  • 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!

        Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
        Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

        I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

        I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

        The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

        Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
