Very excited for this! I plan on driving out from olathe, Kansas once my fiance gets done with school on Friday.

I-70 west, get off the Quebec exit, one block south - easy peasy :)


We look forward to meeting you!

I was really hoping to go, had my room booked and everything, and then my car starts acting up. I am really disappointed I wont be able to attend. Heartbroken, actually... always next year I guess.

I shall be dropping by this afternoon after visiting the botanic gardens to see the Chihuly glass show.













I ride a recumbent, I play go, I use Macintosh so of course I use a fountain pen.

Great fun. Lots of talk about pens and smart phone credit card apps. Got some cool stuff but bought no pens. Played with a lot of remarkable fountain pens I could never have otherwise seen or touched.


Congratulations and my heartfelt appreciation to all who struggled to put on the event.

I missed the show but thanks to internet, paypal and one very helpful FPGeek I was able to purchase a Waterman 55 with a no 5 nib from Joel Hamilton. Not a wet noodle writer apparently but with some flex for me to try out.

Rob Maguire (Plse call me "M or Mags" like my friends do...)I use a Tablet, Apple Pencil and a fountain pen. Targas, Sailor, MB, Visconti all wonderful.

Terrific first show. I have seen some shows with years behind them that were not run as well. Ed, his lovely wife and the Pen Posse are to be congratulated on making everyone from dealers to attendees welcome and having everything taken care of. Next year it will be too big for that room I suspect!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
