Meet Kayleigh - Craft Associate

In late summer of 2021 we realized that now that the shop was actually open seven days a week and the rush of fall and holiday crafting was on the horizon that we needed in-person support. Molly and Virginia zoomed with Kayleigh, who loves all sorts of crafts and is an awesome illustrator, too, AND had recently relocated to the area. Kayleigh's experience at a big box craft store meant they had experienced holiday rushes (the likes we probably will never experience) and massive restocks and could navigate themselves around a variety of crafts and skill levels. By now you've...

Could you be our next craft associate?

We're nearly two years into a global pandemic and while some of gather here has changed a lot (we don't teach quite as many workshops as we used to) we are still open 7 days a week and want to make sure everyone who visits us has our attention. And everyone who shops online gets their order packed and shipped in a timely manner, too. We're feeling spread thin since in-store shopping resumed last summer and are hoping to fill a couple positions in the coming months. Perhaps that's where YOU come in? But before you email us a copy...

Meet Charles - Craft Associate

In the summer of 2020 we posted that we were looking for some part-time help and were thrilled when Charles applied. Charles had taken some sewing and quilting workshops prior to the pandemic and was also an avid crocheter. He also blew us away during his interview with craft examples that varied from sewing to knitting to wood carving! When did you start making things? I started crocheting about 10 years ago, and what keeps me interested in crochet is how easily you can influence the structure through alternating different types of stitches. Crochet is still my favorite craft, whether...

Meet Harriette - Craft Associate

When we started to prepare for some version of being "open" in 2021 we needed to find some fiber help. Harriette joined the team in February, learning how things worked in the "before times" as well as how things were operating in the "uncertain times". For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of meeting Harriette in-person, we're excited to introduce you to her here! When did you start making things?My mom is a teacher and one of the benefits as a very bookish child was taking home leftover books from the book fair. The summer before high school...

Meet Kaylan - Kids Programming Instructor & craft consultant

Kaylan joined the gather here team part-time in the fall of 2020. Kaylan had been a pre-pandemic customer and frequent maker, participating in our in-person community crafting events to benefit those experiencing houselessness in Cambridge. Kaylan's museum-programming experience made her a natural fit in the classroom and we have loved having her lead our 2020 summer programs. When did you start making things? When I was a kid, I wanted to be an inventor when I grew up. I spent a lot of time making contraptions, tinkering, learning how things work, and focusing on math and science in school.  It wasn't until adulthood...
