A Note from the Publishers
In 1986, we started The Preservation of the American Pioneer Crafts Series. Our goals are to promote an appreciation of our American heritage and educate through an entertaining format how to recreate either the products or the lifestyle from the 18th century.
The company was intended to be self-sustaining and self-perpetuating in that profits would serve to produce new videos. Additionally, we contribute to supporting featured artisans through direct commissions from sales.
Your purchase directly contributes to preserving certain positive aspects of our heritage, and helps the livelihood of some very talented individuals. In addition, you get a neat how-to video or DVD so you too can learn these skills! We sincerely appreciate our customers. You have become partners in our endeavor to educate and entertain viewers about colonial era crafts.
NOTE: THESE ARE NOT "HOME MOVIES" THEY ARE PROFESSIONALLY RECORDED ON TOP QUALITY BROADCAST LEVEL EQUIPMENT.
