    Need Canadian members help, please

    I came across a yellow graphite #2 pencil somewhere a while ago and have been using it in my studio and office. I LOVE, love, love it! The conundrum....I can not locate the brand anywhere, with the exception of some mention of Canada, school supplies, and, perhaps, a bankruptcy/abandonment-of-business issue.

    I think this is/was a Canadian company. Do any of our Canadian QB members know anything about these pencils: if they are still available, where to buy them, if they'd be willing to buy and send me some (at my expense of course)?

    The #2 lead in these is just very appealing to me and I'd really love to have more of them.

    Thank you so much for your consideration!

    Jan, I will keep an eye open for you, but I don't think I have ever seen them.

    Jan I will check with my LQS Monday night when I go in they have a decent assortment of pencils.

    I just checked my pencils they are graphite but I don't know if they are a #2 or not but they are Fon's and Porter ones I got when I first started quilting a couple of years ago.

    Jan, I will ask around here in western Canada and see if I can find anything for you. Or, at least some info.

    Jan, I checked mine and they are Venus # 2 ..... Hopefully I will get some shopping time at Dollarama , Staples
    and others. Will gladly buy any then email you before I mail them. Live north east of Toronto --more center of country so with all the others that wrote I think we should have the whole 5000 miles covered. I know we have
    members in Newfoundland and Vancouver Island yet to jump in here.

    I found this company - Lovett International Inc 144 Gould Street # 205 Needham Heights, MA 02494-2343
    Phone: (781) 444-1600 Nicole Ma, primary of sales, updated this company profile on 09/17/2012 " is a large importer of school supplies, paper products and writing implements."

    This may be the company that makes your pencil. Hope it helps. meanwhile I'll keep a look out for Lovett #2 pencils.

    Gosh, thank you for that info about the Needham Heights, MA #. I may try it tomorrow.

    But it concerns me a bit with the last name and "importer".....only because I was badly burned ($130 worth) about 5 years ago over a special lamp I ordered and had to return, similar info on the company, lost the refund over it. I've been really careful ordering on line/by phone since.

    I really appreciate all those that are looking for these for me. I am very aware of and have tried all the other brands of pencils that have been mentioned and they are not quite what I want.

    Hugs,

    Lovett is a brand name and is manufactured in Canada and USA. Try searching on the brand name to find local sources of this pencil.

    I just searched on "Lovett pencils" and came up with this link http://www.lovettpromotion.com/onlinestore.html

    They sell all kinds of school/office supplies and list tons of pencils (with pictures) to give it a try.
