It's officially Socktober! Kid President said so!

Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, SoulPancake and Kid President want 2 million people (last year they challenged 1 million folks to step up and donate to their neighborhood homeless shelters) to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. <PREVIEWEND>

gather here is running a "sock" drive to help. Donate your hand-knits for those who could really use them. Socks, scarves, hats, and mittens are all welcome. We recommend a washable fiber so that your donation doesn't end up felting and shrinking when washed/dried. And make your donation in any size because being homeless doesn't have an age limit. Nearly 1.6 million children are homeless in the United States! 

You have until October 31st to drop off your donation. When you make a donation you'll receive a 15% off coupon to use on your next in-store purchase. It's our way of saying "thanks" for being totally awesome. We know you're busy. We know you are bombarded with requests. But we also know you love to make things. And that making things makes the world a little better.

We have no doubt that we can change the world if we do it together. So please spread the word and make something for someone in need. For some sock pattern inspiration check out our Summer of Socks Pinterest board.

Superstorm Sandy Red Cross Fundraiser

As some of you know, I ended up "stranded" in Houston waiting to fly home from International Quilt Market. It was my first Quilt Market and I was so excited to go. I couldn't wait to talk to some of our tried and true vendors, open new accounts with fashion-forward companies like Michael Miller, and ogle the amazing booth designs. Such a wonderful source of inspiration and it's like being "in the future". But by Saturday afternoon people were huddled in the lobbies, on the phone with airlines trying to get home right then and there because of Superstorm Sandy. My flight had yet to be cancelled so I continued about my business. Looking at fabric, opening accounts, deciding what the shelves of gather here would look like in 2013.

By Sunday many people had hopped on planes home. But my flight was still on schedule. Until late that afternoon. I managed to re-route my flight to Manchester, New Hampshire to arrive on Monday. Only to have my flight cancelled again. And again. An inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. I clung to my phone and iPad for the next few days. On Monday morning, Noah and Carla went in and contacted everyone in our Monday night classes to reschedule. They updated our outgoing voicemail message. Hung up signs announcing we would close at 1. I updated the website and social media outlets with the news that we would be closing early. Then I got on the phone and waited. I wanted to be home. If Sandy was going to wallop the Northeast, I wanted to be there with my family. But I was safely stranded in Houston. Until Wednesday.

I obsessively followed twitter and Facebook over the next few days. Searching for updates. My friends and former students were evacuated from their homes in New York and New Jersey, many without power or transportation. Former colleagues were displaced. Some will be forced to relocate forever. What can any of us do in the face of such a disaster?

When Joplin, Missouri was hit by a devastating tornado we hosted an online fundraising raffle. We raised over $3500 for the Red Cross. We hope to do the same this time around. Actually, we hope to raise $4000 this time. The process is exactly the same. You make a donation, you are entered to win an awesome prize by awesome people. Like the button-collecting bird tote by Egg-a-go-go or the peep boot stocking by Lizzy House pictured below. We've put out a call to many of our vendors as well as the maker community to see if we can drum up awesome prizes to share with you. And of course we'll be donating product (like all the swag I brought home from Quilt Market!) and some of our best handmade goods. We'll be posting the prizes on Tuesday, November 6th after we've had a chance to collect photos and descriptions from our generous donors. (Don't worry, there will be many prizes and many opportunities to win something fabulous!)

How's this going to work?
For every $10 you donate to the Red Cross, you get a virtual raffle ticket. Donate $10 you get 1 ticket; donate $50 you get 5 chances to win a prize, $100 gets you 10 chances.

We're (Virginia & Noah) donating $100 to get this party started.

So go to the Red Cross Donate Funds page and make a donation. When you confirm your donation you'll receive a tracking code which is really important. It's not only in the confirmation page, it's also in the printable tax receipt which you can save as a pdf, AND it's in the emailed receipt that they'll automatically send you. If you donate via text message simply text: REDCROSS to 90999 to automatically donate $10. You'll receive a text message confirmation. Save that text, take a screen capture of it because you'll want to have that number handy when you win.

Finally, leave a comment on this post. Only one is necessary even if you are super generous and donate hundreds of dollars. You need to include the transaction code and donation amount in your comment.

  • Leave a comment - include your donation amount
  • Include your transaction code
  • Your email address so we can contact you should you win! If you comment via a Disqus account we can contact via that.

How we'll be tracking this raffle:
When you submit a comment we'll assign you a raffle ticket number. We'll create a tracking post on this here blog so everyone knows their raffle number and so we can all track the fundraising amounts. We'll update the page every evening until fundraising concludes on Thursday, November 22nd at midnight. That's over 2 weeks to make our fundraising goal!

Then like any good online raffle we'll have the random number generator select the winners on Friday, November 23rd right after Thanksgiving! Yay - winning! Announcements will be made on the blog and we'll contact you via email, too. IMPORTANT: Keep the confirmation email you receive from the Red Cross - you'll have to send that to us when we contact you. You can send it right away by forwarding it to:

Also, please, please, please help us spread the word about this raffle. Post it on your blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. The more people know, the more funds we will raise to assist with the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. We have badges that you can share on your blog!

