Colonial Spindles?

I really enjoy reading about the history of fiber arts, particularly from a European/North American perspective.  I just stumbled across this article, Request for Documentation!, and I found it very interesting.  Maybe you'll like it, too.

Of course, I did my "stumbling" on Ravelry.  Last week, I found this nugget on Ravelry - The Hearth Library.  Oh My.  Notice the search function - I typed "spinning" and I got 1127 books.  What fun!
