Mary Boyd


I have worked at Tall al ‘Umayri for ten seasons beginning in 1994, serving as textile specialist and as square and field supervisor.

I am inerested in all things textile. I began sewing at 9 years old, and quilt, weave, spin, and knit.

“Subsistence/Production: Text and Textiles” is chapter of my PhD dissertation, The House that Wisdom Wove: Functions of Household in Proverbs 31:10-31, and focused on the production of textiles depicted in that poem.

I currently serve as pastor of Langley United Methodist Church on Whidbey Island, near Seattle, Washington.