Run Like an Antelope

You may not realize this about me (Virginia) but my super power is remembering people. I usually can remember a person, his/her name and what she/he was working on. Perhaps even ask about the big date you were going on after a Saturday sewing class or get an update on your house hunting/buying. I make a point of asking lots of questions when I'm teaching or mingling at Pints 'n Purls. You can't have me cut your fabric without being peppered with questions about what you are making. And if you end up asking me about yarn, well, I'll be stalking your progress on Ravelry before you even have time to knit a swatch. I'm totally being honest when I say, "share a picture or bring it in." Because I remember you.


above: Megan Lally from her Pink Blog <PREVIEWEND>

This super power confession brings me to this post. I remember Megan. She homebrewed some amazing blueberry ale and brought it to a Pints 'n Purls in spring of 2011. She was sitting at the head of the old oak table. She was generous enough to offer me a glass of beer. Which we proceeded to spill everywhere. And we laughed so hard about it. And I admired her whale zippered box bag. Made with whale fabric from the store. Bought right after we had opened. It wasn't actually hers, she had made it for her sister, Jocelyn. She never mentioned metastatic breast cancer. Or anything about her health. She was full of life. She was 31.

I received a request today to sponsor The First Annual Memorial 5K Run and Fun Walk for Megan Lally to benefit Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. I wish Gather Here was over the hurdle, that we had finished our new studio expansion and that all the additional classes were paying for it. Because I would give so much money to sponsor this run. We're committing to being a Friend Sponsor, maybe if August is a super profitable month we'll go Bronze. Megan and Jocelyn's friend, Greeley sent us a message via Facebook about the run. Greeley is one of the most awesome people I've met since opening the store. And I know this Memorial 5K is something she is committed to. And now we are, too. Because this generous, wonderful woman should still be here. Knitting socks. Sewing bags. Doing normal things with the people who really did know her and remember her.

The race is on October 14th in Worcester. There will be beer. There will be music. And yes, there will be a 5K race along Lake Quinsagamond. There's a certain sewing physician that has been nudging me to get back to running...Suzin (if you're reading this blog), I think we should run this 5K. And maybe "you" should register, too. We can run this together, we can honor the memory of a knitter who made a hell of a blueberry ale and died way too young.

Don't think you can run? Donate to the Megan Lally Memorial Fund here. And thank you.

Helping Others: Joplin, Missouri Red Cross Fundraiser

When I heard the news about Joplin I felt terrible for the town that I had stopped in many times to grab fuel and snacks on various Midwestern road trips. Just like my friend, Adrian, wrote on Facebook, "I used to stop in Joplin, Missouri for food and gas taking road trips out of Chicago. Really nice people there. It's just one of the last classic Route 66 towns. The kind of place built by the highway that really embraces road travelers and car culture. It's hard to imagine 75% of that town as wiped out last night." Who didn't feel awful when the images started popping up on the news and internet? And small? Mother Nature has a way of making me feel very, very small.

<PREVIEWEND> I didn't think that I might actually know someone affected by this disaster even though I'm originally from the Midwest. Most of my family is in Iowa, Illinois and Kansas. There are outliers up in Minnesota and I'm sure some folks ended up in Nebraska and we've spent many a great vacation in St. Louis. But Joplin? Surely it's just a road trip memory. Not so. My sister-in-law's family lives in Joplin. And in a number of the images I've seen on the news there are the remains of her mother's house. Just a stone wall with a few windows. Not a tree in sight. She's lucky to be alive. The dog and cat are safe, too. As are most of her neighbors. There are many who are not. And they could use our help.

We're having a little raffle to raise money for the Red Cross Relief Efforts in Joplin, Missouri as well as the many other communities that have been affected by severe weather this year (Western Massachusetts we heart you!). Our goal is to raise $2,500 but we did that so let's raise $3,000! And we've already started receiving amazing prizes from talented and caring people like the Boston Bead Company, Rhinofluff, Fleur de Fiber, Daisy Janie, Made in Lowell, The Merriweather Council, The Orange Owl, Red Staggerwing Designs, Soto Softies, Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cloud9 Fabrics, Mike Burke, and Tanuki Dyeworks. We've put out a call to many of our vendors as well as the crafty genius community to see if we can drum up even more awesomeness to share with you. And of course we'll be donating product (fat quarter bundles, yarn, patterns) and our best handmade goods. We'll be posting the prizes on Tuesday, May 31st after we've had a chance to collect photos and descriptions from our generous donors. (Don't worry, there will be many prizes and many opportunities to win something fabulous!)

UPDATE: More crafty genius prizes!  From Knit Collage, Shortcake Scraps, The Spun Monkey, Lush Beads, Post Road, Not Without Merit, Dirty Water Dyeworks, Stray Notions, Needle and Spatula, Sparkle J Designs & Codi of Home Ec. Workshop!
