With thanks – It’s time to renew your financial support to keep TanglePatterns available to you for another year

TanglePatterns AngelFirst I want to say a huge heartfelt thank you to TanglePatterns’ current patrons. I love you guys! You are my TanglePatterns Angels. I simply couldn’t do this without your generous support and I appreciate you so much.

Each year on November 1st I ask all of the site’s users to help underwrite the operating costs of running the website and keep this one-of-a-kind Zentangle® resource available to you for another year.

Donations are most gratefully accepted any time of the year and there’s an always-accessible big yellow “Click to Support TanglePatterns!” button over there >>>> near the top of the right sidebar to make it really easy.

But in November I need to know that I can pay the bills for the coming year and that’s where you come in now.

To those of you who have subscribed to the site’s free newsletters for many years but have not yet contributed financial support: please, don’t continue ignoring my request for assistance. The site relies on everyone who uses it to support its continued existence. Together, WE keep TanglePatterns going.

Like most of us, asking for financial help is hard and something I wish I didn’t have to do. But the site’s operating costs are such that I must. While TANGLEPATTERNS GUIDE eBook sales are important and really, really appreciated, donations are crucial for sustainability.

When comparing the value you get from TanglePatterns for an entire year of new creative content — week in and week out — to the price of an App subscription, an art class, a book, or a magazine, isn’t this unique Zentangle resource worth at least that much to you?

I invest all my time and energy in offering sparks for your creative imagination and it’s a full time endeavor just keeping the content coming.

I ask that you invest a little to help me continue to keep TanglePatterns and all of its resources available.

This only takes you a minute. Your financial support makes a huge difference and it’s deeply appreciated. Click this secure button or use this secure link.

You don’t have to open an account to use PayPal AND it is totally secure. When you click this secure button and update your cart with your donation, you are given the option of using PayPal or your debit or credit card. There is also a checkbox to make your contribution an automatic monthly payment if you so wish.

When I receive the notice of your donation, or your check in the mail, imagine that I am sending you a HUGE hug through the ether – because I am!

Linda, Thank you for your continued dedication to make the number 1 resource for Zentangle enthusiasts. I very much appreciate your hard work and love your priceless website. Happy Holidays! ~ Angie Gamble, CZT7, by email


Linda, you do an amazing job! Maria and Rick are the spark, but you help keep the flame going. Zentangle wouldn’t be the same without you. Gratefully, Pam A, by email


Like many of you, I have been using Linda’s site since 2012 on a regular basis. I became a regular “donor” some years ago. I do this willingly as Linda does SOOO much for us all.
The easiest way is to arrange through your bank or Paypal for an automatic amount of your choosing to be taken from your account once a month and transferred to her account. It doesn’t have to be a huge amount; I am sure the price of a magazine or a cup of coffee, once a month helps her and honestly you don’t feel it. I am not “rich”, I am a government funded pensioner of 77 from Townsville in Australia and if I can afford to help her, I am quite sure most of the rest of you can too. So let’s show her how much we value her and what she does so willingly for tanglers world wide. (By the way, what I have written here is quite unsolicited!) ~ Sue Z


Linda, your generosity in delivering tangles to “the needy” deserves a medal, but until you get it, pls accept my donation. By “needy” I mean people like me who love having something to look forward to at the end of the day: which for me means paper, pen and tangling. And tangling, means getting into a zone that is unlike anything else, a sea of tranquility in a world of strife :).

You do so much good by sharing tangles, and perhaps you’re actually sharing an aid that helps people stay balanced and sane as well as happy….daily.

That’s it: it’s a daily shot of “happy”.

Could be you’re changing the world, one zentangle at a time. I know you’ve changed mine. Waving from Toronto, Nina


I am endlessly grateful to the understanding (and outstanding!) members of our Zentangle community.

With deepest gratitude and love and huge hugs,

Thank you so much for being a TanglePatterns Angel!

  • Thanks Linda for all you do. There will be a check in the mail soon. Your hard work for all us tangle people is much appreciated. Have a blessed November and stay well and creative.

  • Will be sending a check. Thank you for your wonderful work!

    Hello Linda,

    Thanks, as always, for the reminder that this site does not run itself and that you do work hard to keep it going. I know that I am among thousands that look to this site, your emails and the Tangle Guide for inspiration as well as the step-outs for new and old tangles.

    For myself, it took some time to begin a donation budget. Once it was done, I felt an immense relief knowing that it will help keep this site going for others who cannot donate at this time. I hope that someday, those that cannot do so today will donate when they are able.

    Thank you again for your hard work keeping the tangle fires going!

  • LaJuania Dorman

    I wish my donation could be more, but at least I’m able to donate this amount TWICE a year. I use this website frequently and rely on it as part of my tool bag! Thank you, Linda for all of the time and effort you put into this!

    My PayPal donation has been sent.

  • Kay

    Linda, I’m sorry my donation can’t be more at this time.
    I really can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort that you put in to maintain and keep improving this wonderful site. Apart from the joy it brings to so many, the benefits to mental health is immense, particularly for those, who like myself, suffer from depression, and in these uncertain times of covid, so many more people have experienced this awful disease. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through some of those dark days.
    Much love, Kay xxx

  • Alice Roche
