    Scrollsaw Club in Raleigh ??

    Hello Everyone!

    I am Edís wife and after about 6 years of owning a scrollsaw, which he presented to me one Christmas, I feel I really could use more assistance than all the books Iíve read and things Iíve made on my own. However, there is not a scrollsaw group in the Triangle like the one in Winston Salem (too far to drive). So, Iíd like to start one here at the Klingspor in Cary. We wouldnít be making things but instead could show one another what weíre working on, ask questions of the group, get suggestions or just share helpful tidbits. Iíve reserved a large room at Klingspor for the first meeting to be held on Sunday, September 16th at 2PM. Meetings will be monthly on the third Sunday of every month, if there is continuing interest. Please let me know if any of you are interested or just show up on the 16th. Iíll be there and hope to see some of you. Thanks, Lee.

    TWA used to have a number of people who did some scrolling. I would make sure you advertise this at their next meeting.

    Re: Scrollsaw Club in Raleigh ??

    I'd love to start a scroll saw club in the Hickory area, if only I had the energy. Already over committed and find it hard to get time in the shop. The hot weather is another deterrent, as it is so much harder to work. I have been told that when the weather is hot, there are less oxygen molecules per volume of air we inhale. Had to reattach the deck to my zero turn mower again yesterday as it can come detached on one side when I inadvertently run over a tree root. That was an ordeal! So much for rambling and excuses!
    If anyone would be interested in starting a scroll saw focused club in the Hickory area please give a shout out. I have friends who are not members of the forum that I will make the pitch to, and we'll see what we can come up with. I'll even start a new thread to get an idea.
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    Since there is a section on the site called GROUPS we should add these different woodworkgin groups there so everyone can learn about what they are about, and then on EVENTS we can post when their next meeting is.

    That sounds like a good idea. Now someone needs to gather all that information.
