Hi from Charlotte, North Carolina
« on: September 07, 2014, 08:49:06 PM »
Hey Y'all!!!  New to Flourish Forum and pointed pen calligraphy.  Been studying broad edge for 20+ years.  Just started Harvest Crittenden's Spencerian class...even after one week I have learned so much!!  Nice to be among, what I believe are the most amazing artists...calligraphers!!  ;D

Hi Rebecca!  Welcome to the forum!  Charlotte is my favorite place in the whole world...my husband and I are hoping to move there (from North Dakota) someday soon!  Perhaps we'll be able to meet in person someday :)  I hope you find the resources here as helpful as I have!

Hi Rebecca! I'm in Harvest's class, too.

20+ years of pointed pen -- that's awesome! I did pointed pen 20 years ago, but let it languish until recently. Now I'm picking it back up and learning pointed pen. There's a broad pen exchange over in the broad pen forum if you're interested. (There's a also a pointed pen fall exchange, but I had to get in a plug for broad pen.  :) )

Welcome! I'm sure you will love the Forum!

Dear Jamie:  Yes, Charlotte is a fabulous place to live and work...been here about 15 years and adore it!!  Yes, would love to meet you when you arrive...we born and bred southerners are amongst the most gracious of all!

Dear Lori:  No...20+ years of broad edge - not pointed....fairly new to pointed pen.  I am already in a year long broad edge exchange - and just signed up for the Fall Exchange here!!  Feeling pretty inadequate - as there is AMAZING talent here.  But blessed to be part of the community!!
