Portland Handweavers Guild

Portland Handweavers Guild (PHG) was formally organized in September of 1945. As a member guild of Weaving Guilds of Oregon (WeGO) and the Association of Northwest Weavers (ANWG), we participate in their projects and take an active part in conference activities both as a group and as individuals. Most of our members come from within a 50 to 80 mile radius of the Portland (Oregon) Metropolitan Area.

 

Our purpose is:

  •  To promote excellence in handweaving, spinning and related arts
  • To help weavers, spinners, and other fiber artists a place to advance their skills through speakers, workshops, study groups, and the use of our textile library and other resources
  • To educate the public about the traditions and value of handweaving through annual exhibits of members work, our Annual Sale, and through on-going public demonstrations of weaving, spinning and other fiber arts

The Portland Handweavers Guild (PHG) has promoted excellence in handweaving, spinning and other fiber arts for over 60 years. Whatever your fiber interests, we hope that our programs will challenge you with new ideas and new directions to explore.

President's Message

A very exciting new project is in the works that will provide focus and opportunity for collaboration within our theme "Fiber to Fashion". The Members Only page on this website will play a key roll in connecting members who wish to work on it.

This project will be introduced at our September meeting. Our speaker Betty Long-Schlief from The Maryhill Museum will talk on Théâtre de la Mode. This most amazing collaborative undertaking from Paris in 1945 is a hint to our project. 1945 was the year PHG was formed, so we have a 70 year celebration to look forward to in 2015. It's going to be a fun year.
