  • Disappointment

    Some of you may recall from awhile back, that I was working on organizing a scroll saw class, that I would teach this Spring. Since the class was being sponsored by another entity, a minimum number of students was required. They were providing the venue and promoting the class on their website. I, along with several members of my scroll saw club, were going to conduct the class. I had everything ready and the class was scheduled for Saturday, May 12. Unfortunately, we didn't end up with enough folks registered to allow us to conduct the class, so it has been cancelled.

    I was really looking forward to this, but it just wasn't really feasible to go forward with too few students. I hope to get another shot at this in the future. The sponsor is still interested and suggested that perhaps a Fall time frame would be better. We'll see.

    I'm sorry to hear that Bill. I know you have already put forth some effort getting prepared for this class. Hoping it works out in the fall.

      Disappointing news, Bill, but maybe between now and the fall, you can think up ways to promote the class. As a longtime speaker and presenter, I know that getting the word out makes all the difference between an audience of 2 and one of 200 (have had both sizes.)

      Also, be sure that whatever date you choose, it doesn't conflict with other events. That can really wreak havoc with attendance (don't ask how I know!).

        Hang in there Bill. Maybe it's just the weekend. My sister-in-law and her fiance are having a couple's wedding shower the same weekend. They made us invite over 200 people and only 50 or so RSVPed that they were available to come. Personally, I would have much rather come to your class. Maybe after a summer of promotion, they will get some people to come back in the fall to camp and take a class.

          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
