      There are some great beginner patterns here.
      I know there is a hummingbird and a cat pattern, I downloaded both when they were offered as free patterns, This month it is a deer.
      You can buy the whole set very reasonably

        For Fretwork, bookmark the following sites:
        {on the left side of your screen, under heading Scrolling community, go to Other Great Sites, then click on Retailers. All my suggestions are listed there.}

        The Wooden Teddy Bear

        Cherry Tree Toys

        Wildwood Designs

        Berry Basket

        The following are not listed in "Other Great Sites" as far as I know:

        Steebar (

        Peculiar Fretworks Victorian Scroll Saw Patterns.

        And don't forget our friend Pedro over in Spain

        The following are listed under Other Great sites then under Artisans:

        Dirk Bolemen: The Art Factory

        While your are there, click on Arnold Volker's link. Very good stuff, even if the site is in German.

        Rick Hutcheson:

        And I also recommend the Wilcken Brothers.
        (A copy of their catalog can be found on the of Rick Hutcheson's site. Link on Rick's Home Page. Rick only post a copy of the Wilcken's catalog only as a service to the scroller community.)

          Just Wondering...

          Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

          With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

          I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

          Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

          I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

          If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

          Hi Linda, great find...I think.

          Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
