We are kicking off SSLetters 2019 with an adventure to nearby Takoma Park! This month's theme is CRUNCHY, inspired by our hippie-friendly location. We'll letter about all the things we love about the free spirit life.

Takoma Beverage Company is located at 6917 Laurel Ave, Takoma Park, MD 20912.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING? Bring your favorite doodle supplies [paper + pens + paints + etc]. We will also have some paper on-hand as well as our PEN SWAP BOX for you to test out different style pens for your drawings.

WHAT IS THIS? The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society of Silver Spring is a free monthly gathering for hand lettering enthusiasts to letter in company. Every month has a theme to jog the creative juices, but we would never dare limit your creativity to the theme! Come make new friends, swap pen and paper secrets and meet other creatives in your community.

WHERE ARE THE MEETINGS? Currently we are rotating locations around DTSS and nearby areas each month. January's meeting will be held at Takoma Beverage Company in Takoma Park.

WHERE CAN I PARK? There is a public lot located behind Suntrust Bank at the intersection of Carroll and Laurel Avenue for customer parking.

WANT TO GIVE BACK? Support the society by getting more involved! Join our mailing list for updates. Follow @SSLetters on Twitter + Instagram, and don't forget to use #SSLETTERS to share your lettering even between meetings & brag about your skillz! We'll repost on our channels, too! You can also help keep our hand lettering community alive with a donation today! Funds go towards putting on our community projects and providing materials at meetings. The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society is a completely volunteer based organization because we love our community. (That means you!) <3
