Anyway, you can listen to the podcast on Tiffany's website. I hope you enjoy it!
Pattern Camp is looming closer and closer, my friends…. are you signed up? Hundreds of you are so far, and I can feel the excitement building! It's shaping up to be a big, creative, colorful group, and I *can't wait* to see what everyone creates.
If you want to join up with a supportive community of like-minded creative souls, all learning to create stunning repeat patterns together, this is your place.
The private classroom area will open on Monday, September 29th, where you'll have access to an Illustrator Tools Primer video, a Photoshop Tools Primer video, our private Facebook and Flickr groups, 4 video interviews with inspirational surface pattern designers, and more! Then class begins on October 11th.
You can find out more about the course and if it is for you right here.
ps - in case you missed it, I created a short, informative video about the course! Here it is:

Hope to see you in class!
Pattern Camp registration is officially open! There's a special discount price, too, through this Sunday September 14. Read on!
