Colorful Histories & Woven Landscapes Open House
October 11-October 31
Woonwinkel hosts three local textile artists united by themes of culture, memory, and family in a diversity of styles.
Woonwinkel is hosting a special textile installation called Colorful Histories & Woven Landscapes through the month of October. This installation celebrates three textile artists united by themes of culture, memory, and family—Dianee Da’lama, Audrey Ducas, and Alli Stocco.
Dianee Da’lama is a quilt and textile artist using color and graphic storytelling to reimagine her experiences living and creating as a Cuban-American woman. Glimpses of magical beings, brave heroes, and psychedelic scenery are all animated through her artistry.
Audrey Ducas is a classically trained French-American fiber artist having studied in the tapestry capital of France. In her ambition to honor the traditions of her predecessors, Audrey creates delicate, detailed, pastel woven textile landscapes that explore both her own ancestry and the history of the medium.
Alli Stocco is the creator of the semi-annual zine Of Things Real and Imagined—a lush, colorful, and richly executed publication that Woonwinkel is hosting a special textile installation called Colorful Histories & Woven Landscapes through the month of October. This installation celebrates three textile artists united by themes of culture, memory, and family—Dianee Da’lama, Audrey Ducas, and Alli Stocco.
Meet the artists at our Colorful Histories & Woven Landscapes open house party on October 11th from 6-8pm. Or come see the installation anytime during our open hours from October 1st to the 31st.
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.
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.
