Welcome to PCS Blog

Today we had our Board meeting and we decided to start a blog to give members a forum to ask questions, talk about what they are creating and just to help you on your calligraphic journey. Philadelphia Calligraphers' Society has monthly board meeting, September thru June.  We hold Workshops in the fall and spring with 2 fundraisers a year one in the Spring at Penn Wynne Presbyterian Church,one in the fall in NJ - this one will be combined with our Holiday party on December 4 at YALE School in Cherry Hill..  We are a group that encompasses Southern and Central NJ, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware (Tri state area). This is a very large area to be able to meet at central locations; with our hectic lives, sometimes we are not meeting the needs of our members. So to help everyone on their calligraphic journey we will have this forum for you to ask questions, learn new techniques and just have a form for you to feel somewhat connected to the group. Please feel free to post questions and just let us know how we can help.  Thanks so much
