So back in the day, when I was but a wee lass, someone gave me a calligraphy set that I had been dying for, and I worked my butt off learning it (yes, I was a bit of an odd one).
Years later, all that stuff is missing–so I need a new calligraphy pen.
I bought a cheapo one at Hobby Lobby to see if I still had the goods, and it turns out I do, luckily (because I can’t afford calligraphy costs!).
I appreciate all advice you can give me about pens and where you got yours! 🙂

I don’t have a suggestion (sorry) but I wanted to bump this up for you because I’m interested in this as well!

I’ve gotten several trying to find one I like for the wedding. I can tell you I do not like Chronicle. The nibs are inconsistent. There is a post on pro where (I think it is) Laura Hooper recommends a set on a site that she uses. It’s not that expensive, so I might start there.
Ugh, now I have to go calligraphize envelopes for my thank you notes!

Anyone figure out which pens are best?

I just ordered the set that Laura Hooper suggests: It’s the copperplate starter set from http://www.paperinkarts.com/. I’ll let you know in a few days!!

I used a speedball one from Joann’s and it worked WAY, WAY better than the pen I had in England. WAY WAY better, I still can’t get over how much better it was to use….
