Unhappy Scroll Saw Fonts

Occasionally I like to modify published patterns (those with text) to fit my needs. I have not been able to find a suitable font; short of going into Inkscape software, does anyone know a source for scroll saw fonts?

Try Word or Photoshop.

I mostly use Hobo and WordArt and occasionaly Showtime. Hobo you can get just by Googling Hobo Font. For WordArt you need to use the link Larry provided.

The great thing about Hobo is that it has no letters with portions which go below the line. The great thing about WordArt is that letters like a, b, e, g, o, p, and q are open and have no bridges although in lower case g, j, p, q, and y do go below the line.

Whoops - went back and looked. I should have said Showcard Gothic rather than Showtime for the occasional font.
