Traditionally held on the Alamo grounds, take a virtual journey through the clothes-making process with the Alamo’s living historians. This virtual event will take place all day long on the Official Alamo Facebook page through videos detailing how clothes were made in the 1830’s, from spinning the wool, dyeing cloth, sewing, leatherwork and more. In addition to the creation process, Homespun will also examine the military uniforms of 1830’s Texas. Homespun can be enjoyed for free on the Official Alamo Facebook page.
