A Gift to You

In the summer of 2014 Virginia and Noah spent many long hours working on the feature film, Black Mass. The film premiered in September of 2015 and we couldn't be more proud of our work.

Our very good friend, Christine Tobin , was the film's food stylist and we asked her to share the Christmas cookie recipe. Christine baked dozens of cookies for the film's (brief) Bulger Family Christmas dinner set in the early '80's. We actually filmed that scene on a rainy, humid June day in Savin Hill. We hope you enjoy these cookies and thank you for making 2015 a truly wonderful year.

Sharing Knowledge: How to attach a binding to a quilt

But we wanted to do even more. Combining our background in film/television and our love of craft, we decided the next step for gather here would be the launch of video tutorials. We compiled a list of the techniques we are most often asked about in the store, via email, and in our classes and mapped out a plan to launch a new tutorial each month.
