Re: [sig] Isabelle's article
- A couple of questions for you: "Anne's Bohemia"... could you post the
reference for that? I'd love to try finding it. Thanks!
And... You said that you'd do a better job on textile arts... do you mean
textiles as related to Bohemia? If so, would you be willing to share some
of what you know? Whatever forum is easiest for you, of course (here...
another article... just answering some questions...) I'd really appreciate
it, as I know *nothing* of the clothing or fabrics of the area (yet! I
haven't had time to do any research).
I got "Anne's Bohemia" from either Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble's site. It's
not hard to get. I actually can't find my copy of it right now, but it's
around here somewhere. I'll look for it and relay more info if you want it.
As for textile arts, I really don't know that much. I need to do some
research myself. I spin wool using a drop spindle. Spinning wheels didn't
come in until about 1500 or so--I've heard conflicting dates. Some people
will tell you 1400 or thereabouts. I just know more about this stuff than I
do about some of the early tribes who settled in this area!! :-)

this message to them?
I'm trying to find out if there is some reason for spinning wheels
being developed so late in period. Unless my information about how
they work is all wrong, it seems to me that spinning wheels could
have been invented several hundred years before they were; they don't
use any process or invention that wasn't known to the Romans, do
