Whether you are interested in Fretwork, Marquetry, or Intarsia; whether you work in wood, or other mediums; whether you design your own patterns or use available patterns; no matter what brand of scroll saw you use; no matter where in the world you are located, the Scrollsaw Association of the World is for YOU!
Welcome to 2017...the beginning of the 21st year of SAW!
Keep watching your SAWDUST newsletter for changes your BoD has made in SAW operations...hoping to make our organization more responsive and helpful to all scrollers world-wide.
We welcome Mr. John Nelson to the BoD. His term of office, based on his election in November, will run through 2019. He promises to provide us with many good ideas, in addition to many wonderful patterns for us to use.
One major change which the BoD has implemented in trying to reduce the monthly workload is that all memberships come due in the month of January from now on.
We realize that many of you have paid for a membership that extends beyond January, so we have developed a table of prorated fees payments to make it equitable for this first year. The table...
If your "renewal month" is... January, you pay $25;
if February, $23.50;
if March, $22;
if April, $20.50;
if May, $19;
if June, $17.50;
if July, $16;
if August, $14.50;
if September, $13;
if October, $11.50;
if November, $10;
if December, $8.50.
These renewals are due and payable now. You can go to "members tools" and click on the renew membership option to renew your membership.
Please note, there will no longer be a separate "invoice" mailed to you when your membership is due. It will appear in the website and in the SAWDUST newsletter. Again, we're trying to save money by cutting down on extraneous mailings.
I hope that you have a great 2017. Look for more patterns. Share patterns you have worked on (observing copyright laws, though). But, keep on making sawdust!
Bob King, SAW president
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!
