. You could also consider Utrecht (less good), or PW Akkerman in The Hague (the best currently, when it comes to selection of pens, inks, etc.).

Appelboom boeken & vulpennen in Laren (near Almere) - www.appelboom.com/pennen.html

 

Some other stores I've been to:

De Roos in Heemstede (very nice) - http://www.vulpenspeciaalzaak.nl/

De inktpot in Deventer, Broederenstraat 47 (very friendly)

Penshop in Nijmegen - http://www.penshopnijmegen.nl/

kantoorboekhandel Meijer en Siegers in Oosterbeek - http://www.meijer-siegers.nl

 

Mevri in Maastricht is a very good (old) store, but I believe they ended their business recently??

There is also store in Arnhem, but I haven't been there yet: www.vulpenhuis.nl

 

There was a "vulpenbeurs" (=FP event) in Barneveld a month ago but I didn't have the time to go there.

 

I live near Apeldoorn.
