Charlottesville Fiber Craft Meetup

The Whirling Whorls began as a group of handspinners from in and around Charlottesville, VA.  We recently expanded our meetups to include all sorts of portable fiber arts.  Our mission is to promote fiber-related activities, to provide an opportunity for fiber crafters to meet and spin, weave, knit or whatever, and enjoy informal fellowship together.  We also join in demonstrations at festivals to help preserve our fiber traditions.  

 

We meet the second Sunday of most months for an informal craft-in, or occasional field trip or dye day.  Please check the Sidebar or Calendar tab for each month's meeting topic and location.  We don't collect dues, or have formal programs, so just contact us to be added to the email list.


Bring your Spindle or Wheel, Loom, Needles, Hooks, CSM, Stitching, or other fiber craft and join us.  Beginner, Intermediate or Experienced. 
 
All level Crafters are welcome!
