I’m a little behind, but here are the results are in for our little poll. It looks like weather doesn’t play much of a part in your scrolling habits! 54% say that weather doesn’t make a lick of difference. The rest is pretty evenly split between weather being too cold scroll or too nice to be stuck indoors. Here are the results!

Poll Results & New Poll For May 2008

Well, it can’t be said that scrollers aren’t generous! When asked what they do with most of their scrolled projects, 67% say they give their creations away. Isn’t that nice? There’s nothing like a handmade gift. I’m happy to report that nobody admitted to throwing away their art. 10% sell their items, either online at craft shows. 7% chose “other”, which makes me think what “other” is. Hrmmmmmm. We received 64 votes total. The results are below.

Poll Results & A New Poll for Feb. 2008

The current poll is over. We had 46 people chime in. The results are below:

What kind of scroll work do you do most often?

  • Fretwork 54% (26 votes)
  • Portraits – 17% (8 votes)
  • Puzzles – 2% (1 vote)
  • Intarsia – 10% (5 votes)
  • Segmentation – 6% (3 votes)
  • Compound Cutting – 4% (2 votes)
  • Inlay/Marquetry – 0% (0 votes)
  • Other – 2% (1 vote)

Most people do fretwork, followed by portraits. I know that fretwork and portraits are basically the same. But I tried to distinguish between those who do images with black felt backings to those who do more decorative items, such as clocks. I was surprised by the results. I figured portraits would get the most votes as those patterns are most readily available on the internet. But then again, this isn’t a very scientific poll.

OK…now for our next poll! Ain’t this fun?

What do you listen to while scrolling?

  • Music
  • Talk Radio
  • Podcasts
  • Audio Books
  • Nothing
  • Other

This poll will run through Feb 29th. Cast your vote now!

New Poll: What kind of scroll work do you do most often?

What kind of scroll work do you do most often?

  • Fretwork
  • Portraits/Wildlife
  • Puzzles
  • Intarsia
  • Segmentation
  • Compound Cutting
  • Inlay/Marquetry
  • Other

I’ve created a new poll and located on the right column of the web page. The poll will be up for 30 days or until I’m satisfied with the response. I’ve chosen to break up fretwork and portraits/wildlife into two sections. I realize portraits is technically fretwork. But I wanted to separate those who specialize in portraits from those who do other types of fretwork (ie, clocks).

So go ahead and cast your vote. It will be fun to see what kind of scrollwork people favor.
