Meet Meghan - Machine Technician

Meghan joined gather here prior the pandemic, we even managed to send Meghan to Illinois for Bernina machine technician certification and longarm training prior to everything shutting down. Meghan started as a part-time employee and transitioned to full-time. During the height of the pandemic Meghan helped with our mask-making efforts, pulled and packed orders, as well as cleaned, oiled, and adjust hundred of sewing machines that had been pulled out of attics, basements, and back closets. When did you start making things? I learned how to sew from my mother when I was about 5, and I've been making things ever...

Meet Gianna - Instructor and Craft Associate

Gianna joined gather here in September of 2019 and we thought she would be studying abroad in 2020 but then *the pandemic*. Gianna returned part-time in September 2020, cutting fabric, helping out in the studio, and sewing a bunch of tea towel calendars. When did you start making things? I’ve been making things ever since I can remember! I’m an only child, and growing up, imagination and creativity were really important to me. I learned to sew (with a machine) in my freshman year of high school (2013?), working on plays in the tiny costume shop, and haven’t stopped since!...

2019 Women's History Month: Meet Ciara

If you've visited the shop in March you may have seen some new faces. In late February we added 6 part-time team members to the gather here staff. Everyone has a wealth of knowledge about at least one fiber craft (if not more) and Ciara blew us away with her crochet skills. We know you are going to want to follow her work on Instagram and we hope to exhibit her pieces at the shop, too. They are so inspiring! Check out some examples in our interview. When did you start making things?I have been making all sorts of things...

2019 Women's History Month: Meet Kendra

We wanted to highlight some of our team members that are working behind the scenes daily like our inventory manager, Kendra. Kendra joined the team soon after we moved from Broadway in Mid-Cambridge to Inman Square. We had never had a full-time inventory person and it's been such a relief to have someone on the team dealing with all our suppliers and making sure we never run out of thread or muslin (we still run out of knitting needles but that's supply not meeting demand). You may see Kendra occasionally covering the front desk or processing a special order but...
