Pen Night at the Reinventorium

I hosted the monthly Pen Night, for fountain pen aficionados, here at the Reinventorium tonight, and provided members with a cook’s tour of my letterpress shop. This was followed by a wide-ranging general discussion of everything from how to clean fountain pens to the ins and outs of vintage mechanical pencils. We meet again on November 25th at The Bookmark at 7:00 p.m.; if you are fountain pen crazed or simply fountain pen curious, you are welcome to join us.

This was my first go at hosting an event here in the shop, and it worked well: it helps to be housed in the Parish Hall where there are folding tables and chairs handy-by.

If only I lived in your neck of the woods and not on the other side of the country I'd be there! Looks like a nice little gathering you had.

I have a Mont Blanc fountain pen and have not used it in years because I do not know how to clean it. I would love to learn that.
Maybe I can join your group on 25 Nov.

Certainly pen cleaning is something that comes of regularly, and there’s a lot of expertise in this regard around the table!
