That is incredible! I would take hours studying this before placing my order.  ;D

Thanks @AnasaziWrites - the pen inspired him to learn as he made it for himself.  ;D

Thank you @darrin1200 ! That is so kind of you! He may take you up on that. He loves connecting with other pen makers.  :-*

My husband has taught himself how to turn calligraphy pens and it has become a new obsession for him! He finally made himself a pen and asked me to teach him Engrosser's Script so he can properly use it. We had a great first lesson which was ended when our Siberian, Bloo, decided it was dinner time and Adam was done writing.

P.S. Adam was shocked at how quickly 3 hours went by and just wanted to "try one more" before stopping. This is going to work out nicely for me. Wish I thought of it years ago - LOL!  ;D

Quite the extensive experience - so many great hands! Have you ever done Kate McKulla’s Swingline? It came out around the same time as Weaver Writing and is similar to Suzanne’s modern style.

The answer is Copperplate. Did that not work?

I will send you a DM if you’d like to join the perpetual exchange. We have had one member drop out for the remainder of the year so there is a spot open.  :) We would love to have you join us!

Love the ruling pen - have to let that energy fly!  ;D

I do a lot of copperplate  but I have also learned pointed pen uncial, weaver's script, storybook script (ala Kathy Milici), Spencerian, and most recently Madarasz (with Schin Loong).  Also use brush pens on occasion.  I don't love modern calligraphy, but my brides kept asking for it, so I've done that too.  I rather like Suzanne Cunningham's modern and that's favorite modern style.  I started out with broad point and abandoned it the minute I saw pointed pen.  My current new thing is ruling pen -- but I am so copperplate rigid I doubt I'll ever get the hang of that free form style.  I'm retired and have tons of time to indulge in all kinds of classes.  My flourishing is weak but I'm working on it.

Looking forward to someday participating in your envelope exchange.  How can I get involved?

And what the heck is the answer to Eleanor Winters' book?  I thought it was mastering copperplate calligraphy, but that doesn't seem to be the answer.

Oh wow! I love it!!!

Hi @ireneblumenthal So glad to see you were able to figure it out (saw your intro post). Welcome to Flourish! P.S. The questions go away after the first couple of posts.  :)
