We stopped at the shop where I bought a mug rug and a bag of scraps for my own crafts. We didn't have time to see the Museum, but there was plenty of interesting things to read about and see in the shop.

I was very impressed with the museum. I have been there 3 times over the past 3 years and each time was completely different and just as enjoyable. I am not a rug hooker yet I was surprised by the incredible talent and designs.

While I had to talk my travel companions into visiting this museum (I am a rug hooker) they all came away inspired. The men were amazed at the artefacts that related to rug hooking, they enjoyed looking at all sorts of turn of the century...More
