Are you the aspiring creator of an original line of products? Or do you already have a small hand made enterprise that you'd like to take to the next level? If so, this Portland Textile Month Event is for you. Sign up for this free event HERE.

October 24, 6-8pm

Living Room Realty

1401 NE Alberta Street

Woonwinkel is thrilled to be co-sponsoring with Gabrielle Enfield of Living Room Realty this panel discussion on the ins and outs of scaling a product line from handcrafted to manufactured. The guests will include five textile industry experts who have lived the reality of creating a scalable textile business from scratch—from small batch to the big time. Topics will include product design, manufacturing, and business acumen. Although the focus is textiles, anyone wanting to understand how to get started in small scale manufacturing will find this discussion helpful.

The panelists are:

Susan Matteucci: Founding executive director of Southwest Creations Collaborative (SCC), a contract sewing manufacturer and women driven social enterprise based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Kerry Cotter: Founder and owner of Belmont Blankets, a textile company designing and producing products in Portland that work for the modern urban adventurer.

Rebecca Ward: Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder of Creative Capital Design, a local design consulting firm offering services in everything from product planning to execution.

Shay Carillo: Founder and owner of Non Perishable Goods, a lovely home wares line featuring made-in-Portland linens and textiles that speak to a cozy but elevated PNW interiors perspective.

Rob Jungmann: Founder and owner of Jungmaven, a made-in-the-USA line of sustainable and simple hemp clothing with an effortless, relaxed vibe. Also founder of HEMP 2020, a campaign to raise awareness around the positive environmental impacts of hemp farming.

This event is organized by Gabrielle Enfield of Living Room Realty & Woonwinkel
