Details of The Tangle Tour ’23 coming in the weeks ahead. But it should be noted that the use of the word “tangle” should not push people to think these events are connected to the world-wide home art craze known as Zen-tangle, but the art work associated with the tour was created my Jan Moody, who IS a part of that world-wide craze!

Already, The Tangle Tour of ’24 is in the planning stages. Help me decide: Should I take the northern swing (Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Indianapolis, Springfield, and St. Louis. Or should I plan a southern swing (St. Simons Island, Savanah, Atlanta, Birmingham, Jackson, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans)?
(The MH conference has been postponed until 2024.)
