Welcome to the new Fiber Arts Guild in Charlottesville and Central Virginia!
COVID-19: As of July 25, 2020, we will continue to hold guild events online through the end of 2020, and we are working to expand our online programs and presentations in the coming months.
Members will receive an invite and instructions for all meetings and programs. If you see something on the calendar and do not receive an invite, please email us at email@example.com. Here’s a cheat sheet we’ve put together with instructions on Using Zoom.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
