Hello,

I'm sorry I'm not on here often but try to check in now and then. I love what is contributed here and am always amazed at the contributions Erica has made to the community with this forum.

Oh how I wish I could go! One of these years! Enjoy and would love if you post a few pics when you do.

Best to all!

I am going to Advanced Saga! It's my first time, and I am VERY excited.

Are you going to either, @AnasaziWrites?

Yes, I'm also going to attend the Advanced Saga.
It will be big fun to meet you in person. My first time at a Saga as well. Bring your camera--there will be lots of interesting things to see from the Saga collection.

I didn't think I could get more excited about Saga, but I just did :). It will be great to meet you!

I know @aliceedang and @YokePenCo are also attending advanced saga.

So glad you are able to go to the Saga!  The Saga was my introduction into the oblique pen & Spencerian script.  What a great week - pen friends, scenery, and someone else does all the cooking & cleaning.  hurrah!

Wow. Thats sounds like a big thing. Pardon me as I've never heard of this before. But can I have more details. Were it happens? Who organises it? Who could register? Any criteria for registration?

Thanks,

I've been in touch with Chris lately, and he says he is going to bring his collection of oblique pens, and if Harvest brings the Reed collection of pens, it will be the largest group of antique obliques anywhere.
Are you bringing anything extra?

I'm going to bring my copies of Bloser's Lessons in Ornamental Penmanship as well as the Japanese reprint I have of The New Spencerian Compendium, and maybe some original signatures I have, but those are the only cool extra things I have :).

Can't wait to meet you all!

I'll be putting as much as I possibly can into the truck before I leave. Including, as Mike stated, my pen holder collection. Also I know I will be bring several original specimens from the likes of Madarsz, Baird, Norder, Dennis, Kelchner, etc. Also an original copy of The Universal Penman, a few larger mounted pieces such as a Courtney Flourish, Original Zanerian Gold Seal Certificate, Lupfer's Zanerian Business Penmanship exemplar certificate, maybe a few more historic books, etc

Whatever I can remember to bring.  :P

Some pictures from the Advanced Spencerian Saga.
I'm still recovering. Long, productive, enjoyable days. Harvest is a wonderful teacher, and I learned a lot. Highly recommended.
The third picture is of Harvest Crittenden in front of P. R. Spencer's house, which is being restored.
The fourth picture is of us hunting for the perfect oval stone on Spencer's beach.
The fifth picture is the view from the Lakeshore Inn--home of the saga.
