Central Virginia Fiberarts Guild

We are pleased to announce the formation of Central Virginia Fiberarts Guild in January 2018, and we'll be open for new memberships around February 1st.

Please check the CVFG website for updates at cvfg.org, or feel free to email us for info on membership and meetings at info@cvfg.org!

The new guild is being formed by members of Albemarle Handweavers Guild, Charlottesville Fiber Arts Guild, and Whirling Whorls Fiber Arts to provide a single guild with a focus on all fiber arts disciplines and artists/crafters, at whatever skill level – from beginners to professionals.

We welcome you to become a member! Whether you are a weaver, spinner, knitter/crocheter, dyer, felter, quilter, basket maker, sock machine knitter, braider, beader, or embroiderer, please join us for informal craft-ins, educational programs, dye days, workshops, and special events.

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!
