Truth be told, my favorite part of the holidays is giving gifts! With that in mind, I’ve done a big giveaway at this time of year for the past three years! It’s a fun thing for me to do because it provides me with a way to thank you for using calligraphy worksheets, leaving nice comments on blog posts, staying in touch on social media, and/or reading TPK!
Okay, let’s get to the giveaways! As with all TPK giveaways, anyone in any country is eligible to win; I’m glad to ship internationally. Under the description of each giveaway item, you’ll see a Rafflecopter widget. Use it to enter the giveaway for each item that catches your eye! You’ll notice that several entry options focus on social media, but if you’re not on social media, you can still enter using a few options (like “Subscribe to the TPK Blog”). All of the giveaways below will end on Tuesday, January 8th, at 1:30 PM MST. Winners will receive a congratulatory email from me later that day, and the first names of winners will be displayed in this post on the Rafflecopter widgets!
1. Grand Prize: A “Lindsey Special” Rodger’s Pen Box Oblique Pen
My very favorite pen in the world is a Bolivian Rosewood oblique pen that’s fitted for a Brause EF66 nib. It was handmade for me by Rodger Mayeda, who creates gorgeous artisan writing instruments. It’s almost impossible to get a “Rodger pen” because the time required to make each pen limits their production! Still, I thought I’d go out on a limb and ask Rodger if he’d be willing to contribute a pen to this giveaway. Happily, the answer was yes! The winner of this prize will receive a beautiful Bolivian Rosewood right oblique pen fitted for a Brause EF66 nib. You can enter to win this prize below:
2. “Scholarship” to the Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy Online Course + All Needed Supplies
I can’t think of a better way to kick off January than by picking up calligraphy! If you win this prize, you’ll receive everything you need to get started. That includes a scholarship to the Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy Online Course and *all* of the supplies required to take it (printed worksheet, straight pen, oblique pen, nib, and ink)! You can enter this giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget below:
3. Amy Style Worksheet Set + Pen/Ink/Nibs/Cloth
The Amy Style calligraphy worksheet set is probably my favorite set for both right- and left-handed learners to start out with. Its lack of slant makes it uniquely approachable, which is why I wanted to include it in this giveaway set! The winner of this prize will win a fun set of calligraphy supplies, including:
- Printed Amy Style calligraphy worksheet set
- Tachikawa T40 pen
- Walker’s Copperplate Ink (courtesy of Scribblers)
- Nikko G nib
- Brause EF66 nib
- 100% cotton vintage napkin (for cleaning your nibs)

The Pearl Colors palette provides a variety of glittery, opaque colors that you can use on dark- or light-colored papers! You can enter to win this palette below:
5. Set of Pens + Nibs
You can never have too many pens and nibs! If you’re looking to beef up your collection, then I’m crossing my fingers that you win this prize! This giveaway offers up a set that includes the following:
- One Tachikawa T40 Straight Holder (you can read about it in this blog post)
- One Hand-Turned Oblique Holder (you can read about it in this blog post)
- A set of the following nibs: 2 Nikko Gs, 2 Brause EF66s, 2 Brause Roses, 2 Leonardt Principals

Alright! Today is Christmas, but I have a feeling you’ll be seeing this post sometime after that. If that’s the case, I hope you had a very merry holiday! Thanks very much for participating in the giveaways, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Happy New Year!
