Block Printing and Embroidery Workshop with Studio Tour
October 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Choose one of our bamboo printing blocks to customize a cotton guest towel and learn 6 embroidery stitches to embellish your print.
This event will have two sessions: 10-12:30 and 2-4:30 that you can sign-up for separately.
Join us in our print studio for the first half of the workshop! You will choose from our selection of bamboo printing blocks and print your design on a guest towel. Then we will move to our comfortable barn studio for embroidery instruction. Make a sampler of 6 different embroidery stitches and learn how to embellish your guest towel! You will leave with your beautiful guest towel, a stitch guide, a stitch sampler, an embroidery hoop, and a printing block. Bring a bag lunch. Coffee and other drinks will be provided.
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 only 15 months, 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 two festivals with over 120 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.
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 a direct contributor, your funds will go toward directly towards operational expenses.
