I discovered Everlace Design completely by accident in my search for a calligrapher for my upcoming wedding. I was immediately impressed by Catherine's responsiveness to my emails and how detail-oriented she seemed to be. Her Instagram account showcases her beautiful work! Once we sorted out all of the details, Catherine put together a quote for our wedding calligraphy that was entirely reasonable, and I'm positive that her work will be stunning. (**I will add to this review after our wedding!**)
Once I learned Catherine also teaches calligraphy classes, I signed up myself, my partner, and our friend for her workshop. The class was incredibly enjoyable! We received all of the necessary materials needed for calligraphy (nibs, base, ink, workbook, etc.), and we got to take everything home to continue our practice. Catherine was extremely patient in guiding us through learning the basics and beginnings of modern calligraphy.
I would highly recommend both Catherine's calligraphy workshops as well as her art for your special occasions!

Catherine is a delight to work with. She's very talented in her craft and has all the tools to make a project/transaction a pleasure. I hired Everlace Design to address envelopes for a Bridal Shower. She did an excellent job producing them in just one week. I wasn't sure of the style of calligraphy that I wanted, so she provided a couple of samples for my review. All were great, but I had fun making the decision.
I'd highly recommend Catherine at Everlace Design. She's become my go-to vendor whenever I need calligraphy services.

Where do I even start?! Catherine was such a pleasure to work with. I discovered her talented calligraphy skills on Instagram. I reached out to her less than eight weeks before my wedding to ask her for help with LITERALLY everything. I didn't even know what I needed, but I knew I needed her special touches for my wedding. I told her I wanted to make customize invitations for my wedding dinner, next thing you know I was asking her to create a wedding signage and place cards for dinner.
She was so quick to respond to me when I needed her opinion (she even help with the design on my wedding website) and dedicated herself 110% to me in such a short time notice. My husband, friends, and family loved the invitation cards and signage. I will definitely be using her services for future events. She is your go-to girl!

If you’re looking for a calligrapher or a calligraphy class look no further than Catherine, Everlace Design Co. I took a beginner calligraphy class here and had an amazing time. All tools and supplies are included and the pricing is super fair as you bring all your tools home + some great notebooks she’s made for you to practice at home. This was my first time picking up a calligraphy pen and though others in my class were more seasoned, she took the time to answer my many questions, demonstrate tricks and rewriting lettering I had trouble with. Her work is beautiful so if it’s a calligrapher you need, Catherine has got you covered. From typical media like paper to acrylic to leather and mirrors, her lettering is effortless and elegant.

I attended Catherine’s beginner’s calligraphy workshop and it was SO worth it! Such a great private workshop that she was able to guide us and teach us techniques while allowing us to find/use our creativity. I finished the workshop feeling confident and excited to do more calligraphy. It does not stop there! Catherine is VERY generous with giving suggestions/tips. Easy to contact and SUPER FRIENDLY! Highly recommend taking her workshop for first-timers and second-timers!
