The May Meeting is tomorrow! May 18, 2018.  Time flies when you are having fun with pens (and ink and paper, you get the point…).

The theme of tomorrow night’s meeting will be – making a pen with silver filigree using lost wax casting.   John Buettner will once again bring his talents to our Meeting and provide a demonstration of his techniques.

Frank’s award winning newsletter will also be available to all, so don’t miss this one!

May 2016 Meeting Recap

The May Meeting was an excellent insight into the world of Pen Turning and Pen Making.  Member John Buettner  brought in his tools, supplies and machinery and gave us a demonstration on the various types of pens, fountain pens, and pencils (and even some awesome jewelry) that he makes from various materials from Silver to Plastics.  All are extraordinary works of craftsmanship and we are grateful to John for sharing his talents with us.
