June 2022 - We Care Wednesday

It's June and you know what that means, Happy Pride! gather here is proudly queer-owned and thrilled to employ a number of LGBTQ+ folx. In May we received a fundraiser donation request and we countered with, "why not be our We Care Wednesday recipient for June?" We're excited to share that The Network/LA Red, a Boston-based nonprofit that works to end partner abuse and support survivors in LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and kink communities is our June recipient. From Miriam, the grassroots fundraising coordinator for The Network/LA Red, "The funds make a huge difference and being visible in community spaces does, too....

MAY 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

(this particular blog post was written by gather here's founder, Virginia B. Johnson.) While watching the livestream of the 2022 MetGala on Monday, May 2, 2022 my breaking news alert went off and the headline, "Supreme Court poised to strike down Roe v. Wade..." popped up on my screen. I clicked the link and stopped paying attention to fashions' take on "The Gilded Age" instead reading in dread the news that I suppose I knew all along was coming.

APRIL 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

A few months ago a nurse from Riverside Community Care reached out to us to inquire if we would be willing to donate our machine repair services to cleaning and oiling a machine donated to a refugee family.

RCC is a community-based non-profit organization serving more than 40,000 people a year in Massachusetts,...

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...
