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.

If you've been thinking about participating in the fall sale (Nov 11-13), don't procrastinate any longer! There are only three sales spaces left!!
You can find the entry forms below. 

There will be an informational meeting of all participants immediately following the morning meeting and immediately preceding the evening meeting in October (two opportunities, please try to attend one of them). It will be short and succinct! We're still looking for volunteers for demonstrations and a couple of folks to manage the Weftovers; please consider helping out with one or the other. This is such a great opportunity for community interaction! We're looking forward to a fabulous weekend!
 If you'd like to volunteer for a specific job, email Judilee at The more, the merrier!
Artist Entry Forms are available below, will be available at the Sept and Oct general meetings, or available via email request.All booth sizes and costs, commissions, and procedures remain the same as last year.  Here's to a fabulous sale!
Demonstration opportunity:
Seeking volunteers to demonstrate at our Fall Sale.  Friday evening, Saturday anytime from 10 to 4. Sunday, anytime from 10 to 4.
Contact Ladella  to let us know when you would like to weave, spin, or other demos. Both PHG looms will be available (threaded already). Bring your rigid heddle loom, table loom, tapestry loom to work on your own project.

In addition, we need someone to monitor setup Friday afternoon so we are ready to go Friday evening. And someone to take charge of the demo area on Saturday and/or Sunday and make sure all is going well. Signage put out for the volunteers and checking the schedule to see if people show up. (Ladella will likely not be available as the one workshop she really wants to take will be going on at the same time). Ladella will also be contacting those who expressed interest in demonstrating, however please do let her know for sure.

Gathering of the Guilds at the Oregon Convention Center

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.
