    Talking Hello from Illinois

    Hello all. I am excited. I am here because well after three years of fountain pen writing to pen pals I am looking to make more fountain pen friends. I am hoping to make it to pen shows and find a way to possibly meet more people in the same area as myself to start up meet ups. I don’t know about many of you but I swear I am the only person where I live that uses a fountain pen. I am a mom and married I work full time. I love photography books and writing. I also tend to play video games as well.

    Welcome to FPG. The only people I know here who use fountain pens are two doctors and an optician.

    Welcome from a World of Warcraft player.

    I doubt many people here on Prince Edward Island use fountain pens, either. My realtor surprised me by having one, but none of the stores carry them.

    Welcome from a Disco Elysium “detective” (at least I think I was when I woke up)! Enjoy your stay.
