The goal of the first Textile Month is to bring together the Portland textile community for a month long series of learning, sharing, events/celebrations, and cross pollination among enthusiasts, artists, businesses and institutions. We hope to provide an open platform to engage and share ideas, history, knowledge, experiences, practices across cultures, viewpoints and generations. We draw our inspiration for PDX Textile Month from Textile Month in NYC and Design Week Portland.
What is it?
A series of open houses and events self hosted and open to anyone. Portland Textile Month may also include one central event/meetup where the textile community can gather together. Self organized and minimally produced for this first year to keep things simple.
Who can participate?
Anyone. Events will be posted/hosted on Eventbrite and can be posted free or paid by the organizers.
