August COVID-19 Update - Crafting in Pandemic Times

You are all creative people. I see you making beautiful pens and pen supplies. I see you writing with lovely fountain pen penmanship. I see you doing your art. Show us MORE!

Here in the Scriven home, we have been hand binding little Tomoe River signatures and covering them with a stunning cotton fabric (a fountain pen themes cotton fabric). If we can get more of this incredible fabric, we will even make a few masks.

May COVID-19 Update

I hope you are all well and safe and healthy. Please be careful and cautious with the reopening phases that are happening about the country.

Scriven is still happily booked in for May 2021 with a dual theme: Black Walnut and the St- Laurence River.

I hope to see some of you at Toronto's Sciptus. I am keeping a close eye on how they will handle things with the new norm.

We will keep Scriven quite small and spacious for the first one to hold to the distancing that I expect we will still need next spring. So... if you are NOT yet registered, please check in with me to see if I still have space for you.

We are all thinking of you and wishing you all the very best during these trying times.

Help us raise the funds to give you an amazing show full of vintage pens, incredible inks, homegrown papers and other writing supplies.
