My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #250: The Business of Scroll Sawing

02-08-2011 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Work has been incredibly busy of late. I mean that in a good way. I don’t always get what I intend to get done, but it feels good to have a growing business and interact so much with so many interesting people. I sent out the notices regarding the site update on Sunday. That has seemed stir up a great amount of activity. I say this like it is unusual because I can remember not so long ago when sales on the site were almost non-existent. I am quite happy that we took the time to ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #249: One More Day of Instructions

02-07-2011 01:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Well, the site update is all completed and everything is up and running. All the new patterns have instructions and they are all checked over and ready to go. Even the Spring catalog is completed and posted and ready for download. It was really a busy weekend. My plans for yesterday of painting and finishing the little ornaments seemed to go by the wayside. I did decide to offer up the little heart tray to my mailing list customers, which means I needed to make the picture in Photoshop...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #5: The Business Side of Scrollsaw, Part 2

02-07-2011 12:10 AM by jerrells | 1 comment »

So as I continue to look at the business side of doing scrollsaw work, that is earning money for your (my) work, I am collecting information from all available resources. Most of this information will be used, in the initial stages, to attend Craft and Woodworking shows. There seems to be so much information available that with a little research one should be well prepaired to attempt this type of operation. So here is the information I have found, so far. 1. Research the type of shows ava...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #248: Assessing Information

02-06-2011 02:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I want to start out today by saying that I really do appreciate the comments about the scroll saws. I think that one of the best ways to decide which saw to go with is going to be by listening to others’ experiences with the different saws. I am sure that there are several saws that would be suitable for my needs, but with the number of choices out there, I think I will be able to find one that will work best for me and perform as I require it to. As I said before, the worse case ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #247: More on Saws

02-05-2011 02:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

There is so much for me to consider when looking for a scroll saw. So many questions. So many different opinions. Like most people, I find comfort in familiarity and resist any type of change whatsoever – be it for the good or not. I am beginning to see that my quest for a new scroll saw is not going to be an easy one. There is so much information and so many models out there that I am quickly feeling a bit overwhelmed. I need to accept the fact that DeWalt no longer exists as I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #246: Time For a New Saw (???)

02-04-2011 02:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

With the show in Saratoga Springs right around the corner, there is much I need to do to prepare myself for the event. My partner and I have been in the planning stages, and it seems our nightly walks have turned into mobile business meetings where we discuss the upcoming event. There will be so much preparation necessary in order to make things run smoothly. Having never participated in a show of this size, I just don’t know what to expect. I think the best philosophy is to ̶...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #245: On to Writing

02-03-2011 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

OK. So I think that I can stop wishing for more snow now. The last couple of days we really got a load of it. I didn’t go out for a walk yesterday, as it was still coming down quite hard but it looks calm out today and I think I will venture out for a little bit at least later on today. I suppose the most important thing here was that we didn’t lose any power. The lights flickered a little, but other than that it was a normal day for the most part. I had to do some stuff ar...

Hello fellow woodworkers, I was messing around in the woodshop with my BIG BOSCH ROUTER and just thinking about how useful it can be. It’s amazing to me how you can put just about any edge on a piece of wood and give that nice or unique look. It’s that uniqueness people are looking for in a project no matter what type it is. I’ve read many books and articles on routing but haven’t yet tried everything there is to accomplish with a router. I’m learning slo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #244: Deal of the Day

02-02-2011 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I know everyone here loves to hear a good “tool gloat”. Yesterday in my travels, I found an incredible deal that I couldn’t pass up, although it wasn’t really a tool that I found – it was a printer. With having a woodworking pattern business, I suppose a printer can qualify as a tool, as it is an important part of my day to day operation. With the impending snow storm and all the current deadlines met, we thought it would be a good day to get out of Dodge fo...
