  • I have been wondering if there is a high and a low...

    Hi all,

    I have been wondering if there is a high and a low season for scroll saw. When do scrollers work more and when less? In my case there is no real difference along the year since I only scroll my designs to illustrate my web and that happens more or less every two or three months in average.

    Well that depends on if you do the craft show circuit and when you do them. Usually these are in the fall so most of the scrolling is done torwards the fall or I like to use the winter to stock up product again. I also like to work on new projects in the winter. Not much to do outside so this is a great time at least for me. Come spring and summer there are other things to do than scroll. That is why I do not think I could make this a serious business thing. I like to do other things.

      I think there are seasonal influences because of themes that occur at different times of the year. For instance, in October I ususally find myself up to my eyeballs in Christmas projects.

      Weather will also play a part if you don't have a well lit, warm workshop to use in the winter - brrrrr!

        Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

        Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

        Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

        I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
