Can I give 10 stars? 5 is not enough for Lisa, the owner of Scribble Savvy Calligraphy. I started taking private lessons with Lisa about eight months ago, and 1. even if I never become as good as an artist as her, this has been well worth the investment and 2. she's a caring, very encouraging, and really patient teacher. One of the best teachers I've ever had. My lessons are sometimes in person, sometimes remote. Naturally I prefer in person; however, Lisa has the capabilities to teach remotely just as well as in person. The only thing you'll miss is seeing her sweet dog, Annie! You'll still receive a quality, professional lesson.
Sometimes I get lucky and am able to see jobs or commissions she is currently working on - and I'm blown away by her talent. But I'm even more impressed with her humility.
Lisa, owner of Scribble Savvy Calligraphy, is such a wonderfully creative and precise artist! I commissioned her to decorate some frames for my son, and they turned out beautifully! She pays such great attention to detail, from matching the colors of lettering to the frame mat, to the centering of each word across the frame. I am already thinking about what I would like for her to createfor me next... That's how much I love her work!
I was referred to Lisa of Scribble Savvy by The Dandelion Patch in McLean, and I am so glad I came across her. Not only is her work beautiful, but she is a just lovely to work with. As someone getting married in a week her kindness, compassion, and flexibility were incredibly appreciated, especially since I hired her in a pinch. Thank you for everything, Lisa!
Lisa, the owner of Scribble Savvy, is a fabulous artist that can create anything. I commissioned Lisa to create two of my niece’s favorite quotes from Pride and Prejudice. She presented me with options and worked with me to create a most beautiful piece. She is very creative, has great attention to detail and overall fun to work with. I highly recommend Lisa and will not hesitate to recommend her and will work with her again.
What a tremendous artist!! Lisa took a rough idea for a journal heading, and turned it into a magnificent opening page for the journal.
Lisa is an expert at producing exactly what you want, and absolutely gifted at creating superb outcomes from basic ideas. She is talented, detail oriented and truly focused on customer satisfaction. An accomplished artisan who is fun to work with!
Lisa is talented, professsional and above all else a perfectionist. Ever since my daugher was litle she never liked her name, said it was boring, dry and always wanted to change it. So for my daughter's 16th birthday I commissioned Lisa to create something unique and special to showcase my daughter's beautiful name, Nicole. What Lisa created was beyond amazing. The colors, size, design, Bible verse, and incorporating her nickname "Bird" are all from Lisa's imagination. The best part was watching tears come to my daughter's eyes when she opened her gift and saw how beautiful her name really is. Lisa was fantastic to work with and I highly recommend her for any calligraphy needs!
Lisa was very helpful and friendly and most importantly did the work for me with precision and style! Scribble Savvy is catchy name and accurate to a T:)
I got married in July 2020 and hired Scribble Savvy to address my wedding invitations. I had ordered my invites online preprinted and I really wanted them to have a special touch. All I can say is WOW! I was blown away by the beauty and artistic technique of the handwritten words. The calligraphy made each card come to life. They felt so personalized in a world full of "typed" everything! I received so many compliments on how beautiful they were. Many guest even saved them! I highly recommend using Lisa if you are considering any type of personalized handwritten piece. She is wonderfully creative and will work with you on different ideas and styles to use her craft to create your own personal work of art.
Lisa is truly a phenomenal artist!! Her calligraphy is done with such passion, grace and her whole heart.
I am blessed to have several of her pieces in our home to admire each day.
She had conspired with my husband on several surprise pieces for me. Each one is a true work of art!!
I’m beyond grateful to display her work in our home. Truly a special person to work with and plan a fabulous work of art with.
I have known Lisa for a long time. She is one of the kindest, gentlest and most caring people I know. When Lisa started Scribble Savvy, I knew she would put her whole heart into it to make it a success. I started private lessons with Lisa pre-pandemic and they continue today. First Copperplate, and more recently, Italic. She is a phenomenal teacher; through, patient and encouraging. Even when I think my work looks terrible, Lisa always highlights what I am doing well.
Lisa is also a very gifted and talented artist. Last year, she did a pencil portrait of my granddaughter that was a Christmas gift for my son and daughter-in-law. Getting the likeness on a portrait is very difficult, but Lisa got it spot on.
I could go on and on, but whether your are interested in private lessons, calligraphy or other commissions, you will not be disappointed.

"Lisa is an inspiration. Seeing her beautiful work come to life reignited my childhood passion for calligraphy. I have taken several courses with Lisa over the past year -- both group and private lessons -- and have gained such confidence using calligraphy. Lisa teaches with purpose and perfection and has the most calming voice while providing instruction. I was shocked to see my improvement over several weeks just based on her constructive feedback. I can't wait to learn more from Lisa or, rather, just have her do the work for me because it is that good! Lisa is wonderfully creative with a fun sense of humor!"
For our daughter’s 11th birthday, we were looking for a unique birthday party idea. We learned about Scribble Savvy and found the unique party we were looking for! It was so much fun! Lisa was phenomenal with the girls and taught them a surprising amount about calligraphy during the lesson. The project was a very sturdy bookmark done in brush script - the girls loved it as it was practical and an enjoyable project! The girls said it was the most fun and unique birthday party they’d been to, and my daughter absolutely loved it!

Are you thinking of trying to learn calligraphy but not sure you can do it? Learning calligraphy has been a lifelong dream of mine, and because of Lisa Hutchinson, it is a dream come true! Lisa is a gifted calligrapher who has a heart for teaching it to others, as well as never-ending patience! Her teaching style is encouraging, relaxing and so enjoyable. She makes learning calligraphy such fun! We started off with the Foundational hand and I loved it so much I signed up for more- we have covered Uncial, Italic, and now she's teaching me beautiful Copperplate! What seemed impossible became a reality under Lisa's excellent example and teaching. I cannot recommend her classes more highly!
I have admired my mom's artistic talent ever since I can remember, and I feel so privileged to see her come alive in this new calling. Her passion for calligraphy is contagious in and outside of the classroom, and her love of teaching is so palpable. I would imagine not every kid would enjoy having their parent as their teacher, but for me it has been nothing but a joy. Through her patience, skill, and endless encouragement, I am proud of the calligrapher I have become. I can't possibly recommend Lisa highly enough for her immense talent and dedication to blessing others through it.

Lisa created beautiful place cards for my husband's 50th birthday celebration. Her attention to detail and beautiful artwork brought elegance and warmth to each place setting. We were so pleased with the quality of the product, timeliness of delivery, and professionalism of our interactions. The place cards were a "memory maker" and are on display in our china cabinet to date.
Ms. Lisa's calligraphy class was fun and engaging. I loved it! Everything was super organized. She explained each new concept thoroughly. I have a new creative and useful skill thanks to Ms. Lisa!
I took calligraphy classes from Lisa at Scribble Savvy for over a year (before and during the pandemic). Once I got started, I was hooked! I learned so much in my classes. I felt the pace was just right. Lisa is a very thoughtful teacher who puts a lot of effort and time into her teaching. Her lessons were engaging, useful, and she is so patient and always eager to help. She really is amazing at what she does and her passion and dedication is beyond words. I give her classes 5 stars and would recommend her highly to anyone at any age!
Lisa is an amazingly talented calligraphy teacher who taught my 12 year old daughter. Lisa was kind, patient, positive, communicated very well and really helped my daughter feel comfortable learning a new skill. I highly recommend Lisa!
