Elise Songs sung by [textile] Spinners (26) RE: Songs sun by Spinners 08 Feb 01

It's true, the title of this thread could easily be Songs sung by Spinsters (if the spinners are female). I've always been told that when a woman was particularly good at spinning her family would be reluctant to have her marry, since she was a good source of income. Thus an unmarried woman is a spinster.
