Led by owner Suzie Liles, the experienced instructors at Eugene Textile Center teach students basic stitchery during two-hour introduction to knitting classes. Fledgling fiber artists learn how to cast on, create knit and purl stitches, and train playful cats to wind their yarn as purling professors deliver hands-on instruction and demonstrate proper techniques. Evening classes are BYOB, so knitters can sip self-procured libations as they stitch. Each class includes the necessary knitting materials to handcraft knit samples that students can bring home with them after the session or wrap around a cold snowman prone to laryngitis.

About Eugene Textile Center
Veteran artisan Suzie Liles had already been a reputable figure in the fiber arts community for nearly 20 years—teaching, chairing conferences, and being active in several design and weaving guilds—when in March 2008 she and a partner decided to open Eugene Textile Center. An MFA in Fibers from the University of Oregon, Suzie channels her training, experience, and passion for all things woolly into making the center a craftsperson's paradise of name-brand supplies and instructional workshops in various forms of textile conjuring. Local hobbyists and professional fiber artists alike are able to rent spinning wheels and other equipment on a weekly or monthly basis. Suzie also welcomes visitors to weaving and surface-design studios, which are equipped with looms and a dye kitchen.
