Ever since the advent of the internet it has become easy to find 100% Free Scroll Saw Patterns.
Many articles have been written on this subject and I have to say that I agree.
Why pay for something you can get for free?

I encourage everyone to post their best sites for some of the latest free patterns they have found.

I personally own a Dewalt DW788 Scroll Saw.. Great machine.

I’ve also purchased a lazy mans scroll saw called a Laser..LOL
They are pretty amazing. All you do is take any pattern and convert it to vector.. I use Corel Draw for this.. like most people who use lasers. CorelDraw is pretty much the standard.
The beauty of a laser is once you have it programed for a pattern you can repeat that pattern forever.
Even if your friends don’t have a laser they can use the files by simply printing them out and cut the pattern on their scroll saw.

Recently my daughter who lives in Colorado wanted me to make a bunch of Fairy
Garden items for her to sell at a craft show.

So I designed some swing sets, bridges, Fairy doors etc and mailed them off to her. I also put them on my website for sale..

Here’s a FREE Pattern for all of you… Great for Fairy Gardens my Daughter sold a ton of these.
If anyone wants a FREE pattern for my Porch Swing that I sell completed for $24.95

Just join my mailing list. My Mailing List

I will be sending this out to in a PDF file to the hundreds already on my list within the next few days.. It took me mega hours to design it.. and it sells really well. No glue needed it just all snaps together and it really swings.

Another great site for 100% free patterns is:

Maybe it’s just me but if I were a scroll saw pattern designer and people wanted to use my designs I would want to be paid for them…just like the waiter bringing your food wants to be paid. I understand that some designers do create free plans but aren’t those sort of like calling cards or those pens with logos that so many companies give away, to get your attention so you will buy their product so they can make a living?

No.. I’m sure it’s not just you.. if people want to buy plans from someone I’m good with that.
I’ve designed mega patterns over the years.. then produced and sold the finished products.

I’m done with that now… so I’m going to give all of my patterns away as well.

If someone feels compelled to pay me.. how about walking up to a homeless
person on the street and handing them some money.. You’d be amazed how
good it makes you feel to do that.. and the person you gave it too..

I’ve never done this for a living and never would… it’s fun sometimes to be creative.

There are many many sites that offer 100% FREE plans.. So I guess other people
feel the same way as I do about them..

So… to each their own.. it’s just my opinion is all..

Here’s a good article written by an avid Scroller Lady about free plans:

If you have not received your free plans yet.. they are being sent…
I had such an overwhelming response to the free offer that I have to send them out in LOTS.

It’s not only all the new members.. it’s the hundreds of other people that are already members that
I’m sending these out to.

My ISP Provider only allows me to send out 50 emails per hour in groups.

So please be patient.. they are on the way.. I have them programmed to send every hour and 15 minutes..

Have your say...
