Powerhouse Museum online sampler book filled with vintage fabrics

Isn't this wonderful? The Powerhouse Museum has collated its vast collection of antique fabric samplers and offered them online as a sample book. The swatches are wonderful - and you can zoom so far into the weft and warp that you can see weave, effect and fibre (almost!). The samplers are dated 1830s to 1020s and is available to view here.

BTW - I wouldn't recommend a garage sale unless you're willing to see all of your lovely items (that we shouldn't have sold!) up for sale on ebay. Hrumpf...dealers!
