As I started scrollsawing a few months ago, one of the first things I looked for was available patterns. An Internet search did a fair job of returning FREE and for a price patterns. However my frustration was all of the SPAM I found. Here I am specifically talking about the sites that report free scrollsaw patterns and then tell you that you have 450 infected files on your computer and will fix them – for a fee. Seems when I searched for Fretwork is the worst tag word.
Next I started sreaching book stores and specifically Half Price Books. Fopund some really good books there and specifically ones by Patrick Spielman. He seems to be the knog of scrollsaw patterns – in book form. However I knew that he had more books that I was finding in the local stores. Next I found Half Priced Books on-line wen site. This searches all Half Priced Books stores plus many other discount resellers. Well now I have a steady streem of books coming my way.
If your scrollwork is just a little more than a hobby then this library of information is a must. However, as I said before fine people on-line like SHelia Landry and/or Steve Good have really helped me personally in many ways.
I look forward to many more days of scrolling and making victorian scroll work.
