Albina Green Celebration
October 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Albina Green Celebration will feature an installation of upcycled wool blankets made by siblings Anne and Tom Greenwood at PGF.
Siblings Anne and Tom Greenwood are working as artists-in-residence with Portland Garment Factory to design and sew a limited edition of upcycled wool picnic blankets for the community event called the Albina Green Celebration. All 40 to 50 blankets will be installed on the grass of the small neighborhood greenspace on October 6th at 4pm before the event begins.
Tom and Anne have received a donation of colorful wool scraps from Pendleton Woolen Mills for the blanket materials. They will then work together with the Portland Garment Factory production manager to design and construct the blankets, create a label for each blanket, and sell the blankets at the event. This will be a one-time temporary installation event.
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In a little over two years, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized 3 festivals with over 170 events representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather 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. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
