Shop crush: Gather Here
Here's the honest truth: I have a crush on a shop, and it isn't some ethereal virtual shop either, it's a brick-and-mortar, in-real-life location you can go to and visit to fondle fabrics and yarns. And MAKE things!
Virginia and Noah have opened an oasis of beauty, creativity and how-to in Cambridge, Massachusetts called Gather Here. And I have! I have totally gathered there and I plan to do so again in the nearest future possible. The place is gorgeous, filled with high-quality fabrics and notions as well as yarns.
I got to see and purchase DaisyJanie and Cloud 9 fabrics that I have been admiring online forever!!
I'm not much of a sewer, as you know, but Gather Here can help me, they teach classes.
If you like to make things, if you like to be surrounded by attractive textiles and friendly folk, please go check out Gather Here pronto!!
