 Important information about your subscriptions:

If you signed up for all three newsletters (TanglePatterns, Comments, Weekly Digest), you will receive an email to confirm each one because they are separate subscriptions and must be confirmed individually.

  • TanglePatterns – this is the main newsletter where you receive instant notification of new tangles posted (Weekdays), new strings (Saturdays), and newsy Zentangle tutorials and news (as it happens)
  • Comments – you will receive a daily summary of any comments posted on the tangles, this is a good way to find tangles you haven’t seen before and tips from other tanglers
  • Weekly Digest – this newsletter comes out once a week on Sunday and contains links to all of the posts from the previous week

Changing your email address:

If you change your email address in the future, remember to use the “Change your preferences” link at the end of any email so you don’t miss anything.

Likewise when you go on vacation you can use that same link to PAUSE your subscription until your return.

A note about unsubscribing:

Interests change, I get that. If at some future point you wish to stop receiving TanglePatterns newsletters … All electronic subscriptions you sign up for, regardless of where they come from, contain the links to UNSUBSCRIBE at the end of every email you receive.

If you subscribed to all three newsletters (Daily, Comments, Weekly Digest) remember that each one is a separate subscription and must be unsubscribed individually. Use your UNSUBSCRIBE link at the end of the email subscription you wish to remove yourself from.
