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.

Spring 2018 Fiber Art Sale:

April 27-29, 2018
Oregon Convention Center
Online applications are now open for PHG's Spring Fiber Art Sale, which will take place April 27-29, 2018 at the Oregon Convention Center as part of the Gathering of the Guilds. Here is the prospectus with details. 

There are a few changes from last year:
Booths for the sale are a flat fee (between $300 and $400 for a 10x10 booth) with no commission and can be shared by up to four people.
This year we're introducing Adopt-a-Fiber-Artist. If you are new to selling and have just a few items to sell, some of our seasoned artists have extra room in their booths and would love to "adopt" you. There's more information about this program in the prospectus.


Participants may work quietly in their booths provided that the work doesn't inconvenience customers or other booths.
We won't have Central Checkout this year. Artists must handle their own sales but can process credit card sales through our bookkeepers using PHG's Square.
Each applicant, including those who were in the show last year, must submit photographs of their work. Not everyone has photos or knows how to take good ones, so we are organizing a session with a photographer who can help us. If you're interested, email us by January 4, 2018.

Please read the entire prospectus before applying online. The application deadline is January 22, 2018.

Participating artists will be required to volunteer during the sale, but we'll need help from other PHG members as well in the sale area and demonstrating fiber arts in the lobby. More information about volunteer opportunities will be available soon.

Feel free to pass this information along to others who might be interested, and let us know about any questions.
