$25 for Intro to Knitting Class and Supplies ($50 Value)

Store owner and veteran knitter Suzie Liles imparts knitting basics during daytime and BYOB evening classes, furnishing all necessary materials and enabling students to take home their own knit scarf. Students are taught an easy cast-on and knit stitch, with purling and binding covered depending on class progress.

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, a dye kitchen, and an undressed snowman for a model.

The class was great and you come out of it with an actual piece. Great instruction and small class size made sure everyone got what they needed.
