San Antonio Weaves at the Alamo

First Saturday at the Alamo, San Antonio, Texas is always a living history day. On May 9, 2016 the featured topic was “Homespun: Fibers & Fabrics of the 19th century”, exploring all stages of the production of textiles on the Texas frontier from the harvesting of raw organic materials to finished products. Living History volunteers, including members of CHT and SAHG, demonstrated spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, quilting and other skills that were part of life on the Texas frontier.
