Charlottesville Handspinners

The Whirling Whorls are a group of handspinners from in and around Charlottesville, VA.  Our mission is to promote handspinning  and fiber-related activities, to provide an opportunity for spinners to meet and spin together.  We also join in demonstrations at festivals to help preserve our fiber traditions.  


We meet the second Sunday of each  month for an informal spin-in, informational program, or field trip.  Please check the Calendar tab for each month's meeting topic and location.


Bring your Drop Spindle or Wheel.  Beginner, Intermediate or Experienced. 
 
All level Spinners are welcome!
