I subscribe to a free website called Delancey Place. Each weekday they post an excerpt from some nonfiction book. The topics range widely from History, Science, Financial, Biographical, Art etc. The excerpt is usually short, a page or two, but I find most of them really interesting and educational.
Today's excerpt is titled the "Emergence of Cotton". As quilters this is a very important topic! To think that the East Indian Trading Co. (started in 1600) began importing Cotton goods from India and that ultimately changed the way Europeans dressed (and trickled down to us quilter) is really fascinating.
