Marie Coleman-Johns

Hi, I'm Marie - the calligrapher and owner of Maiden September. I operate a full-service calligraphy studio serving local clients in Delaware, Maryland, and Southeastern Pennsylvania, as well as online clients nationwide. My services include wedding calligraphy, custom signage, and even handmade wood wine racks.

One of the first questions I receive from clients is how I got into calligraphy. As a kid, I was obsessed with handwriting, and my mom was frustrated that I wrote on every piece of paper in the house. So when I was in 7th or 8th grade, she bought me my first calligraphy set for Christmas.

Through the years, I dabbled with it off and on, but finally made a commitment to really hone my craft in January 2017. Since then, I opened my own calligraphy studio and have been working for individual clients - mostly for weddings and special events. 

When I'm not in the studio, I'm spending time with my amazing hubby, aka Mr. September, (the guy who makes those awesome wine racks!), and our growing brood of pets which includes three cats and the world's cutest dog (no seriously, he's insanely adorable). Outside of calligraphy, my favorite hobbies are kayaking and searching for the best tacos in all the land.
