Could you be a little more specific?
Are you looking for something that your personae would have had? If so,
that's going to vary by location and time frame.
Are you just interested in learning how to use a wheel and making your own
yarn/threads? Are you planning on weaving said fibers?
Are you looking for something in the way of a woodworking project? Not to
be offensive, but building a spinning wheel, modern or period, is tough
without a lathe and/or some significant woodworking skills.
Most Spinning wheels across the historical spectrum can actually be
acquired at a fairly reasonable price. My own isn't period, but it's fun
to play with and learn on, which is all I care about right now, anyway.
There are some groups on Yahoo that address spinning and weaving targeted
at SCA interests. I'm at work now, so accessing the exact addresses are
off the top of my head, but I'm thinking that they're
SCAweaving@yahoogroups.com, SCAspinning@yahoogroups.com (could be wrong
about the order that the words appear in). You might have better luck
finding the plans you're looking for on those lists.
