Look I'm just going to tell it like it is. There are a very small handful of scroll saw pattern designers in the world. Of those maybe three or four produce 70 percent of the really nice patterns out there. Sheila Landry, Sue Mey and Dirk Boelman are at the top of that list in my opinion. Without these folks using their talent to design scroll saw patterns the hobby would get very boring very fast.
I know not everyone has the funds available to buy patterns. That's why I do what I do. If you do have some discretionary money then please support these very talented designers and buy from them. Even a single $5 pattern purchase helps them keep designing.
If you spend even a few minutes at Sheila Landry Designs you will find a pattern you will love cutting. I know this sounds like an advertisement but I don't take a penny from Sheila. I do this because if you buy from her the hobby benefits. You will be happy with your purchase because she only sells great patterns. Go take a look. Support the hobby of scrolling.
