When new members join the Club we send them a sequence of introduction emailsto let them know about the Club and all the information and products on our websites. We have recently extended this sequence to cover a lot of the new information on the site and if you are a long-time member you will also get to see the new emails so you don't miss out. This may mean that you get both those emails and also our monthly newsletter quite close to each other occasionally but we hope you find the all useful.
We had a very busy time on 13th August and the Left handers Club message and our information on teachers and left-handed children was spread far and wide.You can see some of our initial notes on coverage for Left Handers Day using the link below and it includes recordings of interviews with Lauren talking on Radio Sussex with a teacher's representative and Keith on Radio Winnipeg, Canada and Voice of Russia that you may find interesting.
We have now produced the survey document that we would like parents to pass to their children's teachers and also a system where you can enter the responses and any supporting documents and web links you find into an online form. We will collate all the information and produce a summary that will then be the basis for producing our own guidance notes for teachers incorporating current best practice as well as our own content and ideas.
The survey form covers:
It will be fascinating to see the responses to this survey and we are sure it will be a huge step forwards in getting some agreed guidance for teachers in place.
So, if you are a parent of a left-handed child or are involved in teaching or education in any way:
Thank you for your help with this valuable exercise.
We have just taken delivery of three new ranges of left-handed cartridge pens from a well established German manufacturer. They all have specially designed fully left-handed nibs that have the ball at the end rounded in our direction and the split in the nib set to give good ink flow as you push the nib across the page and the left half of the nib is pushed onto the paper.
All of these new pens have a specially made Iridium nib stamped with “L” to show it is the fully left-handed version and they all have click on caps. They all take the standard 35mm half-size ink cartridge. The pens are supplied with one ink cartridge in the body and a dummy cartridge in the nib unit – switch them over or insert a spare cartridge upside down in the body to keep the live cartridge in place.
Use the links above to find out more and order your pens or you can see our full range of left-handed pens plus our videos on writing left-handed here.
