The historic Octagon house of Carolina Village, Richmond, Rhode Island, now shelters the Carolina Fiber and Fiction Center.

Inside,  Jan Doyle and  Richard Muto teach spinning, weaving, and knitting!

Jan Doyle and Master Weaver Certificate Candidate Anna Hallstrom.

Richard Muto's most entertaining yarn-spinning class meets on Saturday mornings.
Jan's amazing woven robes adorn the walls of Octagon House.

  1. Love the brackets on the octagon house
    Hope to see it in person someday.

    Ive visited dozens and researched them for 30 yrs.

    I just compiled all 900 19th century octagon houses Ive located into a book.(both gone and extant)

    View more info on my website.

    Good luck with your knitting business.
