    Shaker Towels for the 21st Century

    Shaker Towels for the 21st Century is an indispensable reference for weaving fine linen and cotton yarns. The author's research and analysis of Shaker Textiles at Pleasant Hill. KY; Canterbury, NH; Sabbathday Lake, Maine; Hancock Shaker Village, MA; Winterthur Museum, Delaware, and many other collections led to methods for reproducing linen and cotton towels of the 19th century using materials available today. Many weavers participated in making these reproduction towels, and in the process they discovered techniques for successful weaving with fine linens and cottons. This book has directions for 40 of these reproduction towels with helpful comments from the many weavers who wove them. Today one may view these reproduction towels at the following Shaker Villages: Canterbury, NH; Hancock, MA; and Pleasant Hill, KY. Webs is the exclusive retailer for this book.

        Comments about Shaker Towels for the 21st Century:

        The content is very interesting and useful but I also really like the structure of the book. The internal ring binder makes it stay flat for easy use but the rings are protected from snagging on things.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Webs service was great as always.
