Simple Gifts: 25 Authentic Shaker Craft Projects, editors of Garden Way Publishing
1 editors of Garden Way Publishing Simple Gifts: 25 Authentic Shaker Craft Projects
Storey Communications 1990 hardcover with dust jacket used 132 pages, 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches tall 
from the dust jacket: "The distinctive proportions and simple grace of Shaker crafts have set Shaker apart as a beloved American style, and now you, as a handcrafter - of whatever level of skill - can make your own Shaker reproductions. In Simple Gifts: 25 Authentic Shaker Craft Projects, master craftspeople, most of whom have taught and served as interpreters at either the Hancock or Canterbury Shaker Villages, share their skills and knowledge about how to imitate Shaker techniques and designs in nine different craft areas: basketry, woven-tape chair seats, oval boxes, woodworking, tinware, handweaving, miniatures, herbal products, and poplarware.

Each chapter is devoted to a single craft and contains complete directions for three or more projects, as well as information about how each craft evolved in Shaker communities and what tools and methods were traditionally used in its production. A color photo album depicts each of the completed projects.

The complete, step-by-step instructions and detailed line drawings for each project offer the benefits of a highly skilled teacher at your side. As you follow the same processes that were used by the Shakers to create their unique and lovely objects, you will come to have a greater appreciation for both their way of life and the depth of their accomplishments, and the handcrafts you produce will be objects that you - or the persons to whom they are given - will cherish."
