W is for Weaver

Once again I have picked a theme for the A to Z Challenge. This time I aim to entertain rather than to educate. My theme is careers or occupations. I begin with a piece of creative writing.

William and Wendy are weavers. William uses a handloom and Wendy has a loom, which almost fills a room. They are craft-workers, who make home-furnishings and scarves.

They do not need electricity or even the power from a water-wheel to work their looms. All the power comes from their hands and feet. They set up the warp and create beautiful patterns when they add the weft. Wool and natural fibres are their favourite yarns. Shuttles and needles are kept in their workboxes when not in use.

The curtains for the tabernacle were quite elaborate. They were protected by a tent woven from goat’s hair. Exodus 26: 1-14. Exodus 28:1-48 describes the priestly garments and other items. In the same way that God instructed Noah on the design of the ark, He instructed Moses in these passages.
