Help Support Our
Community Building Work

In just over 3 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 exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
 
This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 50 events and directly sponsored over 20 programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community projects, podcasts, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM: New Traditions Festival has galvanized 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 paid administrative contributors, paid interns, and the receptiveness of the textile community.
 
We hope to continue building PTXM/TextileX website as a sustainable resource that will 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 directly supporting the next phase of our development. As a direct contributor, your funds will go toward operational expenses such as rent for our exhibit space for this year’s festival, seed capital for next year’s festival, and paying our talented contributors. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.

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.
