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.

Number of patterns so far: 1457.5

Pattern of the Month - June

June brings us the Summer Solstice and with it the shortest night of the year. After this the night once again get longer. And that is this month's Prime Ministerial theme: Knights. I know, it was a terrible segué!

Many of Canada' first Prime Ministers were knights with a title of "Sir" and everything. In fact, of Canada's first 8 Prime Ministers, 7 were knights, with number 2, Alexander MacKenzie, being the lone standout.

This month's featured Prime Ministers are Sir John Thompson (4th) and Sir Robert Borden (8th). As an additional piece of trivia, the face on the Canadian $100 bill is Sir Robert Borden.

Sir John Thompson - 4th Prime Minister

Sir Robert Borden - 8th Prime Minister
