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:

Immensely Successful Spring Fiber Art Sale and Gigantic Thank You

The final report isn’t in because the sale has just ended. It was three wonderful days of being surrounded by six guilds and thousands of enthusiastic attendees who not only shopped and talked with our artists about how they make what they do, but watched our demonstrations and participated in our hands-on activities. Many people now have a better appreciation of the fiber arts!

Here’s what one of our participants, Debbie Ellis, told us, "I was very pleased with my sales, and delighted we were again with the OPA. The crowds were energized, and I heard many lovely compliments about our guild in particular. One even was disappointed that there weren't more PHG booths. I enjoyed meeting our new vendors, as well - brought some freshness to the event. And I also heard people expressing interest in possibly having a
booth next year, so that's a hopeful sign." Kim Thompson says "Thanks for a great event with fabulous fiber, friends, organization, and fun! This was the best yet; just think what the future will bring." 

 

It couldn’t have happened without the hard work of our artisans, the volunteers who worked and/or demonstrated at the show,  and the sale committee: Genie Stewart, Janis Johnson, Kim Thompson, Kathy Sengenberger, Ladella Williams, Margaret Zeps, Rory Mutton, Monica Shanahan, Diane McKinnon, Tom Poirier Rapp, and Joel Weber.

Thank you one and all.
