Welcome to the new Fiber Arts Guild in Charlottesville and Central Virginia!
COVID-19: As of March 30, 2020, in light of Governor Northam’s Stay at Home Order #55, effective through June 10, 2020, we have canceled our April 5th monthly Craft-In and Study Groups, as well as the May 3rd Craft-In and Study Group, and we will postpone the May 9th mini-doll making class.
Since the Stay at Home Order continues into June, we will announce an alternate means to conduct the annual meeting and elections – most likely a video call and online voting.
Of course, our greatest hope is that all our members and their family and friends will stay safe and well! We will continue to monitor the local, state and federal recommendations for groups and gatherings, and the decisions made by our host facility.
If you have any questions, or if you have an event listed on our site that is canceled or postponed, please email to let us know at email@example.com.
Stay home with your favorite fiber art to work on, and stay healthy!
The new guild 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 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.
