Breast Cancer Awareness Scroll Saw Pattern.

October is breast cancer awareness month. One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Each year over one quarter of a million women in the U.S.  will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Everyone is impacted by this disease in one way or another. 

Because of  better screening and early detection the death rate from breast cancer has been slowly declining since the 1990's. That's good news but more needs to be done. If you have it in your means please support the fight against breast cancer. 

The pattern is a little over 9 inches wide and 7 inches tall.  

Artistry in Wood show is almost here:

The Artistry in Wood show is October 14th and 15th. The show is being held at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington Ohio. It is believed to be the largest show of it's kind in the US. The show is dedicated to woodcarving and woodworking art.

I will be the guest of Seyco. I will be in their booth both Saturday and Sunday. If you have the opportunity to visit the show please stop and say hello. Seyco will have their new Seyco ST-21 scroll saw at the show. Make sure you spend some time with this machine. I think you will be impressed. It might even be a good idea to take one home. :)

I have not attended this show before but I understand it is amazing. I have seen some of their exhibits online and they are incredible. Some of the best woodcarvers in the U.S. will be showing their art. I am super excited to have the chance to attend. If you can make the trip I'm pretty sure you will enjoy the show. You have a week to pack up the car and make the trip to Ohio. See you there.
