Less than one month away, the 4th Annual Colorado Pen Show kicks off at noon on Friday, 6 Oct 2017 and runs through 4pm on Sunday, 8 Oct 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Denver-Stapleton North 4040 Quebec Street, Denver, Colorado, 80216.
We have 35 exhibitors (so far) this year, including show sponsorsRyan Krusac Studios and Karas Kustoms and show partners Anderson Pens, Pendemonium and Pen World! Highly regarded nibmeister Mike Masuyama i returning this year to tune nibs, so be sure to get there early and get in his queue for all your nib work!
If you get tired of shopping for pens, ink, paper and accessories (hah!!) the schedule is jam-packed with classes. The lineup starts on Thursday with the two-day American Cursive Instructor Certification Program (ACICP) class taught by Michael Sull and Marie Hornback (pre-registration is mandatory for this certification class). Other highlights include Amanda McKay's "Kick A$$ Snail Mail Writing" on Friday afternoon, "Hands on Spencerian Penmanship Workshop with Michael Sull" and Sam Fiorella's "Think Ink!" class on Saturday, and Nikola Pang's "Italic Script" class on Sunday. Some require pre-registration and a modest fee for materials. Check them all out on the Colorado Pen Show Schedule page.
And, of course, there will be prizes! I can tell you there will be three bottles of J. Herbin 1670 inks among the door prizes. The grand prize is still under wraps...they won't even give me a peak at it!!
We are looking forward to seeing all of our pen friends at the show!!
