The farmmade craft book : handmade projects from America's farmers

Image of item
A celebration of simple living skills. Not too long ago, handwork skills such as sewing a quilt, crocheting a washcloth, or embroidering a pillowcase were handed down from one generation to the next. Candle- and soap-making, blacksmithing, basket weaving, natural yarn dying, and repurposing were all time-honored traditional skills that were essential to the farm's microeconomy and long-term success. While many of these traditional skills have been lost to the convenience of today's modern economy, they are still alive and thriving among America's farmers. The FarmMade Craft Book showcases fifty traditional crafts from farms all over the country. Hailing from New England, the Deep South, the Midwest, Southwest, and Northwest, each authentic farm-made project represents its region's unique array of raw materials and end products. Revive valuable lost skills and pave the way for a more independent, sustainable future with The FarmMade Craft Book.
