Free and open to the public, guests are welcome. Refreshments served.

Relatively speaking, our American republic is a relatively young country compared to many of the European nations. And yet, we chose not to simply adopt and preserve the English handwriting models we were born with. Our nation’s journey into developing an identifiable form of written language has been a long and exciting adventure, filled with the principles of education, business communication, social correspondence, and our human desire to share our feelings in a visible manner. Among nations, our American handwriting has been unique in many ways, and as such, it is truthfully our “American Hand.” Join us as Michael Sull shares the benchmarks of our writing styles, and the penmanship notables who have defined our 241 years of putting pen to paper.

Mike will have a limited number of his handmade penholders for sale, along with copies of his Spencerian, Practice Sets, and American Cursive books.
