We're bringing the new NVHG website on line. We should be back up shortly with a beautiful and informative new website. Stay tuned. (10/22/12)
The Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild (NVHG) was formed in 1972 to promote craftsmanship and to give members an opportunity to sell their work to the public. Anyone may join but to participate in our shows, your work must be juried by our Standards Committee.
At our monthly meetings, we provide a forum where artisans and artists exchange ideas and experiences. Attendance is optional, but the turnout is enthusiastic. In addition to networking with your fellow professionals, you'll receive valuable tips on upcoming shows as well as uninhibited critiques of recent shows.
We meet at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Arlington Boulevard (Route 50) and Woodlawn Avenue, Falls Church on the second Monday of each month. Snacks & networking begin at 7:15 p.m. followed by a short business meeting at 7:45. Meetings are open to the public.
Our monthly newsletter keeps you informed about shows to enter, business and informational articles, as well as Guild activities. As a member, you'll also receive a handbook which includes a membership list, by-laws, and show rules. Yes, we have rules. That's why our shows look so great and have attracted so many dedicated customers!
NVHG members are more than fine handcrafters. We are active in the Northern Virginia communities through our many activities:
Whenever you're shopping for arts and crafts, look for the NVHG juried-member icon.
