JULY 2022 - WE CARE WEDNESDAY

Well... things aren't exactly great are they? We're on a roller coaster of emotions stemming from all the awful Supreme Court of the United States' decisions this session. And while we like to put on a brave face and roll up our sleeves and do the work (damn, this work never ends?), we are also tired. Tired of the systemic erasure of our right to bodily autonomy. Tired of the willful destruction of the planet. Tired of the colonial state. Tired of the war waged on the LBGTQ+ community. Tired that guns have more rights than people with a uterus....

We're Not Celebrating the 4th of July

gather here is CLOSED on Monday, July 4, 2022 and it's a paid holiday for our regularly scheduled team members. But that doesn't mean we are celebrating the founding of the United States (a country founded on stolen land). We ARE taking a day off from capitalism and the never-ending hustle to make payroll and rent and health benefits. We ARE reflecting on who is truly "free" in the US. And what we can do to protect existing freedoms while also expanding freedom for all. We're not alone in not feeling like celebrating, this Yahoo! article www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/people-canceling-july-4-roe-v-wade-ruling rounds up other...

Could you be our next craft associate?

Despite being a really awesome and compassionate place to work (not our words, ripped right out of someone's resignation letter), sometimes other opportunities arise and a team member heads off to explore what's next on their creative journey. And let's be honest, working in retail has been HARD throughout the pandemic - even a colorful, squishy fiber store doesn't change that. So we've got some positions to fill, helping in-store and behind the scenes making sure everyone who visits us has our attention. And everyone who shops online gets their order packed and shipped in a timely manner, too. Perhaps...

June 2022 - We Care Wednesday

It's June and you know what that means, Happy Pride! UPDATE: Pride Month may be over but don't you stop saying "Gay!" Your Wednesday shopping raised $900 for The Network/LA Red! 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...

MAY 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

(this particular blog post was written by gather here's founder, Virginia B. Johnson.) UPDATE: Thanks to your generous purchases in May (including workshops, machine repairs, and quilting) we donated $950 to Abortion Funds! 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. I...
