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
The Monthly Meeting was suspended for January 11, 2021. A decision for February and forward will be forthcoming.
Due to COVID-19 the Carolina Scroller's Wednesday In-Store Demonstrations are suspended until Furthur Notice
For all meetings social distancing and use of face masks will be mandatory at all meetings
2020 Program Completed
The 2020 Christmas Ornament Program was a huge success.
Sales far exceeded expectations, resulting in the best year since the program started in 2013.
The members of the club provided a superb selection of designs topped off with outstanding craftsmanship followed by great packaging and presentation.
Aside from the selection and quality of ornaments, the Winston Salem Journal published a key article in their "Relish" section publication (noted below). This single event had a significant positive impact on total sales.
2019 Klingspor Extravaganza
In partnership with the Klingspor Woodworking Shop the Carolina Scrollers scrolled over 100 ornaments that were fastened to a tree supplied by Klingspor dedicated to scrolling. In exchange for the ornaments, Klingspor donated an equivalent value to the Second Harvest Food bank of NW NC.
This tree will be on display in the future at annual Extravaganzas in Hickory NC during the Fall and at the Winston Salem Klingspor Woodworking Shop during the Christmas season.
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
