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 Letter

Happy Holidays!

With Thanksgiving just behind us, we are hip-deep in the holiday season. We close 2017 with festivals of joy and light – and traditional colors of red, green, silver, and blue. The winter solstice brings the longest night, but then we start seeing longer days and look forward to the lighter, brighter future.  

Remember that this year’s theme of the year is all about color. What are you doing to explore color? Did you find something wild and wonderful at this fall’s Handwovens for the Holidays, Above the Fray, or another great fiber art sale? Have you created something using a color combination you’ve never tried before? Please bring your ideas, projects, and treasures to share with others at this December’s program.    

Have a wonderful holiday season, and may 2018 be a Happier New Year.

Sue Walsh, President

The Mannequin Project

PHG's Mannequin Project provided focus and opportunity for collaboration within 2014-15's theme "Fiber to Fashion". Inspiration came from The Maryhill Museum, which houses a most extraordinary collection of fashion, Théâtre de la Mode. This work originated from an amazing collaborative undertaking in Paris in 1945. PHG created a display of 10 mannequins that show how gorgeous handwoven cloth can be. Each mannequin is dressed in an outfit that is at least 50% handwoven. The mannequins have been on display at the Convention Center during our spring sale and have recently spent a few months in the windows at The Button Emporium in downtown Portland.
