"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." --North Carolina Historical Review
"Mountain Homespun is much more than a memoir. It offers unrivaled specific information on the processes of mountain crafts--not only on weaving, spinning, and dyeing, the author's primary interest, but also on basketry, quilting, and other pursuits. All in all, the book is an important publishing event."
--Berea College Newsletter
"This is a wonderful book. It belongs at the bedside of every spinner and weaver everywhere." --Jude Daurelle, Handwoven
