Hello from South Yorkshire



InkNsap

Recommended Posts

Hello my dear pen lovers! I’m a Venezuelan living in South Yorkshire. I have recently started collecting and playing with fountain pens and paper and discovered this community through YouTube (watching Sbrebrown). I can’t seem to find anyone close to me into this hobby so I’m very interested in making connections (online for the moment) and learning more about pens.  
I work in a Library, love reading and I’m a bit of an introvert.

Hi inkNsap, welcome! It's 2 hours until 2021 here in New Zealand and I guess everyone else is partying!

I like your photo and like to try and guess what pens people have. I never get all correct.

 

Happy New Year

Hello and welcome to this friendly corner of the fountain pen universe from a pen user in San Diego. There is such a wealth of information for you to discover here. Write On!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I have been enjoying journaling a lot with my fountain pens, which has helped with coping with the weather. I am from a very tropical country so I don’t really enjoy extremes (used to live in Spain before and Madrid in the summer was torture). Any tips you can give me to navigate this community would be great!  
 

Thank you again for the lovely welcome! 
Feliz navidad and Feliz año nuevo! 🎊

Hi, I'm pretty new to fountain pens as a hobby and new to this forum. I'm also from South Yorkshire and have been wondering if there are any local meets to chat pens and swap knowledge about these fantastic little things. I turned to FPs during lockdown and have really been enjoying them as a distraction from the weather!

 

thanks, 

Richard

I am from Sheffield and would also be interested. I have just got back into fountain pens after a long absence.

 

Cheers,

Maybe when the lockdown is lifted we could arrange an informal Yorkshire gathering?

Welcome! Glad you found us. There are more fountain pen lovers out there than is immediately obvious. Once things open up more, sounds like you've already got a start. Check out the Clubs, Meeting and Events forum to see if there is already a group in your area. 

 

Good luck!

Andrew
