Cathy of California tipped me off to the new World Famous Crochet Museum, curated by Shari Elf, on Highway 62 in Joshua Tree. I’ve always wanted to go out to the national park, and never had a chance yet in the year and a half we’ve been living in LA, so now we’re definitely planning a trip… maybe for my birthday in January? I can’t wait to see all the crochet-ness in person.
It’s open on weekends during the winter from 12-5, along with the Art Queen Gallery and an adjoining biodiesel station. Besides the museum’s own website, you can also check out Ann Magnuson’s review of their opening party, and a flickr slide show of photos by Mark Pritchard. Thanks to Cathy for spreading the gospel of vintage craft!
