A dress historian that I follow on twitter spotted this large and unusual sampler that I thought might interest some of the folks in our group.


@AldenBrien The Deerfield (MA) antiques show is online and I love this enormous long "sampler" of crochet, lace, and tatting designs. What a wall hanging it would make! #crochettwt #textiles
