This year Fountain Pen Network-Philippines is celebrating Fountain Pen Day on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 at the Commune Cafe and Bar, at 36 Polaris cor. Durban Sts., Makati, from 1-6pm. This is open to the public! Entrance is free and snacks will be served to the first 50 guests. Fountain Pen Day is brought to you by Cars and Calibres, and Calibre Magazine.
International Fountain Pen Day is usually held on the first Friday of November. It was first organized by Cary Yeager in the US. Here in the Philippines, we have been celebrating it since 2014. Here are accounts of our celebrations from 2014, 2015 and 2016.
If you have any pens that need tuning or basic repair, please bring them on Nov. 4. Our resident nibmeisters, John Raymond Lim, J. P. Reinoso, and Mark Tiangco will be there to give your pens some TLC.
Some of our favorite retailers, Pengrafik, Scribe, Everything Calligraphy and Bags by Rubbertree, will be on hand at Commune Cafe and Bar to supply you with pens, ink, paper and accessories, at major discounts!
T-shirts (men’s sizes only, sorry) will also be available on a first-come, first served basis at P350 each.
See you there!
