The Amish Furniture Podcast is back! After a short holiday break, Beth and Milca return to bring you episode 5: Do Amish Women Work in Furniture Woodshops?

There’s a lot of interest in this question, and we’re happy to tackle it in Episode 5. Though we can’t make generalizations about every family and community, in this episode Beth and Milca discuss the roles we’ve seen women play in the Amish Furniture world. You may be surprised by some of the roles women play in Amish woodshops, ranging from office work to sanding table legs to running the whole operation! Listen now and subscribe to catch all our upcoming weekly episodes!

To see pictures from Beth’s trip to Amish woodshops, read our blog, Where the Women Are in Amish Woodshops.
