Portland Handweavers Guild

Portland Handweavers Guild (PHG) was formally organized in September of 1945. As a member guild of Weaving Guilds of Oregon (WeGO) and the Association of Northwest Weavers (ANWG), we participate in their projects and take an active part in conference activities both as a group and as individuals. Most of our members come from within a 50 to 80 mile radius of the Portland (Oregon) Metropolitan Area.


Our purpose is:

  •  To promote excellence in handweaving, spinning and related arts
  • To help weavers, spinners, and other fiber artists a place to advance their skills through speakers, workshops, study groups, and the use of our textile library and other resources
  • To educate the public about the traditions and value of handweaving through annual exhibits of members work, our Annual Sale, and through on-going public demonstrations of weaving, spinning and other fiber arts

The Portland Handweavers Guild (PHG) has promoted excellence in handweaving, spinning and other fiber arts for over 60 years. Whatever your fiber interests, we hope that our programs will challenge you with new ideas and new directions to explore.

Message from President Rebecca Martin

Spring is here though it feels like summer today. Time flies, and with it, certain business must be tended, such as filling Board positions.


The Guild needs interested members for Membership, Grant Chair and Secretary. Dianne Seymour can provide excellent support in passing on the Membership position. Vicki McArdle, our Grant recipient last year, took on the job of Grant Chair and can share what that job entails. Robin Frasier is moving, unfortunately for us, so a new Secretary is needed. Here's what Robin said in an email to the Board when sending out her last minutes:


"I enjoyed working with you all, as well. I wish members knew how much more integrated with the Guild they would feel if they joined the Board. When I came to Guild meetings, I felt like I had friends and wasn't just observing. Thanks to everyone for your friendship."


I think every one of us who has been on the Board has said something to that affect, because it is what happens. You do feel more a part of the guild and you do make friends, really creative and fun friends. If you joined this guild to become part of a community, have some connection with people interested in what you love (weaving! fiber arts!) then take on a position. If you have any questions, please talk with any one of the Board members. Come on, it will be fun!


Rebecca Martin, PHG President
