Broad Edge Pen Calligraphy / Re: french roundhand

I was wrong, it was Italian Hand I took. But … I found this excellent exemplar:  Ronde exemplar. It’s in French, but the diagrams are easy to understand.  :)

I don’t know of any specific guides for this hand. But David Grimes teaches a class for French Roundhand and you can see an example of his guide here.

I hope to take the class some day!

Also, don’t miss this incredible gold mine of information about French Roundhand.

Lastly, you can create guidelines here as well: Calligraphy Crush Free Guideline Generator

Hi Angelica, I took a French Roundhand class a year or two ago. Let me find my notes and I will respond.  ;D

In order to make it easier to navigate, this board can be added to each year with a new topic for each day. If you are the first poster for that day, please start a new topic with the Subject, “Day X - YEAR.” Looking forward to seeing everyone’s art!

Workshops & Conference News / Modern Storybook II Class

If you are interested in learning a modern pointed pen style and already have some pointed pen experience, I highly recommend this class with Kathy Milici. This also has excellent instruction on layout / composition. See here for details about: Modern Storybook Script 2;D

A lovely tribute and a photograph that will mark history.

2022 Exchanges / Secret Santa?
« on: September 11, 2022, 11:48:49 AM »
I’m thinking of setting up a “secret Santa” exchange for the month of December. You would be paired with one person and send them a minimum of one envelope per week for the month and a small “surprise” for Christmas. You would only have one person and you would receive from one person. Is anyone interested? Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!  :)

An annual favorite … the Halloween | Day of the Dead exchange sign ups are now closed.

Sign up Deadline: Wed, Sept 21, 2022
Postmark Deadline: Mon, Oct 10, 2022

Sign up form is now closed.



1. If you did not complete a past exchange you signed up for, you cannot participate.
2. If you will be busy and cannot meet your obligation, please do not sign up. It is not OK to think, "Life happens" and not fulfill your obligation. It is OK if circumstances require you to send your exchanges late, however, you will still not be able to participate in an exchange until yours are sent.
3. You must be a registered, activated member and you must have made at least one post, introductory or otherwise, in order to participate.

As always, the following guidelines apply:

1. Calligraphy should be used on both your exchange insert and envelope.
2. You will send a card to every member on your list (typically 7-9 members).
3. Must be related to the theme.
4. All skill levels welcome!
5. If you end up not being able to participate, please contact me ASAP. If you don't send your cards after the list has gone out, you will not be able to participate in the next exchange.
6. You must sign up before the deadline. No late sign ups.
