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.

Portland Handweavers Guild 2016 Spring Sale

 

Our Spring Sale in conjunction with The Gathering of the Guilds will be on the weekend of April 22-24 in 2016 at the Oregon Convention Center.

The 2015 event was very successful. Not only did the Guild benefit financially from the sale, many of our members did quite well, too. In addition, attendees were able to interact one-on-one with fiber artists, whether it was on the sales floor or watching demonstrations or participating in the family activities. A huge plus is the presence of the other Guilds (Portland Bead Society, Oregon Glass Guild, Guild of Oregon Woodworkers, Creative Metal Arts Guild).

Please join us this year. Below is a downloadable document containing an informational letter and an entry form. Entry forms must be received on or before February 5, 2016. We will assign booth spaces on February 6 and you will receive your booth assignment and additional information shortly thereafter.

Be sure to read carefully the letter and entry form because there are some changes from last year, particularly the Entry Standards, Cancellation Policy, and Fee Options Changes.

The sale committee welcomes Kim Thompson who is overseeing the Guild booth. She joins Margaret Zeps, Monica Shanahan, Rory Mutton, Ladella Williams, Chris and me. If you would like to be part of the committee and learn the inside workings of the sale, we'd love to have you.

Please contact us if we can answer any questions. Download the application and info
