Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!

Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.

The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.

Pattern of the Month - February - Monsters - Barnabas Collins

Dark Shadows was a gothic soap opera from the late 60's. Not even a year after it started it was in danger of being cancelled. With nothing to lose, they decided to adapt a classic story to their moody little New England town: Dracula. The Collins family's distant ancestor, Barnabas returned after being freed from a crypt in which he'd been trapped for over a century. You see, Barnabas was a vampire.

Played by Hamiltonian Jonathan Frid, Barnabas's villain not only saved the show, he became the first tragic vampire in search of redemption. So many vampires owe a debt to Barnabas, but especially Nick Knight and Angel.

Unfortunately Jonathan Frid died in 2012 after years in theatre and being available for the loyal fans of Dark Shadows. Rest in peace.
