Jacquie Samples pointed out that in medieval days, textile work was some of
the first stuff that came into the towns.  This may be true, but I was
thinking of US pioneers, since I had the impression that the person who
asked about dyes was not in the SCA, although the discussion had veered
somewhat strongly in that direction.  My discussion of people dyeing their
own yarn should have more clearly pointed at the early USA.

I was going to post on knitting and crochet, but Tamar beat me to it.  <g>
