Meeting: Monday, April 14th

Just a reminder we have our April meeting coming up, at Murray’s house from 7-9.

No matter what pen you own – it’s all about the nib.  So that is the topic this month.

Have a specialty nib?  Something rare or crazy?  A favourite nib by a favourite nibmeister?  A nib you loathe?  One that hit the floor?  Bring them with you and show them off along with the stories.  Is there a nib you’re dying to see or want to try?  Feel free to ask, and maybe one of the members can bring it along.

As always – new acquisitions, ephemera and related objects, stationery, etc. are always welcome.

Please RSVP and let us know if you can attend or not.  We’ll have the best of tines, we’ll have the worst of tines…..

See you all Monday!

Meeting: Monday February 10th, 2014

Main topic:  We are going to do a pen and ink trade this month.  Bring any pens and ink you are not using (or turned out not to be the pen you thought it was going to be) and are interested in trading or selling.  We’ll see if we can’t find something you like and make a deal….

As always, new acquisitions and stories will be the secondary topic.

If you have any inks, pens, or paper you would like to view in person because you are considering making a purchase feel free to give a shout out to the group to see if anyone can bring it in for a look at it in person before you put your money down.

Hope to see you all there!

Happy New Year

Yes, the club is still active.  There have been few blog posts mostly due to time issues.  Hopefully we will be posting more frequently in the near future.

The Meetings tab has been updated with the meeting dates for 2014.

Hope to see you all there.

Next Meeting: Monday March 11, 2013

Just a reminder our next meeting is coming up this Monday March 11th, 2013.  We will be at Murray’s house again, starting at 7pm.  Let me know if you need location information.

This month our theme is   “Fountain Pens:  Love ’em, and hate ’em”.  Bring your favourite 2 fountain pens, and that one purchase that you’ve grown to dislike, and let us know what is makes it a fantastic pen, or is just plain awful.

As always, our secondary theme will be new acquisitions.  Bring your new pens, stationery, ephemera, et al. and share the joy with everyone!

Something you want to see, or try?  Let us know and we’ll see if we can rustle it up for you.

You know the drill  – please let us know if you’re coming or not so we can plan for space/chairs.

Thanks, and we’ll see you on Monday.

Next Meeting: Monday, January 14th

Just a reminder that our next meeting is coming up this Monday January the 14th.  We will be meeting at Murray’s, starting at 7pm and running until about 9pm.

After moving it a few months due to some other events, our main topic will be general pen repairs.  So please bring along any pens that you would like to do some work on.  I am pretty sure between Murray and John most tool needs can be met, as well as information and experience.  There are several good repair books in the library.

As usual, our secondary topic will be new acquisitions, old favourites, or anything else you would like to bring to show and share – be it pens, ink, paper, or related accessory.

If there are any specific pens, inks, or paper anyone is interested in seeing, please feel free to make the request and we can see if any of our members is able to bring it along.
