I am a new member having joined in Mid-May 2021.  I was lucky enough to be able to attend the conference in Omaha this year.  I really enjoyed meeting fellow calligraphers.  I am very excited and encouraged by attending the conference.  I hope to attend next year in Atlanta.  I enjoy accessing ll the educational materials and reading the Penman's Journal.  Thank you for providing this wonderful resource to calligraphers and those who appreciate the craft.

See you next year!

Hello, I am an avid calligraphy and penmanship fan.  I remember vividly in first and second grade practicing cursive script over and over, till fourth grade , a teacher had asked me to help engross the diplomas of the eighth grade graduates !  I felt honored, and, have had many people ask for my "John Hancock" signature, which I execute to this day !  I would like to learn more, the real way to write, and, continue this art form.  I am in Lambertville, NJ, close to New Hope, PA, and, would like to find a group that represents my area.  Please help !  Thanks kindly, Bill Baxter

Hello, I think your site is amazing. I have been a fan of the art of calligraphy, for quite some time now. However, I have been unable to mind classes to suit my skill level (basic)in the New York area. I do have a keen interest in learning, please advise. Thank you

You might want to contact The Society of Scribes in NY. They have workshops quite often, and there would certainly be information on classes happening in the area. You can see their website here:

My writing hand was switched by teachers around 1980 in kindergarten from my left hand to my right hand. My writing is terrible now but I would like to know where I can take classes in the Palmer method to get it to the most beautiful penmanship the average person has ever seen! This site is phenominal! Thank you.

Hi Jerry. Look up the calligraphy guild in your area, and look up the Fountain Pen Club in Little Rock. And join IAMPETH for penmasters in Arkansas :o)

Thank you James! I will do that. There is a gentleman that has stretched his hand out to help me and I am excited about starting practice! Now all I need, is a little bit of patience with myself so I don't get discouraged with my stiff arm movements. Thank you!

I have my mother's Palmer method certification dated March 11, 1932 signed by Mr. Palmer. It is one of my favorite pieces of art and hangs on my wall. Until she died she wrote exactly the same. It was beautiful.

Great PDFs! I'm looking for The Graduated Series of Copy Books by Walter M'Leod (1860s), or any Mulhauser copy books.
