    The first issue of our re-design mailed to subscribers on Monday. I know you probably don't have it yet, but we're all eager to hear what you think of the new look. Don't be shy - good or bad - as long as it's constructive! Let us know which projects you liked best so we can look for more along those lines to keep you happy!

    Not fair,

    That's just teasing us so that we wait impatiently for the mailman for the next 6-8 weeks

        The anticipation of any new issue creates quite a stir, this one more than previous ones I am sure.
        The little sneak preview I saw looks wonderful.
        I can't wait.
        The magazine seems to draw a parallel to our scrolling abilities, they grow hand in hand.

        Lets hope the mail gets here on time

          Shannon you and the rest of the team are brave souls asking for comments.
          I suspect that with the exception of a few grumps out there that don't like change of any sort, the comments will be positive.
          While I am at it I recently renewed for 2 years so that I could get the supper patterns, what is a typical delivery time for that? Not that I have time to cut wood.

            New mag look

            Shannon-

            Well, I can't wait to get mine. I love the magazine and all that is in it. I hope it won't get too far from scrolling,tho. From the write up I read it sounds real exciting. Bring it on!

              Rolf - it generally takes 4-6 weeks to receive the pattern pack. They ship out by bulk mail so it takes a little longer than standard mail would. We're only in PA so it may not take as long to get to you.

                I GOT MINE TODAY!! I was so anxious I could hardly wait to put my glasses on and look at it! You just made a great magazine better. I really like the smaller size as it will now fit in the plastic covers I put all of my magazines in. I like the general information in the front of the magazine. It is rather intimidating for a new scroll sawer to open a magazine and on the first few pages are pictures and patterns and after looking at them for a few minutes and reading the instructions, they would say "yeah, right" and put down the magazine and never pick it back up again. Now, after reading the basic information and then looking at the patterns, they would now say "I can do that it isn't so hard after all!!" The magazine seems to "flow" better. And I was really impressed with the Christmas items! And it's only July!! My only complaint is, I wish I had the Christmas items that will be in the next magazine now. By the time I get them I will be well into my shows and probably won't have time to make but a few for this year. Perhaps next year we can have more Christmas Items in July? and my tired eyes thank you for the larger print!! All in all GREAT JOB!!!

                  Oh just wonderful!This is worse than when we were children on Christmas morning,waiting for the magic word from our parents that it was ok to get up!ARRGH! Here we sit now,tapping our feet,alternating between drumming our fingers and wrenching our hands,waiting (im)patiently and daring not blink, for fear that we will miss the mailmans' arrival.OOOO- THERE HE IS! OH NO---He didn't stop!

                      I received the Ultimate pattern pack Saturday. My list of projects to do has just increased significantly. My wife picked out a few things that she really likes. Now I am looking forward to getting the SSW magazine.

                      A Big Thank you to all of the people who contribute the designs and the hard work required to get it published and in our anxious hands.

                        Mine came in the mail today, but I haven't had a chance to look at it.

                          I was looking for a copy when I was down in the good old USA today. I checked the biggest magazine racks in Sandpoint , Idaho but it hasn't arrived there yet . Maybe it will reach that far north by time I go back next time probably in another couple weeks.

                            I must say that I was a little disappointed. I love the magazine, There were only about three things that I would even consider cutting.I guess not all issues are going to be a winner for all of us.There are many beutiful {sp} things in it. Just not alot of the the projects would I ever care to do. I guess thats why I also get the other scrollsaw mag for things to do.

                              Well, luckily for me, this issue didnt get lost in the mail. Although I will admit, I havent had time read it cover to cover, I did give it a thumbing through a couple times. As for the cover look... very good. I noticed today at Sprawl-mart the magazine display (which doesnt carry SSWC), the magazines that stick out, with the brighter covers tend to draw the eye more, and this cover is much brighter and better looking then the other scrolling mag currently on the racks, so its a plus. The cover project is really nice, although for me, I wouldnt use leaves in the top, but some other shape, but the corner joints are great! There are admittedly many patterns in the issue I dont care to much about, but volkers shadowbox is great, and Sues backpack is just so creative and cool, I will do that. I will do it, then wish I could get mine to look as good as hers does! The punkins... well, the design is neat, but why not make it into something with a light bulb hidden inside, the light shining through the eyes and such. Thats what I will do, but its way down on the list.The leaping whitetail is nice..maybe someday.I like the witches brew, but cant paint worth a crap, and theres no directions for getting such a nice background, so i'll pass on it. I dont care for the chair, but i am opinionated (long winded too huh?) There is the ebonizing artical that will help out a lot, as that topic on here has been discussed at length a time or two recently. I wasnt to impressed with the leafs or the ornaments, but at least the John Nelson patterns didnt have that big fat hard to accuratly follow line, like the project in the UPC (ultimate pattern collection). My favorite project.... the intarsia family tree. Kathy is outstanding. I am still trying to get up the nerve to do the holly wreath from a long past issue, now she sticks this one out there to hurry me along! Good job Kathy! And, by the way...if Kathy reads this thread... I havent looked for the fox yet, but spent time looking at the tree pictures, wondering which was you...and, I am guessing second one up from the bottom!!!
                              There are tons more patterns in the issue than I talked about, but times runnin out, fireworks in a little while. To sum it up.. the issue looks great, seems to be laid out easily and efficiently, and exceeded my expectations of a worthwhile magazine. Keep up the good work,I appreciate it! Also, thank you for asking for input! Dale
