Default Hello from the UK

Hi fellow pen turners, I didn't realise how big the family of pen turners was until I found IAP. I live In a small place called Hayling Island off the south coast of the UK, we have a small bridge connecting us to the mainland which I love. I have been turning pens now for about four years just for fun and also for presents for friends. Like me, you most probably didn't realise that you had a skill for pen turning until people began to complement you on your work. This made me very proud and gave me the confidence to produce more advanced pens to push my skills.
I hope that through the IAP I will not only meet but learn from my fellow pen turners.

Welcome from Oklahoma
Warning! Pen turning can be addictive!
Please turn at your own risk...then smile and show off your work!
