Welcome to our Fiber Arts Guild in Charlottesville and Central Virginia!
April/May 2022 Update:
In-Person Meetings: We have returned to in-person monthly Craft-In/Spin-Ins on first Sundays at Peace Lutheran at our new time of 1:30 – 4:30 pm. Of course, depending on COVID numbers, in-person meetings may be moved outdoors when weather permits or canceled. All attendees must follow the guidelines of local authorities and our host facility regarding mask-wearing and use of facilities, regardless of vaccination status. Currently at PLC, masks are optional, and we will update our notes if this changes.
Check the COVID-19 Community Level per CDC guidelines:
Virtual Meetings: Since attendance at our virtual meetings has been so strong, and we have so many members from outside the Charlottesville area, we’re going to continue virtual meetings even after in-person craft-ins resume
For April 9th and May 14th, we will move the virtual guild meetings to Second Saturdays, then we will move them to third Sundays this Fall (that’s the old Albemarle Weavers’ day). NOTE: All the virtual programs will be recorded so you can watch the program later!
Weaver’s Meetings will continue on Zoom on fourth Thursday s (except November and December).
Spinner’s Meetings will continue on Zoom on Second Tuesday evenings.
Check the newsletter and the website calendar for 2022 programs and classes 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.
