What a terrific start to 2014! A few days ago I received an email from Scriptus – the newly launched blog that provides details of Scriptus 2014 – Toronto’s Fountain Pen & Writing Show, scheduled for November 2, 2014 at the Appel Salon, 2nd flr., Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., Toronto. This is the first of such shows in Toronto since 2010 and the organizer/driving force behind it is Philip Akin. The blog provides interested readers with the ability to subscribe for updates, including inter alia sponsorship and vendor-exhibitor information.
The hobby of using & collecting of fountain pens and related items is strong and widespread across Canada as evidenced by the number of clubs – Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, GTA, and, of course, our club in London. We Canadians need a pen show of our own so if there is ANYTHING that you can do to make this event a success, whether as a sponsor, vendor-exhibitor, volunteer, or attendee please contact Philip at firstname.lastname@example.org.
