In Auckland the New Zealand Calligraphers attended the Art and Craft Show held in mid March of this year. A group of experienced, dedicated people manned the booth, meeting those interested in calligraphy, helping with queries about supplies and demonstrating various writing styles and tools.

We had examples on the walls around our booth of envelope exchanges, small quotes suitable for framing, and weather grams etc. On the table we had our magazines for sale, the various raffles, and a small space in which to demonstrate.
This year we ran several raffles with grateful thanks to our faithful sponsors for their support with these. One of the happy winners posed with her prize.

The overwhelming opinion was buoyant and positive as we felt it was good to be in front of the public, just letting them know we existed.
