When you step into this old Fotomat kiosk, you are instantly surrounded by shelves and shelves of yarn-based wonders. There are sections devoted to different animals, with poodles figuring prominently. Crocheted people and various other items round out the collection. Look for the crocheted bathroom...More

You can see the building but don't get too excited about it. Lots of dolls and the rest is a non entity. The artist is nice at the Art Queen store.

This is a quirky little stop in a quirky town. I love to crochet and was amazed by the beautiful little creations in here. You can fit two people in here at a time, it's adorable. You've got to stop at Noah's Art as well....More

My girlfriend liked all the interesting things in there. I had to drag here out. It's got a hippy vibe to it. Many arts and crafts things. Lots of vintage clothing. It's just a fun place to visit and the prices are very reasonable.

Stop by if you're passing this, as it's such an interesting stop to make. The artist is wonderful and she keeps herself busy with multiple things. Very cute things to see around here.

So here's how you get to be world famous, turn nothing into something. It's not the idea of being well known all over the world, or having a museum dedicated specifically to your craft, but to get one guy talking about your wares and then...More

... then worth popping in. I've never seen so many crocheted animals in one place. Free parking and entry - only takes a couple of minutes to visit.
