Michigan Pen Collectors ...

The Michigan Pen Collectors is one of the great pen clubs in the USA with members from both the state of Michigan and some from Ontario Canada. It is well known for the the pen show it puts on each fall. Many of its members were also original attendees at the first Ohio Pen Show and the Chicago. Some members are very well known in the pen community world wide. They pride themselves on helping new comers to the hobby of Pen Collecting to learn and expand their knowledge of pens and collecting.

One of their members, Ralph Stillwell was the originator of the PENS FOR KIDS movement within the world wide pen community.

Anyone interested in pens should contact the club.

PEN COLLECTORS OF AMERICA ...

Our organization exists to foster and maintain the integrity of pen collecting, promote the use of fountain pens, encourage and promote effective education, communications and understanding between all collectors, and define pen collecting as an international hobby. Members are interested in the history, manufacture and use of writing instruments. We strive to develop a spirit of camaraderie among the pen collecting community.

The PCA is the pre-emminent organization representing Fountain Pen Collectors in America. It is worth every collectors time to visit their website and support the efforts put forth for this hobby. One of those endevours has been the creation of Pens for Kids whose efforts were championed by a member of the Michigan Pen Collectors, Ralph Stillwell.

Fountain pens are strange and exotic things to the majority of children in the US today. My pens have attracted quizzical stares from the young and an outpouring of questions about just what that thing was I was using to write with! In my experience, children never fail to be fascinated by a fountain pen. (Sam Fiorella)

Our meetings are held 4 to 5 times a year in the LA & Orange County area, usually at a member's home or some facilities made available to us.>History: Started back in 1987, the Southern California Pen Collectors Club is considered by some to be the precursor to the national club. the Pen Collectors of America. We have members of all ages & visitors come from around the globe. We all share interests in writing instruments, especially FOUNTAIN PENS, both vintage & new. Our meetings usually include a presentation & we always have lively discussions on usage, collecting, trading, buying & selling, tall tales of acquisition, plus repair / restoration techniques.

Our club's spiritual heart is the Fountain Pen Shop in Monrovia, located East of Pasadena. (Formerly the FPS of LA!) 3rd generation shop owner, Fred Krinke is a life long pen aficionado, treasure trove of pen knowledge and a master at repair/restoration so if you need to get a new found treasure or beloved favorite fixed, see Fred! They have a fine selection of new & vintage pens, too.

This is an excellent way to get in touch with the club and gain admission to their web presence.

Research Triangle Pen Club

The Triangle Pen Club was spawned from Deb Kinney's notepad.

In the summer of 1998, we decided to have a local vintage pen show, and the upper management at Sharon Luggage offered space at the store and a fair bit of print and radio advertising. We set up shop on a couple of tables. I probably had 20 Sheaffers and maybe half a dozen Vacumatics, Deb had some real pens. In a stroke of genius, Deb set a notepad down for interested people to sign up so we could start a club. A few months went by, but we had our first meeting February 21, 1999, at Elmo's, a local restaurant. We thought it would be empty. Ha! We barely had space to sit and compare notes.

Since then, we've met Sunday afternoons at the Regulator Bookstore in Durham, once every other month or so. Sometimes it's more frequent. We've had special meetings - like dinner with Tom Zoss when he came to town, and around the DC Pen Show so we could show off our new pens to each other.

Research Triangle Pen Club

The group is interesting and varied - all ages and backgrounds. We've often had themed meetings, like Renard teaching us how to refill rollerball cartridges or our big ink festival.

Writing Equipment Society ... WRITING EQUPMENT SOCIETY

The Writing Equipment Society grew from a group of enthusiasts who had two things in common – they were iterested in all the paraphernalia associated with the act of writing and they all patronized ‘His Nibs’, the fascinating shop belonging to Philip Poole in Drury Lane, London.

Philip had written informal newsletters to his customers and friends, pulling together a group which met in London in September 1980, to realise that they had the makings of a really worthwhile new society.

So it was, that on 30th November 1980, an inaugural meeting was held in the Bonnington Hotel, London, and the Writing Equipment Society was born.

The idea was to promote ownership, conservation, study and use of writing equipment – to record knowledge and share it with others.

Philip Poole’s pre-1980 newsletters have now been brought together and re-printed in one volume to celebrate our first 25 years (2005). These newsletters were the ‘foundation stones’ upon which the current WES Journal has been built.

Since 1980 the Society has built up a membership of around 500 – about 150 of whom are from overseas. Whilst fountain pens are the main interest of most members there are groups of varying size that are interested in everything connected with the world of writing from papers to inks; from writing slopes to slates; from stamp boxes to pencil boxes; from steel pen nibs to quill cutters – the list seems endless.

The WES Journal is published and distributed internationally in spring, summer and autumn and is widely respected for its informative style and substantial content. There are three members’ meetings each year offering a varied and interesting programme. The Annual Meeting is held in London in November.
