Gather DTLA brings yarn and fiber to the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Part of the Historic Core and Gallery Row we're located on the Mezzanine floor of The Last Bookstore, a 10,000 square foot historic space originally a bank...now pure feat of the imagination, housing thousands of [mostly] used books, records, artist studios and a growing community of creatives who think outside the box while staying rooted in their shared love of literature.
Gather is focused on sourcing supplies for knitting, crochet and spinning that are local, made in the US, fair-trade, and eco-friendly. You’ll find an urban oasis filled with hand-dyed, organic and unique materials and a community of talented yarnistas and design-a-saurs to help you with your fiber adventure. Whether you’re knitting a hat, looking for unusual art materials for your fiber project, or just trying to learn patience we offer classes, yarn tastings, designer workshops, and curate interesting fiber art from around the world.
And of course, the shop would be nothing without the amazing individuals who help us around the shop. Our staff, our instructors, the angels and superheros who help us behind the scenes.
There are two entrances to our location:
Betweeen 11am to 6pm this is the quickest way to get to the nook. The entrance is through the Spring Arts Tower lobby. When driving look 453 S. Spring St. Enter through the door, turn left through a side entrance and make a quick climb up a few stairs. We're just at the top!
Just West of Spring Street and going up 5th is the other corner of the building where you'll find the official MAIN entrance to The Last Bookstore pictured right. Use this door after 6pm (as the Spring Arts Tower business lobby gets locked for the night) and anytime you want to explore the bookstore first on your way to the nook. Look up as you enter the historic bank turned literary emporium and you'll see our vintage sign all lit up and happy to announce that yes! there is YARN! upstairs.
