ScrollSaw Information and Resources #54: Where - How - What Places to sell Scrollsaw Items.

416 days ago by jerrells | 1 comment »

I would guess that the frustration for all of us is that we make a great product – or think so. However, to make this hobby/business interesting we need to sell some of it. That will be the main subject of my rant today WHERE – HOE = WHAT PLACES. I have found two “craft” malls in North Dallas and tried them both. The first one closed and the second was far too expensive. My search for additional locations has proven fruitless. I have a FaceBook specifically for m...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #53: Closing Shop - BLOG ???

422 days ago by jerrells | 5 comments »

A few days ago, I posted and BLOG and sent out a number of personal E-Mails about NO SALES – SHOULD I CLOSE SHOP. Well I got many replies and there were some said, “CLOSE”. However, and for the sake of good sanity a lot of fine family and friends said nice things about my work. I realize that at one time I said, “I fell in love with scroll work”, and I still do. Not sure if some sinus issues, lack of sales, HOT temperature in Texas or the crush of summer chores warped this old brain into sayi...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #52: Making Money of Closing Shop???

424 days ago by jerrells | 7 comments »

I am seriously considering closing PA’s Workshop as far as sales, craft shows and any thing like that. My wife and I have talked about this several times. 1. She thinks that it is effecting my sinuses being out there with all the dust. Yes I have done some major dust control but it is still there. 2. I tend to do that and not my household chores. I am retired and she is not, so I try to pickup most of the household chores for her. 3. I got a letter from the state controllers of...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #51: How to Price your Scroll Saw work and sell it

454 days ago by jerrells | 0 comments »

First of all I will need to admit that I struggle with this area. After about four years of doing scroll saw work for both customers and arts and craft shows I have come up with MY set of rules. Now I will admit that I borrowed most of the information and ideas from others but that is a way to get sound advice. If you choose to use any of the information be sure to make it your own. By that I mean tweak or change it to fit your needs or environment. Here are the several ways I and other scrol...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1049: Getting There . . .

457 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a beautiful morning I woke up to today! On this first day of June, it seems that we are finally getting warm and sunny weather. I heard, however that the midwestern United States got pounded again yesterday and I wish the best for all of you living there. Growing up in the Chicago area, we were very well aware of those violent storms that spring could bring and how frightening mother nature could be. It is certainly something that I don’t miss living here near the ocean. I had...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1048: Scroll Sawing a Dinosaur? I think not!

458 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

Yesterday evening, I was directed to a forum topic here on Lumberjocks. The title of the post is “Scroll saws vs Lasers – Is Scroll sawing Doomed?” and you can read it here. Naturally, being in the position that I am in, I am somewhat curious as to what people think about this subject. After all, if scroll saws are doomed, then my own doom as a pattern designer for the scroll saw is soon to follow. For now however, I am not very worried. In reading the comments so ...
