Description

Weaving Words & Spinning Yarns,

The drop of the spindle

The whir of the wheel

The step of the treadle

The click of the needles

Three storytellers bring you an evening of tales that were woven (by words) as women worked. Stories of a weaving goddess' jealous revenge, a tailor's fate, a quilter's special promise, a young girl's encounter with the mysterious Lady in White - hear these tales and more in an evening of magical and mythical storytelling that will transport you to other times and other lands.

The Storytellers are:
