Crochet Museum

Now, I couldn't tell a crochet hook from a shepherd's crook, but I know a quality museum when I see one. This fascinating little number is to be found in the desert town of Joshua Tree, California. It sits behind a very small and rather odd little residential and art complex called The Art Queen.

The museum is housed in a converted photo booth and it contains everything you could possibly want of a crocheted nature. And more.

The photo booth remains unlocked and open to all at any time, which I think is both trusting and charming. Little note pads hang on the wall for grateful visitors to jot their thoughts. Some take it more seriously than others:

Flicking through the visitor comments I saw reference to the fact that amongst the doilies and the dollies, there was a crocheted taco. I ransacked the place until I found it. Bon appetit!

Would that the rest of the world would take a lesson from the crochet museum. And that there would be some iced coffee and biscuits next door.

Is that sign written in Scrabble (TM) letters?

Is it wrong that the crochet Tacho made me hungry. The answer is yes. What a wonderful albeit scary place, thanks for sharing and imbedding it in my subconcious.
