Make sure you check out the Community forum. There are hundreds of scrollers there who will welcome you and make you feel welcome. You will find the link to the forum in the left column of the blog.
The left column is also the place to find the free online pattern catalog. There are hundreds of free patterns there in categories. I think you will find something that you will enjoy cutting.
There are videos in the Scroll Saw School, also linked in the left column that will teach you some of the basics.
As you scroll down the blog you will find free programs to allow you to create your own patterns such as name plates and key fobs for key chains.
One of the more popular items on the blog are the Jigsaw Puzzle templates. For just $7 you can download the templates and turn your photographs into family heirloom jigsaw puzzles. Watch the video and it will show you how easy it is with my templates.
