Hello from New Jersey!
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:28:13 AM »
Hi All, I'm Jenafer. I have been wanting to learn calligraphy for about 15 years after multiple frustrating attempts I realized I had the wrong supplies. About 6 months ago I invested in an online Calligraphy course from The Postman's Knock and bought her suggested supplies and it was like magic in front of my eyes, it all came together and in just a few weeks I started to write beautiful calligraphy and I am hooked and in LOVE with this beautiful art form! My inspiration to learn this time was to do my wedding invitations which I am so pleased with. I can't wait to continue to learn and grow and create envelopes and invitations for others.

This forum has been so helpful already and I can't wait to share ideas!

Welcome, Jenafer!  Yes, the right supplies will make such a difference, and you'll find much discussion here on all sorts of materials.
