News, new patterns, and videos of the week

I’m pretty busy with the preparation for the seminar in Chicago. In this workshop, we will be creating a couple of really nice pieces of tangled art! No matter what you expect, I can guarantee you that you will be surprised 🙂

If you haven’t booked yet, here is the link again 🙂

Since the last newsletter, I also posted Practice Sheets ready for download.

You may have noticed a bunch of new pattern designers making their debut. This is due to the online workshop we are doing right now. You can still join!

Pattern Designer Group on Facebook

No prior experience is necessary!

You learn:

  • how to create a pattern.
  • how to create step-by-step instructions.
  • how to deconstruct a pattern.
  • what is required in the artwork that is posted with the step-out.
  • how to submit a pattern.

You will also learn by reading all the comments made on new pattern submissions, and together help me teach others by adding your own comments.

Last week I did a poll to find out how many tanglers use the templates that we post each week. It turned out that a lot of people don’t even know they exist! Every time I do a poll in our Facebook group I react to the results. And it will be no different this time 😉 For now, the Templates will stay right where they are, but it is obvious that it’s time to make some changes. Linda Roberts Kennedy inspired me to come up with something a little different. This idea combined with the need to change the Template section is another little project I will be working on next week.

As you can see, running the website is really a full-time job. A job that I enjoy thoroughly! Quite often I get private messages from people that touch me deeply. How lucky am I for being able to bring a little happiness into people’s lives that live thousands of miles away!

And with that being said, it’s back to work!

Have a lovely weekend! Enjoy Inktober 🙂

    I have loved your site for years. I am unable to make your Chicago conference, but hope you will consider doing another one and getting the word out even earlier.

    Good luck. I know you will have an inspirational time!!
