Sharing the Joy of Textiles

Every year, the Portland Handweavers Guild sponsors sales to promote and support the work of professional weavers and other textile artists and to educate the public about our craft.

 

PHG's Semi-Annual Sales

Our semi-annual sales are held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland in the Spring, and at the Multnomah Arts Center in the Fall. The public is invited to these fun events featuring many Northwest weavers and fiber artists plus fashion shows, weaving and spinning demonstrations, and hands-on activities for adults and children.

Spring Sale News:

Now that the busy days of summer are drawing to a close, we can shift our thoughts to the cooling days of fall, the coming coziness of winter, and the fresh growth of spring. Speaking of spring, mark your calendars for April 21 - 23, 2017 when we will once again participate in the fabulous Gathering of the Guilds at the Oregon Convention Center.

To make this even better, the Oregon Potters Association is returning to the fold. Yes, we'll be six guilds strong!  Be part of this energy: sell your work or volunteer or join the sale committee--do all three, if you like.

If you're not sure about selling your work, we have experienced folks who can mentor you. As for volunteering or being on the sale committee, no experience is required, just your enthusiasm!

The January or February newsletter will have the complete information and forms for signing up to sell. In the meanwhile, if you have any questions about selling, want to volunteer, or be on the sale committee, drop an email to one of the co-chairs.
