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.
