Get ready to check your computer at the door and join us for a lo-tech, hi-tap afternoon! This FREE open house event will introduce typewriter newbies to the old school technology, and typewriter aficionados can bring their own machines and socialize with like-minded “types”. Basics like how to change a ribbon and other typing tips will be offered throughout the afternoon and you’ll be able to use our many of our typewriters to test your typing technique. A typewriter specialist will be on site to evaluate your machine.
Red Zeppelin Productions will be featuring its collection of antique typewriters that were used in the Award-Winning short film, Tyndall Typewriters. All beautifully serviced with some available for sale. A raffle for prizes including a Vintage Typewriter will be offered. Other door prizes will also be available for attendees.
