Welcome to the TextileX resource guide—a growing effort created to map out and connect the vibrant textile community and resources in the Portland metro area and beyond. The foundation of this guide was built from the diversity of organizations that participate in the Portland TextileX Month festival every October.

Development of and funding for this guide have been provided by Textile Hive with additional funding from a RACC catalyst grant in 2019.

We encourage you to contribute additional resources through this form and consider becoming a member of TextileX to help further develop this resource guide as well as Portland TextileX Month.


Lane Hunter

Lane Hunter, a Portland native, stumbled into a college folk dance audition and ended up dancing across the globe, earning a BFA in Dance from Brigham Young University. He fell head first into choreography and his work has been seen as far away as Beijing, China. Lane tripped into Kim Robard’s Dance in Colorado, slipped into Renaissance Cruises, and toppled into music videos for Blues Travelers and Michael Jackson. He tumbled across the stage and films of BodyVox, creating numerous original works before leaping into his own where he continues to demonstrate his innate ability to land firmly on his feet.
