About Gathered Events
I have always been a crafter. Since I can remember, I was the little girl who would rather play with beads and glitter glue than watch TV. Even when it wasn't cool, I was crafting. Making accessories, embellishing my bedroom furniture, mixing my own nail polish. I started my button collection at the age of 6 with a special pair made of glittery clear plastic. My 6-yr-old eyes almost exploded when I found them. I quickly added the prettiest flowery buttons I could find... and a crafting collector was born. Since then, I've added to my buttons with a whole room-sized hoard of fabrics, yarns, tools, machines, & all kinds of antique-shop pretties. My love for Etsy started about 3 years ago when I turned my knitting obsession into a small shop called ElseyElle (ElseyElle.Etsy.com). I found so much joy in making tiny (and not so tiny) bits of femininity. Making has always been what I go back to after everything else. I've now turned my love for craft into a full-time job with Gathered. As a soon-to-be bride myself, I realized that there are MANY wedding elements out there in the world, but not many that are truly beautiful. My pieces are made using heirloom quality materials gleaned from my own vintage collection. These pieces, which have already stood the test of time, are now being given a beautiful new purpose and life.
