Annual Christmas Ornament Program
The meeting format is an open discussion by all members. The experience, interests and areas of expertise of each member vary from novice or beginner to very experienced. As such, the exchange of experience is invaluable to all.
Each month members will bring to the meeting their in-process or completed work better known as "show and tell". Members will explain their techniques, difficulties, successes and recommendations. Many demonstrations and disussions include:
-- Saw blade selection, sources, prices and experience tips
-- Wood choices; thicknesses, scrolling characteristics relative to blade selection, saw speeds, wood grain or hardness
-- Wood sources and pricing
-- Wood finishing products and techniques
-- Scrolling Saw use, maintenance, safety and experience
-- Scrolling techniques and tips
-- Fretwork and Intarsia plans are discussed and many times members will bring copies of plans to discuss future projects.
Note: the Scroller's club maintains an extensive file of plans and books available for members use.
The club meets each second Monday of the month at the Klingspor Woodworking Shop in Winston Salem starting at 6:00
2019 Klingspor Extravaganza
2021 Christmas Ornament Program
The club is in full swing preparing for the 2021 program. Focus is being placed on scrolling ornaments that were very popular in 2020 and introducing new patterns.
Unfortunately the annual Klingspor Extravaganza has been cancelled for 2021. As such, the club will not have the opportunity to display for sale over the two day show in Hickory. In order to offset the effect of this key venue, the sales at the Winston Salem Klingspor store will start in October rather than November, continuing until December 31, 2021.
The Winston Salem Journal (WSJ) published an article on December 3, 2020 highlighting the Carolina Scrollers with focus on their annual Christmas Ornament Program. This article resulted in a significant boost in sales
