« Part 1218: Ballerinas Part 1219 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1220: Making Progress . . . »

Today’s post is going to be a short one. (I know – I ALWAYS say that!)

I awoke a bit early today and I want to take advantage of the day. Yesterday I didn’t get to work on my ballerinas at all, as there were many other things that came up and before I knew it the day was gone.

I did get to do some scroll sawing yesterday. I had several orders for wood pieces and I was happy about that. I really like that side of the business because it gives me an excuse to get a little dusty and enjoy the process of creating wood pieces for painters. Being a painter myself, I try to take the utmost care in preparing the wood pieces for others to use. I know how I like MY own wood pieces to be, and I try to make the items I send the highest level of quality.

I think it was probably a good thing as well to step away from the project for a day or so. It gives me a little bit of a different perspective on it and I already have some other ideas for the ballerinas.

I did want to mention though that it is “official” and that Keith and I will be conducting several classes at the Northeastern Woodworker’s Association Showcase that will be held on March 29th and 30th in Saratoga Springs, New York. You can read more about the showcase HERE.

We will be hosting four – three hour classes that will cover several techniques of scroll sawing. This is a ‘hands-on’ class, so everyone will be making a project while learning. I love teaching this way and look forward to seeing everyone and sharing information on scroll sawing. We are going to have a great time!

I should have more to show you regarding the project tomorrow. I look forward to getting lots done today with my early start.

I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday and hope you have a great day!

That looks like an awesome showcase Sheila! Now, if I could only get you to travel a little (OK, a lot) farther west! Will you be teaching the “same” class twice or different subjects? It’s great when the instructor is as excited to teach as the students are to learn. Have a great Wednesday!

Hi, Candy:
It is a huge show with over 5000 people that attend every year. The class size is going to be very limited to the number of saws we will have available (under 10) so we are going to be teaching a beginner to intermediate class four times over. We are still figuring just the right project to teach, as it is sometimes difficult when there are many different skill levels at one time. But hopefully everyone will come away learning something from the class they took.

We ARE excited. I am sure you will hear much more about it before March. I hope you have a wonderful day! :)

Being a Louisville Cardinal fan, I really like this cardinal. Congrats on the classes. “Students” should learn a lot from you both.

My bucket list includes some of the great woodworking shows that take part in the East. It seems that they are much bigger and have more variety included than some of the shows here in the west. While there is some scroll sawing at the carving shows I attend, it is not as popular as it seems to be in the Eastern Canada and the US. One day…........
Enjoy your day.

Yes, it is difficult to get away sometimes. I really enjoyed when we did the woodworking show a couple of years ago though and I look forward to seeing people again this March. It will be a wonderful time I am sure. :)
