About the Guild

Our new guild was formed by members of Albemarle Handweavers Guild, Charlottesville Fiber Arts Guild, and Whirling Whorls Fiber Arts to provide a single guild serving Central Virginia, with a focus on all fiber arts and artists, at whatever skill level – from beginners to professionals.

Coming Soon – a bit more history here, including our objectives for activities and outreach.

2020-2022 Committee Members Needed

Here are the positions we need to fill:

Communications – Social Media: Join the committee to help publicize guild events, programs, and workshops, as well as events submitted to us from other Virginia guilds. Familiarity with Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter a plus. Communications – PR & Graphics: We’d love someone with graphics and/or computer skills to help us publicize guild events by helping to produce and distribute the flyers created for our guild programs and workshops. Flyers are used on our website, on social media, and IRL at shops and events.

Study Group Leader:
If you have a spinning, weaving, knitting or other topic or question, we welcome members starting new study groups and we’ll help publicize it. You don’t have to be an expert! If you have questions about a fiber art or particular technique, others may also. It just takes one person to coordinate a group.
