  • Retired scroll saw instructor...

    Hello all,
    Decided to get on this as soon as I saw it. I intend to "pop" in on a regular basis from now on.

    I instructed Scrolling all over the U.S. and Canada for 15 years, and loved every minute of it. I have missed the friendship of all those I came in contact with.

    I used to own 3 Bears workshop in Citrus Heights Ca., but moved to Sparks NV. when I retired.

    I still occasionally do articles/ projects for Fox Chapel. .In fact they published my 2nd book. . My video is still available through Advanced Machinery in Delaware, but my 3 instruction/pattern books are out of publication.

    I am so happy to find this group!!! Would love to hear from you..

                        When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                              You are so welcome Chuck. It made me feel so good to know I helped you get started, and that your still scrolling!! Fantastic! I am really sure if I reply to each message of welcome separately, or just once. Can you let me know how this works? I have had so many wonderful welcomes from everyone, and I would like to acknowledge them all. For the record, I got my password wrong and could not get back in here, that is what has taken me so long to reply at all. Thanks in advance for your help here.....Joanne
