More Pattern More Better
October 5-October 19
A viewing of Charlotte Flory’s complex handmade pieces of art and the digitally-printed fabric and garments created from them.
Charlotte Flory and Shipwreck of Portland invite you to view Charlotte’s complex handmade pieces of art and the digitally-printed fabric and garments created from them. “More Pattern More Better” asks you to exchange your ideas with each other: Can art and design be equal? How does art inspire design? What separates or bonds them to each other, or is even important to unearth an agreed upon truth?
Join us at “Shipwreck,” where Charlotte’s art and design will commune alongside the colorful mix of vintage and modern artisanal pieces curated by Marcy Bruce, owner of Shipwreck. The main shop window will showcase an installation of garments made with Charlotte’s digitally-printed fabric inspired by the art hanging on the wall.
Charlotte exuberantly embraces the overt relationship of pattern design in her art, and art in her textile designs. One day she hopes to build an entire world covered in her colorful designs!
Dates of show: October 5th-19th
Store Hours: Sun-Wed 11-5/ Thur-Sat 11-7

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.
