Marly had put word out on Social Media that she would like to have Tamara on to talk about Moogly and incidentally Tamara had learned a lot from Marly, too, and still they look forward to meeting in person! Tamara worked on commission crafting and started her blog to promote that. Her logo with the Octopus is the envy of anyone who is multi-craftural (not confined to one craft) and the word MOOGLY came from her daughter who used this to describe things unstable. Tamara finds that her time to craft is evenings and weekends mostly, but clearly thinks about it all day and probably dreams about it, too, it seems. Her blog came from her desire to share what she was working on, progressed to sharing her patterns and then to sharing techniques. She shared that her favorite book is a Stitch Dictionary because it uses charts! The ladies discussed the differences and benefits of FREE verses PAID patterns for themselves as designers and as customers, a lot of which depends on the time involved in putting the designs together, how many people had to be drawn in to help in the way of design advice and testers.
Tamara (with a little help from her family and friends) has a wonderful website, please take a moment to check it out and tell them Marly sent you. (Tell Tamara she did an awesome job today… This was her first appearance on the Yarn Thing, we hope she will come back!)
