It’s that time of year: Please help me keep TanglePatterns online for another year?

TanglePatterns AngelHello my tangling friends.

As we begin this fundraising appeal to ensure TanglePatterns keeps going for another great year, I first want to say a huge, heartfelt “THANK YOU” to its current patrons.

I love you guys! You are my invaluable TanglePatterns Angels. I simply couldn’t continue to do this and keep up the site’s level of service without your loyal and amazing support. I appreciate you so much and give thanks for you each and every day.

It’s no secret that times are tough for a lot of us these days, especially we pensioners as inflation has been driving up the cost of anything and everything. The site’s operating costs increase every year and are such that I have no choice but to ask for your financial assistance.

Your donations are gratefully accepted at any time of the year, however it takes this concerted fundraising campaign each November to know if I can pay the bills for the coming year. Your donations now will help underwrite the operating costs of running the website and keep this one-of-a-kind Zentangle® resource going for another inspirational year. Your donations are crucial to the sustainability of

While I invest all my time and energy in offering sparks for your creative imagination and it’s truly my privilege and pleasure to serve you, it is a full time endeavor just keeping the content coming. It’s just me folks. All I ask is for you to invest a little to help me continue to keep TanglePatterns online and functioning smoothly for all of us.

I hope you’ll help? This only takes a minute. Your contribution makes a huge difference and is deeply appreciated, not only by me but also by our tangling friends who aren’t aren’t in a position to help financially and depend on this resource for their mental health. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Linda you are truly a work of art yourself to be able to keep this site going. I know I personally use it on a daily basis and happily will donate to keep it alive. God bless you and keep you going like an Energizer Bunny.

    Thank you for all you do for the Zentangle community. We would be lost without you and this resource! Happy to contribute ?.

  • Sue Zanker

    I know heaps of tanglers depend on Linda and the wonderful site she gives to us all so freely! I have been dependent on her site since February 2012 so I for one, would feel bereft without it. I too am an aged pensioner, who counts every penny to eat well each week and sometimes it IS. a battle. However, I am truly happy to “make room” in my life to give a little space for tangling. I have arranged (and it is EASY to do ) to have a small donation automatically sent monthly to TanglePatterns to help, (albeit in a small way). Just think, if all the people who use this wonderful source of inspiration gave even just the price of a cup of coffee, or a magazine or a block of chocolate, think what a difference that would make.
    Don’t just say “…what a good idea….” and turn the page……arrange it now and continue to enjoy TanglePatterns, please!
    (By the way, I really DO exist, I really AM a tangler and I really DO depend and need tangling. I am NOT a professional advertiser (as one person accused on my own FB page last year).

      I was wondering just this morning if others also give a small monthly donation to Linda. Thank you for sharing that you do ?. As a member of the “aged-pensioner” community, I also am careful as to where my money goes. I’ve been using this site since 2018 and is very worthy of my contribution! I hope others consider donating this way as well?

  • Dear Linda,
    i made my humble contribution today. Hope it helps.
    Thank you for all the work to keep up and running. It is my favorite place to go too if in doubt about a pattern.
    Greetings from Belgium.

  • Micaela

    Happy to make a contribution as fare as this site Is so precious to me. Have a nice day! Micaela

  • Morgan Blake

    Happy to help with my humble donation. Your great work helps so many people. I would be lost with this brilliant website. Much love XXX

  • Barbara Johnson

    This site is a valuable resource for tanglers, and we would all be lost if it went away. Consider purchasing the yearly e-book. It is a great repository of tangles, to have on hand. You can download it to your phone or tablet, and if you are at a class, or retreat, you can have all of the tangles at your disposal. Very handy. I purchase it every year. Every little bit helps.

  • Bette Abdu

    Thank you for all you do. I hope all tanglers who use your site will chip in.
