For the past couple of months, your SAW Board of Directors have been focusing on the 2016 Expo that was scheduled to be held in Springfield, Mo. next year (2016). Unfortunately, the BOD member that was working on the EXPO resigned his position unexpectedly. And after a lot of research and consideration, we have decided NOT to move forward with the EXPO and cancel it. We want to do what we feel will be in the best interest of our members and organization. We do not want to plan an event unless we're certain that it will be successful by having good support from members and Chapters where the event will be held.
Here is where the problem arises. There are no chapters within close proximity that have stepped forward to help plan, set-up, work the show and competition. Vendors that we have spoken to are very concerned about the EXPO and what will attract scrollers.
We know all chapters would like to have an EXPO in their area for convenience and economics. While we believe that an EXPO is a must, we will continue to reevaluate the possibility of having one in the near future. We will also continue to look for input from our members and SAW Chapters to ensure an EXPO is not only held, but is done right and is a successful show.

Local Chapters are in place or are being founded in many areas of the country. Members of Chapters are the enthusiastically addicted scrollers from a geographic area. All scrollers are invited to join and share their knowledge with the group. New scrollers can learn from the combined experience of the group's members. This is your opportunity to join in and explore the advantages of membership in this growing and vital Association.
Your membership will immediately give you a subscription to our quarterly newsletter, SAW Dust, and a copy of our current annual Resource Directory. These publications will enhance your scrolling, enlarge your community, and give you a valuable start to learning more about this wonderful craft. You can explore many of these benefits on these pages, but you will not have the full benefit of membership until you join the Scrollsaw Association of the World.
Join now and become a part of this growing community!
