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...

Samples Worth Writing About: Cielo Dress

Part 2 of our sample "collection" of Closet Core Patterns. This is the Cielo Dress, View C/D - a shift dress with inseam pockets AND dramatic gathered long sleeves.

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...
