Women Wood Crafters: Cy's Corner

The scroll saw community is lucky to have such a large percentage of women crafters. I don't have numbers to back this up but I am sure we have a larger percentage of women than other woodworking niches. 

Women often bring a different perspective and aesthetic to the craft. Many of the best pattern designers are women. I am generalizing here a bit but men often make projects for the challenge. Women are more interested in the beauty and how nice of a gift the project will make. I'm sorry if that is a bias but it is just my observation. 

Women absolutely make the majority of craft purchases. If you are going to do a craft show you better have some projects that appeal to women or you will lose sales.
