Volunteer Opportunity

by | Apr 22, 2013

Messiah Lutheran Church: Each year we put on “Journey to Bethlehem” and are planning to add a Weaver’s tent to Bethlehem Village this year. We would like to demonstrate drop spindle spinning, weaving, and anything else having to do with textiles in the area of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus birth. We will provide costumes, fibers, lights, tent, tables, chairs other volunteers, drop spindles, etc as needed. I am new to this, so if anyone has done this elsewhere I would love suggestions and helpful insights as to what should be included. dyes? plant matter? goat,sheep, etc fibers? Table looms or backstrap or floor?

More details and contact information available on the member website or contact the webweaver.
