We are kicking off the month of June with the Research Triangle Pen Show 2017 being held through this weekend, June 01-04. If you are not familiar with the RTP designation it is the Raleigh, North Carolina area.
The show was started by Terry and Sonya Mawhorter, and this year is hosted by Terry and Ben Mawhorter. 2017, this year, is its 14th year they are having the show at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Cary, NC.
Even though it shows the dates of June 01-04, note that today is for Exhibitors & Weekend Registrants Only, the Public Show is Friday – Sunday.
“If you are in need of specialized pen repairs or are missing a part or parts for your pen or pencil you can find it here at the show. We have workshops and learning sessions exploring the basics of purchasing pens that are right for your budget, writing style or specific need. We offer calligraphy and handwriting analyzing workshops as well for getting you to that next level of enjoyment of your favorite pen or pencil.”
Their website has a lot of information including the Registration and Schedule, Workshops and Seminars, 2017 Show Sponsors, and Fountain Pen Auction. And for fun, this is a link to my blog post on last year’s show: 2016 Research Triangle Pen Show June 03-05.
