Isn't this absolutely gorgeous? Earlier this month, Pelikan organized a global series of "hubs" where pen enthusiasts could meet.
I went to the Toronto hub, where I met some fabulous folks, got to try some lovely pens, and traded inks. Several people and stores donated items for draw prizes, and hub volunteer organizer Robert Maguire showed up with a pen wrap handmade by his pen pal, Dr. Adrienne Crockett, in England.
Didn't he draw my name for it! So here it is, keeping four of my pens safe for travel. This is why I love pen people: they appreciate beautiful things, and they're so willing to share.
