April meeting theme-- Stationery!

Our next meeting is coming up soon, so here are the details!

Time: Thursday April 21, 2011
Place: Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie Street (@ 42nd Avenue), Vancouver, B.C
Time: 6:00-6:30pm "Meet & Greet"..... 6:30pm-8:30pm Meeting.
Theme: STATIONERY--new, different & old standbys.
Please bring examples of the kind of "fountain-pen-friendly" stationery you use. As always, new pen-related acquisitions are our secondary topic.
