World's Best Mother Scroll Saw Pattern.

This pattern book has a couple of Mother's Day word art patterns. 

Information: The Scrollsaw Workshop blog is huge. How do I find something I saw a long time ago?

There are very few days go by that I don't get asked by an email newsletter reader to resend a pattern or blog post. Please understand that I can't do that. The newsletter is just a copy of the daily blog post. The newsletter is formatted and sent to all newsletter subscribers automatically. There are over one million emails that go out every month so it has to be automated.

If you misplace a pattern it will always be available on the blog and in the free online catalog. Every blog post since May 1, 2007 is still on the blog. You can navigate back in time using the archive selector in the left column. 

The blog is designed to show the last two posts. At the end of the second post is a navigation bar. You can go back in time two posts at a time. This is handy if you are looking for something that was recently posted.

I also maintain a page that has a list of every blog post. It has the title and short description of the post. Here is the link to that page. Bookmark the page for future reference. It's a long list so give it time to load.

There is also a search box in the left column. Type any word or phrase in the search box and every post with that word will be displayed. For example, if you are looking for a post about "coin cutting" just type that into the search box and see what comes up.

Most of the time the reader is searching for a pattern from the past. The free online catalog has a search box that can help. All the patterns are in categories to help narrow the search. 

I also offer a $3 PDF catalog that has thumbnail images of every pattern. I try to keep it updated every two months or sooner. That makes it much easier to quickly do a visual search for a pattern.

I ask that you try these resources before you email me for help. I totally understand that the blog is huge and sometimes you will need to ask for help. When you do need help I need specific information. I have designed thousands of patterns. If you ask me to send you "that bowl pattern", it just won't happen and I'll probably just ignore the email. Give as much detail as possible and I'll probably be able to help.

Thanks for understanding.
