    I am so jealous of all of you who get the chance to go to these shows, picnics, and the Fox Chapel Open House. I live in southern California and haven't seen anything like that out here yet. We have a couple of events during the year where a few craft tables are set up, but that's as close as I get to anything fun associated with scrolling.

    Does anybody know of anything available for us in the southwest? Or maybe we should just start our own annual picnics and get togethers? That would be fun. No, I'm not volunteering in getting this going. I just don't have the time to set something like this up. Maybe when I retire from the Navy in 4 years.

    Oh well. I guess it's time to get back to work.

      There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

        Hi Jim8Mad,

        There is a scrolling event in Phoenix in the spring. SAW held an Expo in Escondido in 2002. I realize that Oregon is a long way to go for you, but there is an annual picnic there on the last Saturday of July.

        There are several scrollsaw clubs in the San Diego area. You can see a list of clubs by checking the Local Chapter tab at the SAW web site. Both clubs and Local Chapters are listed. Maybe you can find a group close enough to you to join and they can help you get a picnic started out there. That was our hope when we held the Expo in Escondido, that the clubs would continue to hold an event out there. Good luck in your search.

            Dale,
            Are you going to be able to sleep Friday night?
            I see on the website that they are giving away a DeWalt 788 again, but the mailer I got said they are giving away an Excalibur EX-21.
            You aren't planning on winning again are you??

              Another one has come and gone.
              There were fewer vendors, visitors and contest entries than last year, but we had a good time anyway. Nine members of our club made the 8 hour round trip and didn't win a single door prize! We did leave plenty of money there, though!
              I did manage to match a face to the lucky788scroller name while he was manning the Toys in the Attic booth. Nice to meet ya Dale! Too bad BobD and Shannon couldn't be there, but there's always next year.
              As soon as I wake up a little more, I've got to unload the wood from the Jeep.
              P.S. I was the one who didn't sleep much on Friday night. Kept waking up every hour and looking at the clock so I wouldn't over-sleep!

                Dale I can only say, HAVE FUN FOR ME TOO Im with Jim. I too live in southern Calif. and there isn't much out here yet. i wish i wasn't such a chicken. for i would start something. Maybe after, i get my feet wet enouph. I can do something. I just joined Saw. and now that i have the list of folks in my area. maybe I can get in touch with them. and see if we can get something going. then all you guys from across the states, can come to are state, and play with us. Pat- Oregon is a bit far from here. but Arizona is pretty close. about 4 hours. well see, maybe next year , I can go to most the picnices. and maybe. some of us here in Calif. could get together. and get a group price or something to go. a motor home would be nice. or a group plain ticket.????? do they do that. ??? anyway. your ALONE friend. Evie Oh Ya maybe we could swing buy Texus. to pick up Sharon. and Moon. do I have that wroung Moon. don't you live in Texus??

                  That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                  Betty, send me an email of what you want to order rather than the website. Better pricing on repackaged. Email at [email protected]...

                  Hello scrollsaw and sculptor experts !
                  I will need your advises to do that drawing (found on the web ), to make it in 3D , with cherry wood. It is a gift for my brother in law, for his messages of encouragement concerning the COVID. and since more than a year.

                  They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
