Welcome to our Fiber Arts Guild in Charlottesville and Central Virginia!
January/February 2023 Update:
In-Person Meetings: We have returned to in-person monthly Craft-In/Spin-Ins on first Sundays at Peace Lutheran, 1:30 – 4:30 pm, September – June (except when our October date falls on a Fall Fiber Festival day).
- In-person meetings may be moved outdoors or canceled depending on COVID numbers.
- If meeting indoors, all attendees must follow the guidelines of our host regarding mask-wearing and use of facilities, regardless of individual vaccination status.
- We will continue to have virtual monthly meetings on Zoom in 2023, along with in-person craft-ins and classes, both for those from out of the Charlottesville area and those who don’t wish to attend in person.
Check the COVID-19 Community Level per CDC guidelines:
Virtual Meetings: Virtual monthly meetings will continue on third Sundays at 1:00 pm on Zoom, usually with a program, demo, or virtual field trip. NOTE: Virtual programs will usually be recorded so you can watch the program later! Look for recordings on the Guild Meeting Recordings page.
Spinner’s Meetings will continue on Zoom on Second Tuesday evenings.
Weaver’s Meetings will continue on Zoom on fourth Thursday evenings (except July, August, and holidays).
Check the newsletter and the website calendar for all programs, classes, and outreach activities as they are confirmed.
CVFG was formed in early 2018 by members of Albemarle Handweavers Guild, Charlottesville Fiber Arts Guild, and Whirling Whorls Fiber Arts to provide a single guild serving all of Central Virginia with a focus on all fiber arts disciplines and artists/crafters, at whatever skill level – from beginners to professionals.
We invite 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.
Member benefits include: members receive the monthly newsletter, guild emails, and program notices, and have access to the membership list; members may register for guild workshops and programs at the member-rate; and members are eligible to register early for the MAFA Conference at the member rate.
We are a 501.c.3 organization, and your donations to the guild may be tax-deductible.
