    I would like to know if there are any new classes for beginners starting up in the next few months in the suburbs just south of Chicago, ILL. Best near Tinley Park, Orland Park, Palos Heights,Palos Hills,Oak Lawn, or Hickory Hills. Thanks, Bill

    Have you tried the adult education classes at night at local high schools? That's where my husband and I started wood working.

      If you Have a Woodcraft store near by, they usually have classes.

        Hi,

        I don't know of any classes on the south side of Chicago, but you are welcome to come meet the Chicagoland Scrollers. Perhaps someone in that group can help you get started. Our next meeting is January 24 from 1 to 3 PM. We meet in the Hobby Lobby at the corner of Cass and Ogden in Westmont.

        We have members from all over the Chicagoland area. You will have the chance to meet a great bunch of folks who are all avid scrollers. Hope to see you there.

        Pat L.

          Cute Pattern.
          I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

          No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
