Pr 31:19

Pr 31:19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

These verses talk about her spinning fibers she would later use to make clothing or other things needed by her family and others.

Now while I don't spin (I tried it, but didn't like it), I do knit, crochet, sew and quilt. Do I think every woman should do those things? Well if they enjoy it they should. But I don't think you have to do those things to be virtuous.

What I think these verses show is our hands should be busy doing something that glorifies God. They shouldn't be idle or doing something God wouldn't approve of us doing.
