SERVING THE FIBER ARTS COMMUNITY IN THE CAROLINAS!
We are in transition to a new location. Please be patient with us. The ZOOM meeting information will go out to everyone in February and will be on the website

Organized in the early 1970's as the Charlotte Handweavers Guild, our group has evolved into a regional membership of people interested in all aspects of the fiber arts: spinning, weaving, knitting, doll making, surface design, basketry, beadwork etc.
We meet at Congregate Noda, 3117 Whiting Ave., Charlotte, NC 28205.
We offer programs related to fiber arts each month, as well as workshops, several times each year, with regionally and nationally known artists. Visitors and guests are welcome.
The meeting dates are below:
*exception, 2nd Sunday due to Holidays, as indicated
We meet the 3rd Sunday of the month,
The mission of the Piedmont Fiber Guild is to promote appreciation of the Fiber Arts to all members and the community through education, events, support, and advocacy.
As dedicated fiber enthusiasts, we welcome everyone interested in creating with fiber. Our members include knitters, felters, weavers of all ilks, crocheters, lacemakers (tatted and bobbin), leather workers, spinners, quilters, sewers, shepherds, basketweavers, and dyers, as well as many others.
If you do it with a fibrous material, WE WELCOME YOU!
PFG is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and as such we support the promotion of the fiber arts to the public as well as donating goods and services to a number of causes throughout the year.
We make chemo caps for patients at a variety of cancer treatment programs throughout the Piedmont, including the Levine Center for Children, cancer treatment centers in Kings Mountain, Gastonia, Shelby and Charlotte.
Previous efforts have included making and providing layettes for newborns at Camp Lejeune, making warm accessories for the homeless in the Charlotte metro area, and supporting Quilts for Kids by donating finished quilts to be given to children and by auctioning larger quilts and donating the proceeds to support their ongoing operations.
Charitable efforts are directed by member's interests and suggestions, with a focus project selected annually.
