Welcome to the third annual Portland Textile Month! We are honored to have you join us as we explore our 2020 theme of Repair & Reuse. Given all the challenges 2020 has brought, our programming emphasizes the collective mending of our social fabric, community-making projects, and highlighting the work of marginalized and or underrepresented community leaders and artists. In a moment where many people are isolated, we hope all those who interact with PTM art exhibits, virtual programming, or our distributed community projects feel a connection with our vibrant textile community. We hope all who participate feel a connection to the collective spirit and embedded beauty woven throughout all of this year's PTM programming. Thank you for your support, we couldn’t do it without you!
