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.
