I was really excited to see this book come into the shop! It's a great resource for wet felters who want to up their felting game with felted garments. Jenny begins with the underlying principles of creating a nuno-felted garment from start to finish. This includes tools, workspace, fiber placement techniques, fulling and shaping, shrink rates and pattern template design. She continues with 7 guided projects to display those principles on a variety of garment shapes with LOADS of pictures to help with technique.
Each project works with new textural and dye effects as well. Armed with the underlying principles and the hands-on practice, the reader will be able to design and create unique felted garments! This book is accessible to felters with an introductory knowledge of nuno felting.
Cotton 8/2 Baby Soft
The best for towels
This is my go-to yarn for handwoven towels. Nice and soft, as advertised. Drapes nicely and hasn't broken or frayed while weaving.
Designing Woven Fabrics
Love This Book
This is an amazing book! I'm currently weaving the sample blanket from her book and loving every minute. At the end I will have 500 different small 2/2 twill based samples in one blanket. Every new treadling is an adventure. Highly recommend this book.
Double with a Twist
Double With A Twist
Very poorly edited. This book has several printing errors and confusing information. The drafts are mainly written for looms with more than 8 shafts. When questioning Marian Stubenitsky about the drafts she provides conflicting information. I would not recommend this book for inexperienced weavers and the weavers who can interpret what Stubenisky means are skilled enough to not need this book at all. The translation of the book from Dutch to English may be part of the problem but overall I think it’s poorly edited
Glimakra Reindeer Pelt Bench Cover for Small Bench
Reindeer Bench Cover
I am now ordering my 3rd Reindeer bench cover, so each of my 3 loom benches will have one. They are very comfortable, giving a bit of cushioning and warmth. They are easy to place and secure on the bench. Best thing for me--stops me from sliding around! Thanks Eugene Textile Center for offering this item.
I just ordered for the first time. Great customer service, helped me with parts I needed for my baby wolf. Of course I added more and loved every thing I got. Extremely happy with towel kit I ordered. Thank you so much!
Brassard 8/2 cotton
Your display on your website of these yarns is the BEST I'VE EVER SEEN! So easy to compare colors AND color names. Can't wait to get an order off to you.
Grateful for you!
From my first phone call to the latest (and there have been many), your helpful information and impeccable customer service have been incomparable. I chose an Ashford table loom (and two loom stands to make it travel-worthy) based on your expert recommendations, and I am delighted with these products, as well as with the yarns and weaving kits I chose to try. I'm excited to see you offer Zoom classes--the bright techno spot of this sad pandemic. Thank you for your wonderful selection of products and, most of all, for your creative, friendly and knowledgeable staff. You're my go-to place for anything related to spinning or weaving.
Used Country Spinner
This is probably an Indian Valley Spinner by Tom Ricci -- check if there is a Ricci cast into the large iron wheel. It's a powerhouse of a wheel -- great for rug yarn.
Suzie, Vickie and the folks at the Eugene Textile Center are amazing!
The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and well knowledge about anything and everything regarding textiles.
Lichen Dyeing Class with Cheshire
Lichen Dyeing Class
This class is a combination of hands-on-learning and a generous overview of lichen biology, identification, and technique to extract an amazing variety of colors from dried up bits. Very knowledgeable teacher, great handouts, and good classroom space. You go home with two scarves you've created yourself, color yarn samples of eight different lichen dyes, and lots of low cost ideas for dyeing at home using lichens.

I have purchased items online and also visited the store in person. They carry a great variety of equipment, tools and fibers, but what really sets them apart is fabulous customer service. The folks at Eugene Textile Center provide personalized service and are very knowledgeable. They are friendly and make shopping a pleasure. Eugene Textile Center has exceeded my expectations on several occasions and I highly recommend this company.
