Knitting Scroll Saw Pattern.

Hobbies are good for the mind and the body. I have said it often and will say it again. Hobbies make our lives better.

As many as 50 million people in the US knit. That is a huge number. A poll from the Craft and Yarn Council says that :
93% of respondents said that knitting gave them a sense of accomplishment.
85% said it reduced their stress.
68% said it improves their mood.
56% said it increased their sense of confidence.

Where are knitters in the US?
Northeast 22%
Southeast 24%
Midwest 28%
West 11%
Southwest 8%
Northwest 7%

How old are knitters?
15% were 18-34 years old
13% were 35-44
23% were 45-54
32% were 55-64
17% were over 65.

I bet that if we took a similar poll in the scroll saw community we would come up with similar results
on how our hobby improves our lives. Just think about how important minimizing stress and feeling a sense of accomplishment is. It is very important for your mental and physical health.

If you have a friend who seems interested in your crafting then take a few minutes to see if they might be interested in trying it themselves. You just might make their life better.

The two patterns in this book both come in two sizes. One is just over 10 inches wide and the other is 13 inches wide. I am showing them cut from 1/4" thick wood but that is only a suggestion.

Using High-Quality Scroll Saw Blades is Important:

Disclaimer: This is an affiliate link. What I say below is absolutely my opinion without bias. If you feel like it may be biased, then just visit this non-affiliate link to purchase the blades.

I am not always a fan of sample packs but they have their place, especially if you are new to the brand.
Bear Woods has a sample pack that I think is just about perfect. Here is what you get.

*Pegas brand scroll saw blades. Swiss made to the highest standards.
*Modified geometry. Straighter cuts with less drift.
*The right sizes. You get a dozen each #1, #3, #5, and #7 MG blades.
*$19 plus shipping. The price is certainly not bad. Especially when you consider these are longer-lasting blades.

I have cut scroll saw projects nearly every day for years. The blades you get in this pack are what I use for 95% of everything I cut.

If you have not tried this brand before then try this sample pack. If you already know about these great blades then buy the individual packs as you need.

By the way. Bear Woods also sells the Niqua(Flying Dutchman) brand of scroll saw blades. Everything I said above about the Pegas blades is true for the Niqua brand.

Niqua scroll saw blades are manufactured in Germany. What do Switzerland and Germany have in common. They both have a reputation for high-quality manufacturing and craftsmanship.

Here is just one user review of this sample pack.

By TR Stewart
I am so happy that I found Bear Woods Supply! The scroll saw blades that I ordered are great, the customer service was excellent and I will be ordering again! These blades last longer and cut cleaner than other brands that I've tried.

Remember to keep the safety of yourself and others in your work shop in your thoughts at all times. Always wear eye and ear protection. Follow all the manufactures warnings that came with your power tools. If I demonstrate something on this web site that you don't feel is safe, don't do it. Your safety is your responsibility. Fingers are handy things, try to keep all of them.
