American Patchwork: A Discussion of Quilting

October 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

An exploration of American quilting traditions, using the Andrea Aranow quilt collection as a visual aid and guide.

Join us as we explore the beautiful quilting traditions of America and their cultural implications. Quilts bridge opposing ideas: individualism and collectivism, form and function, past and future. Quilts are a space for both complexity and simplicity, and above all, a showcase of the industrious, creative, and persistent human spirit in the face of changing identity.

Support Our Community Programs

In just over 4 years, Portland TextileX Month (PTXM) 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 intergenerational exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.

This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 40 events and directly sponsored a multitude of FREE programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community events, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM Regeneration Festival has brought together makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing. PTXM would not have been possible without the dedication of event organizers, paid contributors, paid interns, amazing volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.

We hope to continue building PTXM and TextileX website 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 PTXM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider making a direct contribution programming. As a direct contributor, your funds will go directly toward programming, lean administrative expenses, and providing paid internships. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.
