TanglePatterns Turns 14 Today

Greetings my tangling friends! Just dropping in to share this Tangleversary occasion with you …

Today marks the 14th year of TanglePatterns coming to your inbox beginning on May 4, 2010.

That’s over 700 weeks of fabulous tangle inspiration, fun tutorials, inspirational stories  … and more.

We’ve been through a lot together, including a truly terrible pandemic. Yet we tangle on and that’s what gets us through.

My heartfelt gratitude for your love, encouragement and thoughtful support over all these years and — heaven willing — many more to come.

May the 4th be with you! Carry on, have cake … 🙂
