Take a look at this and scroll down to the Maryland section.
Woodburning Tools by Colwood: Carving Clubs

We are always carving at the shop on the weekends if we are not at shows. Everyone is always welcome. Not really a carving club but everyone helps everyone else. This time of year not as many carvers as spring means work around the house(unless they are over the shop hiding from thier wives).

The Carroll Carvers Club meets in Westminster, MD on the 4th Saturday of the month. We have recently started meeting at the Robert Moton Center, there. Here is a website for our club. CARROLLCARVERS Our annual show is coming up on April 16th. That would be a good opportunity to meet some the members and get acquainted with the club.

Alternatively, the Northern Virginia Carvers meet on Thursday nights in the Washington, DC suburbs. http://www.northernvirginiacarvers.org/main/nvcHome.php

These are the closest ones that I know of.
