Can you sell artisan textiles with meaning?

October 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

An informal talk about what it means to buy, collect, and sell unique vintage textiles.

Textiles are often personal objects, hand-made art. The market is notoriously impersonal, an “invisible hand,” yet those of us who sell textiles feel a responsibility to the makers and the artists; we’ve thought deeply about what it means to represent and promote them. Join us, the middlemen, as we talk a little about the meaning of the objects we live with and how commerce impacts it.

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.
