Interview with Charles Dearing

What do your fans mean to you?
If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be where I am today...so, in a word? Everything!
What are you working on next?
Offering simplified versions of patterns alongside their more detailed versions -- past and future.
Which scroll saw pattern designers do you admire?
Mike Williams, Steve Good, Russ Claridy, Sheila Landry, Keith Fenton, Sue Mey, Dirk Boelman, Janette Square, Bruce Worthington, Kathy Wise, and Judy Gale Roberts. I know I'm forgetting some...there are so many I admire.
What motivated you to start designing ebooks?
I realized it would allow scroll sawyers to save money by buying patterns in bulk, rather than individually.
