Founder, designer and maker, Whitney Crutchfield has been a textile lover ever since her mom taught her how to sew a reversible Barbie skirt in their basement in rural Michigan. She has been deeply influenced and led into the textile community by a number of strong, talented people.
After obtaining an MFA in Fibers in Colorado, she landed in Brooklyn, where her textile obsession materialized in a number of different ways, including crafting at Martha Stewart, teaching at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons School of Design, and Textile Arts Center, and designing textiles for a major teen apparel retailer.
Her heart and passion were not in the world of mass production and fleeting trends, with over ten years of weaving, dyeing, and teaching experience under her belt, she turned her efforts fully to sharing the magic of textiles through WE GATHER. These carefully assembled at-home weaving and dyeing kits and thoughtfully and ethically-made products are produced right in her Brooklyn studio.
