North of the columbia

Sue Kohut facilitates this study group that is an offshoot of the guild, approved a couple of years ago. They meet the 3rd Saturday of every month at Blizzard Yarn and Fiber, a local yarn and fiber shop in Vancouver, WA. About 9-10 people typically attend; click here for more info.

There is an Inkle study group meeting in NE Portland. If you would like to join let Amy know. We don't have set dates we meet but generally we meet when we can. Holidays will probably be more difficult.

indigo dye & fiber works

This open space studio is an 'ongoing study group' where fiber artists can collaborate and learn together. You may work with any fiber or dye that interests you. Fiber artists can teach, learn from and mentor each other in any fiber art, though natural dyeing is a main focus.


Joel Weber is the founder of this great community. email:

ANWG history of weaving group

The Association of Northwest Weaving Guilds (of which Portland Handweavers Guild is a member) has kicked of a new study group dedicated to the history of weaving in the Northwest. For their first project, "Wrapped in History," participants will design and weave a scarf or a shawl inspired by a “historical weaver” with connections to the Pacific Northwest. 

The deadline is June 10 2019, to coincide with a show & share at the 2019 ANWG conference in Prince George.  If you are interested in getting together to get ideas, inspiration from others, or just a little motivation, contact Sue Walsh:
