Portland Handweavers Guild

About Us

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 mission 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
