We're Indy's NEW letter writing social group, named Penny Black Society after the first postal stamp. This will be an ongoing event, hosting socials every other week. Write More Letters - that's our motto. Our friends from Chicago, called The Letter Writer's Alliance (http://16sparrows.typepad.com/letterwritersalliance/) will be joining us to host our first event! That's kind of a big deal. What to expect: We're just people writing letters and having fun! We will provide type writers, stationery, envelopes, mail art supplies and addresses. There will be a mini class on making your own envelopes, creating your own letter writing box and fun things to send your pen pals - plus where to find pen pals. *The only thing you should bring to class for yourself are stamps to mail your letters and addresses if you have anyone you would like to write to. We will go over weight limits and how much postage it takes, etc.

Bring one of the following:
A Miniature item
Baked goods to share!
Ball Jars
Vintage postcards
