Help fund the next phase of Portland Textile Month’s Development
In less than two years, Portland Textile Month has turned from idea into a community movement highlighting the power of our mission foster collaboration & cross-pollination, cultural dialogue and exchange among the Portland Textile Community and beyond. We’ve organized two festivals showcasing the diversity of textile interests and practices through over 110 events. We’ve also developed two community-focused websites, and galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to come together around shared interests and knowledge sharing. PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.
Through your direct support we will continue to continue building Portland Textile Month and the TextileXchange as sustainable resources for the textile community for years to come.
Your contributions will be put directly towards operational expenses for the 2019 Portland Textile Month, seed capital for next year’s festival, and to transition volunteer workers to paid workers. If you feel a connection to the PTM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider directly supporting the next phase of our development as an organization.
Portland Textile Month and TextileXchange are part of a mission-driven social enterprise conceived of, incubated and funded within Textile Hive to foster community building, collaboration & cross-pollination, cultural dialogue and exchange among the Portland Textile Community and beyond. Portland Textile Month was brought to life through the contributions of a core group of committed volunteers.
