Coffee & Nib-bles / Milonguera (Debbie Martin) – (10/4/1952-11/2/2020)
« on: November 03, 2020, 02:26:20 PM »
Dear friends,

I don't really know which category to post this in. Many of you know Debbie ( @Milonguera on the forum and on Instagram) from the forum, from IAMPETH or from various classes, online and offline. It breaks my heart to say this but I thought you should know that she passed away yesterday. She had been battling cancer for a while and she had made her peace with it.

If you would like to send a condolences card to her husband, please write me an e-mail at and tell me where you know her from and I will gladly give you the address, since I do not want to post it publicly. I believe her husband will enjoy knowing how loved she was within the calligraphy community as well. She was a beautiful person inside and out and the world will be a darker place without her light.

Wishing you all the best during these crap times,

I love seeing those :)

Thanks for sharing it, Erica :) it was my pleasure! I got really annoyed by people asking for sooooo much money for photoshop actions when it's actually so easy.

I'd love that! Austria used Kurrent too, so I'd be curious! :)

I think I got all of your cards, thank you so much!

Yikes! I sure hope not! I'm so sorry you have to go through this!

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Pinky pain from resting hand on it
« on: January 13, 2018, 12:59:19 PM »
Hi everyone!

So I guess cramps and pains are common, but does anyone know the pain in your pinky finger that comes from writing a long time and resting your hand on it?
Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid this/get rid of it?

Hi everyone,

I've spoken to several people on the list with various birthdays and it seems like the exchange is pretty much dead.
New people sign up regularly and there's over 100 people signed up but people aren't sending anything anymore. ;)

So I would ask you kindly to close this thread, @Erica McPhee

The Library / Re: Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta

I love this book. I actually did a fair amount of research on the calligrapher and it appears that he was active in Vienna, where I now live. His other book rests in a vault here and is inaccessible to the public but you can acquire a digital copy for a mere 260€ ... gulp.

@Steve_H Okay, then let me rephrase: Is the instruction in the online videos good?
