  1. That’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time.
    I love the ”handwritten” word. Writing by hand is becoming a lost art. And, cursive writing is not even taught in the schools anymore.
    I will be a frequent visitor to this much needed establishment.
    🖌 I hope your opening is grand!

  2. My daughter is autistic and she struggled with printing but she excelled at cursive because it was more “fluid” and she found it so much easier than “drawing” individual letters. This is super exciting to me and I’m hopeful that this will be a new favorite place for her to visit. I still write handwritten notes to people and I consider it a dying art. I can’t wait to share experience with her! My daughter is so amazing and creative I truly believe this will be a fine addition to Mactown’s square. Welcome Graphite
