What did they mean when they announced that "No man or woman should do any more work ... "?


Ramban: It incorporated both not bringing any more donations 1 and the women not spinning any more goats-hair - meaning that all activity relevant to the previous command cease.


Rashbam: They meant that the women, who spun the goats-hair at home, should cease doing so.


Seforno: They meant (not that they should not bring any more donations, but) that they should not do any more work for the Mishkan, such as spinning the goats-hair, making the wooden planks and preparing the hides.


Money (property) is called "Melachah", as we find in Shemos 22:7 and in Bereishis 33:14 (Ramban).
