The Shakers Need You

We're all familiar with the beautiful, simple designs of the Shaker ladder-back chairs and other furniture; but did you know the Shakers had a manifesto? (Spoiler alert: Contains Christianity.)

Not that they were Luddites, and, sadly, fornication is out of the question. But if you're done with social networking, you like gardening and you're good with your hands, this could be the new direction you've been looking for.
