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.

You can be part of this experience by volunteering or demonstrating. Contact our intrepid volunteer coordinator, Janis Johnson.

Volunteer at our Spring Fiber Arts Sale
April 21-23, 2017

Once again PHG's Fiber Arts Sale is part of the Gathering of the Guilds at the Oregon Convention Center, which this year takes place April 21, 22, and 23. This is our biggest opportunity of the year to talk to the public about weaving and other fiber arts, and volunteering is a fun way to get to know other guild members.

One way to help is with fiber arts demonstrations. PHG will provide a warped floor loom, rigid heddle loom and inkle loom. Beginners are welcome to demonstrate: you know a lot more than the people asking you questions, and you'll get a chance to try different equipment. Demonstrators are also welcome to bring their own equipment and materials with which to demonstrate fiber arts techniques.

Within the sale area we'll need help at the sales table, with security at the exits to the PHG area, and general assistance for customers and participating artists.

Descriptions of volunteer opportunities at the sale can be found here
Sign-up sheets will be available at upcoming PHG meetings.
Contact Janis Johnson, the volunteer coordinator for the sale, she can answer questions or sign you up: email  or phone her 503-643-5643.
