A New Flock and Gather

Friends of Flock and Gather!
It is a new year, and we have news to share. As of January, Carole, Dana, Erin, and Wayne have decided to hand over the reigns of Flock and Gather to a new and excited group of makers.

The Flock and Gather events and sales have humble beginnings, and we are all so proud to be part of how it has grown and taken shape. We have loved pouring our energy into creating a fun and thoughtful market environment, and we have definitely felt the community support behind our makers and the willingness to buy locally. For all of this, we are incredibly grateful. To our vendors, fellow artists and makers, customers, supporters, and our families and friends, this was all possible because of you.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The Flock and Gather Markets and events will continue on with fresh ideas and a new group leading the passion for handmade, and we are so grateful for that as well. If you are a vendor, please watch here on the blog and on the facebook page this coming Tuesday for the Springtime Handmade Market dates and application deadlines.

Signing off are all of our founding members:
