The Heart of Ohio Scrollers is a chapter member of S.A.W.. This is an international, nonprofit organization which is dedicated to the advancement of scroll sawing. The purpose of S.A.W. is to provide education and information to those interested in the art of scroll sawing.
Our club members vary in age, experience and interests. We meet to share our love of scroll sawing. We share the way we do things and discuss problems with sawing that others may have also. We encourage everyone to bring a project to the meetings to show others. This has been an excellent way to learn new things and encourage those who are less experienced. We also try to have a demonstration at each club meeting.
Once a month we have Open Saw at the Hardwood Store (Enon, OH). We gather on the second Saturday of the month from 10 am to noon. There are two DeWalt saws available and members are invited to bring a project to cut at Open Saw. Having problems with a project? Need to practice cutting inside corners? Want some advice or help with a project? Have a new saw and just want to practice or see what a scroll saw can do? Bring your questions to Open Saw.
In June we have a summer picnic. One of our members grills meat and everyone brings a covered dish. We also have a meal at Christmas and a gift exchange.
Each year we have rented space at the Apple Butter Festival in Enon and set up a booth where members can sell items they have made. We have also participated in community service projects, such as cutting puzzles for Children's Hospital in Dayton and Christmas ornaments for the military
