From bags to tube tops

Inspired by the fabulous canine muse Milli, Milligear opened up in 2007 as a shop for elegant, simple, functional handmade bags. In 2008, the shop went on a LONG hiatus so Gayle could focus on her growing family and her career.

In 2012, Gayle's nine month old daughter Robin was diagnosed with leukemia. Along with the diagnosis came a new implanted accessory for Robin - the Hickman central venous catheter. Dissatisfied with the lack of affordable options for keeping the dangling tubes out of Robin's hands and away from germs, Gayle spent a lot of time developing a device that would fit the bill.

In March 2013, Robin started long term maintenance chemotherapy. With the intensive treatment over and a tiny bit of free time (when she's not working at her full time hospital programming job or chasing her kids), Gayle was inspired to create "Hickman Hiders" for other young children with special medical attachments.
