About We Gather:

We Gather
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. After obtaining a MFA in Fibers and enjoying the clean air of Colorado, she landed in Brooklyn, and it instantly felt like home. Her textile obsession has materialized here in a number of different ways, including crafting at Martha Stewart, teaching at the Textile Arts Center, FIT, and Parsons School of Design, and most recently designing printed textiles for a major teen apparel retailer.

My heart and passion, however, were not in the world of mass production and fleeting trends. So, with over ten years of weaving and dyeing experience under her belt, she turned her efforts fully to creating objects that last, textiles that we can be with and touch, things that become imbued with memory and simple meaning and remind us of the joys, excitement, and comfort that we experience together.
