The newsletter proof was sent to me from the printer, they have 1 page to fix and this was yesterday. As soon as I get word the proof is ready, I will email it to the members who have contacted me that this is how they want to receive it. Everyone this issue will receive the paper format and starting next issue (January), those requesting the digital format will not receive the paper form.

Thank you all for your patience while you waited for me, a non-editor to attempt to put together a newsletter (magazine). Thank God for Lee coming to my rescue, lol.

After rewriting a few of my articles and finding everything through peviuos emails and the awesome help of our new editor, the newsletter is going to the printer today. Praise God. I am so sorry for the huge delay. Our new editor knows exactly what he is doing and I have no worries about his capabilities. Please email him or any board member to tell us what you would like to see in future newsletters.
When I first became President and spoke to many of you, several gave me tips, etc and I am compiling them together for an article I'm writing for the winter issue. Plus, after its in the newsletter, it will go on our webpage for tips.
I hope everyone has a safe Thanksgiving if you ae traveling and a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family.

The October issue of the newsletter will be out to everyone the 1st week of Nov.
I apologize but my hard drive stop working and I lost everything. I had to recreate everything and thank God I save emails. But I have enlisted our new editor to help me with the time crunch. It should be going to our publisher this week.

Also, because of the delay with it coming out, the election is being extended to the Dec meeting. The new deadline for the election is Dec 12th at midnight. There will be a ballot in your newsletter you may mail to our election judge or you may got our website and vote there. Go to Inside SAW and then Board Election.

Again, I apologize for the technical problems.

But on a good note, We are up to over 30 new members since the 10th of Oct. I have been busy getting their welcome packets ready for mailing.

This afternoon I am going out to my shop to scroll and relieve office stress and this evening I will be working on the CD for new members which includes pictures and free patterns that will go to all new members that joined after the home office was moved to California. I have a list of all of you.

Thank you for your patience and again, I am sorry.

WOW, are we having a great month in October of 2017.
In September we had 26 new members. Today is Oct 19 and we have 28 new members. Our number of members is currently 410. This includes family members and our business supporters.

We are rocking this. My living room tonight was nothing but new member packets. I love it.

Here's some things to think about.
1. Do you know of anyone in need of help with a specially built
scroll saw stand because they are in a wheelchair? Build one
for them and share with us.
2. Do you know of anyone with MS or Fibromyalgia that need
something to help therapeutically with their hands? Introduce
them to the scroll saw.
3. Do you have youth in your area and they have no wood shop in
their schools? Show them SAW's ACES video.
4. Read about our programs and work them in your area.

Is your club seeking new, younger members? Put signs up in schools, grocery stores, lumber stores, home improvement stores, etc, about your monthly meetings and show them the scroll saw.

Help us to help you. Volunteer for one of our committees. They are listed under "Programs".

Have a website to sell or promote your woodcraft, under "Gallery" we have a place for you to put your website link. Let other members see your site and have a direct link.

Check out our affiliate Vendors. Order through their link on our site and SAW gets the commission.

We are seeking to have an Expo in 2019. Help us, refer a friend. Each person who joins and tells us who referred them, the member who referred them gets a free month of membership.

We are bringing back the Log-In Lotto. Starting the 1st week of November, everyone who logs into will be in for a drawing. The log-in lotto winner wins a free month membership. You can win once in a 12 month period. That's 12 winners a year.

We want to bring back the Scholarship program. Do you know someone deserving of a scholarship. Download a scholarship application, give it to them. We will be issuing scholarships starting summer of 2018 for the 2019 school year. Plan now.

Tell everyone, SAW is here to stay. We are strong and going forward.

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!
