We are a small but growing group of jigsaw puzzle fans here in the Portland area, and like most of you, none of us really have any interest in doing the same puzzle a second time. (And it always seems like such a shame to sell a perfectly good puzzle at a garage sale for twenty-five cents!)
The group started in 2006 with the idea that it would be great to have a place to trade our completed puzzles with our friends for ones we haven’t done yet. Thus,the Portland Puzzle Exchange was born! It has been volunteer-run ever since by a succession of puzzle lovers who have stepped in as previous coordinators have passed away or moved.
We get together twice a month, alternating between two locations:
- Tualatin – Our original location. Meets at the Winona Grange Hall in Tualatin (the Tualatin schedule rotates among third Sundays, third Mondays, and third Fridays to accommodate the most people — see When and Where page for schedule.)
- NE Portland – Our newest location. Meets at the Matt Dishman Community Center in NE Portland on the first Saturday of the month from 11 am – 1 pm. (with the exception of September which gets bumped to the second Saturday — see When and Where page for schedule)
If you would like to be added to our mailing list to be notified about meeting dates and other news, please drop us a note.

The more folks we add, the more diverse the range of puzzles we’ll all have to work our way through!
