For more decades than a stick can shake at, Mrs. Collins’s wit and knowledge of arcane and contemporary print technology continue to please clients, gratify friends, and enrich those lucky enough to be mentored by her. Through the Fundamental Letters series of 2-hour sessions, she teaches small, focused classes in creating monograms, ciphers, correct (and inventive) stationery use, and all things fundamental to letter writing. New for 2017 are longer form instruction. These include a two-day collaboration with Bowne & Co. Stationers which is part of South Street Seaport Museum, New York City, and upcoming two-day entrepreneurship class in New Orleans.
