Summary & ldquo;Mountain Homespun will be of special interest to those studying southern Appalachian handicrafts, the 1890s handicraft revival, and northern Protestant missionary work in turn-of-the-century Appalachia. & rdquo; & mdash;North Carolina Historical Review & ldquo;Mountain Homespun is much more than a memoir. It offers unrivaled specific information on the processes of mountain crafts & mdash;not only on weaving, spinning, and dyeing, the author & rsquo;s primary interest, but also on basketry, quilting, and other pursuits. All in all, the book is an important publishing event. & rdquo; & mdash;Berea College Newsletter & ldquo;This is a wonderful book. It belongs at the bedside of every spinner and weaver everywhere. & rdquo; & mdash;Jude Daurelle, Handwoven
