BTW – If you haven’t received your guide yet, I am getting a few error messages that the email can’t be delivered because the user’s email box is full. addresses are a total failure, including my own EMPTY account. Tomorrow I will be emailing those affected to get an alternate email address so I can get you the Guide.

    You have done an amazing job both with the website and the guide. The guide should be a book (print and e-book) and should be on Amazon. It’s better than some of the books on Zentangle. I will continue to support your site in whatever way I can, monetarily, and by sending everyone I can to you. Zentangle is changing my life and you are helping that transformation, so thank you.

    Hi, I am brand new to this and I’m wondering if it is still possible to get The TANGLE GUIDE?

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      Welcome, Brenda! And yes my TANGLE GUIDE is still available – visit the “Support TanglePatterns” page for details.

    Hi Linda,
    First let me say, I love the name. It’s also my mom’s and she’s pretty wonderful too!

    I have really enjoyed the Tangle Patterns guide. It’s worth SO much more than the donation! I’ve already made my donation for the 2013 guide as well. Do you have any idea when that will go out? I’m too excited for it!! Just got my Official Zentangle Kit and have already ordered more tiles! You rock!!

    Thanks so much for your hard work,

  • Cindy T

    I just read the update for the 2013 Tangle guide and that your estimated release date is January 12th.

    Received my tiles in the mail today! Can’t wait to get started!
    Thanks again!

  • Mary

    Just downloaded the 2013 Guide. Brilliantly done – I love it!!
