It was an absolute pleasure to attend the DC Fountain Pen Supershow this year. I last attended this pen show in 2012, so it was a lot of fun to return 5 years later. I loved interacting with so many great people and I really appreciated all of the kind words.
I was contacted by SkillShare to talk about their website. I liked what I saw a lot: SkillShare offers a lot of online classes that might be very helpful to my viewers, for example in the field of learning calligraphy, hand lettering, etc. And, perhaps even better, SkillShare kindly gives my viewers a free two-month trial to take as many classes as they like.
If you’re interested in that offer, please check it out – and if you need it, use the promo code SBREBROWN. This applies on memberships of one year, so it does mean you are committed for a full year. If you do not want to sign up for the full year and pay the membership fee, you MUST cancel the trial before the trial period ends, or the membership fee will be charged to the card you provided.

This is what it is like to sit down with us after dinner. I have no idea if this is boring or interesting, so let us know. If it is not boring, there may be a part 2.
Through kind sponsoring by Iguana Sell, I was able to attend the Madrid pen show. A lovely city, a great venue, a wonderful show, and many, many super nice people: I thoroughly enjoyed in. In this video, I share some thoughts on the show.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED! Congratulations to the winner Michael GS! The winning comment was on Stephen’s blog!
A huge thank you to La Couronne du Comte for donating this pen for review and GIVEAWAY! We thought we would save this one for Fountain Pen Day, which is today!
