Welcome to our Fiber Arts Guild in Charlottesville and Central Virginia!
Fall 2023 Update:
In-Person Meetings: The in-person monthly Craft-In/Spin-Ins are on first Sundays at Peace Lutheran Church, 1510 Broad Crossing Road, Charlottesville, VA 22911, 1:30 – 4:30 pm. This is a casual meeting with brief announcements at 2:15 and show and tell at 2:30. Non-members are welcome to come and meet guild members and see if the guild is a good fit for you. Any location or time changes will be noted in the newsletters and on the calendar.
- Attendees must follow the guidelines of our host regarding mask-wearing and use of facilities, regardless of individual Covid vaccination status.
- Currently masks are optional at PLC, and we ask that you respect the decision of your fellow members on mask-wearing.
Virtual Meetings: Virtual monthly meetings are for members only and will continue on third Sundays at 7:00 pm on Zoom (this a change from the previous time of 1 pm.), 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.
Study Groups: There are several special interest/study groups that meet each month, including weaving, spinning, knitting, embroidery, and fiber prep.
The entire list and complete information is here.
We will continue to have virtual meetings and classes on Zoom, 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 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.
