I am a Kentuckian who made a bad decision to relocate to California in 2013. I am a skilled trained artist who used to execute Calligraphy years ago and unfortunately did not stick with a joy and beautiful crafted script. I used to have a nice handwriting style, but unfortunately from using technology and computers too strictly became lazy like the majority of our society in keeping and developing proper penmanship. It should be resurrected back into all levels of mandatory curriculum in schools.
Your organization and website is fabulous and inspiring to anyone who takes the time to explore its contents. IAMPETH should advertise more to the general public if in fact they want more usage and coverage and resurrection of proper penmanship.
I am planning to join and would love to be able to attend the convention next year in my hometown of Louisville if I am able to move back to Kentucky next year as hoped. Being fully disabled from employment and also a Disabled Veteran, it is a struggle to get the money together for the move.
