Led by owner Suzie Liles, the experienced instructors at Eugene Textile Center teach students basic felt-making techniques during two-hour introductory classes. Fledgling fiber artists learn how to handcraft ultrasoft merino fleece into pieces of felt, which can then be kept flat as trivets, sewn into pouches, or rolled into decorative taquitos. Each class includes the necessary materials to engineer samples in a rainbow of colors, and students bring home their project after the session.

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.
