- Pen Holder -
Speedball Pen Holder - Hobby Lobby does have the Speedball straight Pen Holder that I use for myself and for my calligraphy workshops and workbooks. I recommend any beginner start with this before investing in other types of pen holders.
- Nib/ Calligraphy Kit -
Modern Calligraphy Set by Manuscript - I don't get my nibs locally but I always get asked if there are nibs in Columbia. This calligraphy kit are the only nibs I've seen locally in Columbia, SC that could be used for Modern Calligraphy. Though these are not the nibs I use for my calligraphy workshops or for myself, they are the most similar option and more in line with Modern Calligraphy compared to other calligraphy kits I saw at Hobby Lobby. The pen holder included can be used but I'm always wary of inks included in calligraphy kits from big stores. Most times, they are not the best quality. Not to mention, if you only need the nibs, you'd have to get the whole kit every time for $12.99 when most nibs cost under $2. But if you are looking for nibs locally in Columbia, this is the closest I've found.
