    I'd also like to know what the word "weaver" is in Latin, and the phrase "Magic Weaver" or "Weaver of Magic."

    Thanks for your help.

    I'd say textor fascinationis based on

    textor,-oris m.
    for weaver since you've got lanarum textor in Plautus , Horace and others
    fascinatio,-onis f. for magic (see Plin. Nat. 28.35)

    Mind you , one could also use a present participle or a relative clause and come up with more or less the same meaning
