I can't find any newsgroups concerning calligraphy.  Just wondered if there
are others out and about who have a love of this craft as I do.

Glad to hear from you, Lise!  Just today I was at a brand new mall in our
area, visiting a Christmas store.  I overheard a customer ask the saleswoman
about personalizing ornaments and she said they had someone to do it but
didn't know when she would be by.  So I opened up my mouth, that I did
calligraphy, and asked if they needed someone else to help out.  I will
bring a sample business type card by tomorrow.  In the meantime, the
customer wanted my name and number!  There are opportunities everywhere, if
you listen for them. I'm just e***d to do it, making any money at the same
time is icing on the cake.

I taught myself, too.  What sources did you use and how long have you been
doing calligraphy?  I mostly do poems with a little artwork on them, but
have done a variety of things.

Have you visited the Calligraphy Ring?  I have shared this with a few people
who have e-mailed me.  The address is:

Start there and follow the webring.  There are some fine pieces on some of
those pages and it is inspiring to see other's work.
