Portland Handweavers Guild

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.


Handwovens for the Holidays, PHG's Fall Sale, will be held November 14, 15 and 16, 2014 at the Multnomah Arts Center. This is your opportunity to get a large variety of hand made, spun, woven and dyed gifts for your loved ones this holiday season. See below for the address and times of the sale.


Scroll down for details.


Here are the Details: Costs to the artists remain the same as last year. Rent on booth space is fifty cents a square foot with 10% commission on sales. Set up for the sale is on Friday afternoon from 2 PM to 4 PM.

We have two options for members:  First is to reserve a booth or half booth to set up your own sales display or to share with another artist. Please contact Liz Winsche if you want to reserve space. Booths are assigned on a first come, first served basis.
Second is to participate in the Guild Booth, a great choice if you are trying out the water for future sales or only have a few items ready to sell this year. Janis Johnson is coordinating the guild booth this year. Contact her if you are interested. Artists in the guild booth pay their share of the booth space fee as well as commission.
As always, we need your help:
Demonstrations- Ladella Williams
Publicity-  Susie Hart-Walker
contact her if you have ideas for publications that would be good candidates for press releases.
Sales- Rory Mutton and Monica Shanahan will be operating the central sales desk.
Weftovers- Jane Read
Donations can be left at Ruthie's Weaving Studio or brought to a guild meeting.
Volunteers are always needed and welcome to help set up the auditorium for the sale on Friday afternoon as well as to break down and clean up the space on Sunday afternoon!  Consider coming along to help.


Portland Handweavers Guild 2015 Spring Sale

Time to sign up for the Spring Sale!

We will again be participating in the Gathering of the Guilds Spring Sale at the Oregon Convention Center, Hall A on the weekend of April 24-26, 2015 along with the Creative Metal Arts Guild, Oregon Glass Guild, Portland Bead Society and the Oregon Woodworkers Guild. Hall A is the right hand side of the Hall that the Potters usually use for their sale. The Spring Sale is one of our main ways to promote weaving and fiber arts to the community. We hope that you will join in the fun!


Members of PHG are invited to sell their beautiful weavings and other fiber art in the sale. You can request your own booth or share with up to 2 other people. There will be a Guild booth for people who want to enter a few items. Applications are due by January 16, 2015. Click here for the Spring Sale Entry and Info form.
