In this week’s episode, Sarah is speaking with Angela Kelly and Kim McCollum, the founders of Gather. Gather is a yarn shop and textile studio in Edmonton, Alberta. Their aim is to bring people together to exchange ideas, learn from one another, and to celebrate making things with our hands.

Greetings from South Louisiana!

I am a brown cotton grower. I want to learn to spin and weave. I know my Acadian ancestors were talented, yet very few spinners and weavers in this area. I know of only two. I want to revive those activities . Where do I begin?

We are in the process of establishing a French Immersion Campus in an old hospital. There is a large room that I have selected for our Textile Dept. Saint Luc French Immersion Campus and Cultural Center should be operating next yr, we hope. want to come to Louisiana and teach us??

I love these young women. I found them on Instagram a few weeks/months ago and have loved how they’ve presented their web presence.
