About GLASG

The Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild is a group of hand-spinning enthusiasts in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas and beyond. Our members incorporate hand-spinning in a wide variety of fiber arts including knitting, weaving, rug-making, felting, crochet and many others.

All skill levels are welcome at our meetings, from master to novice. If you’re curious (even if you’ve never spun before) come to a meeting and we’ll help you access resources for equipment and instruction. All are welcome, you don’t need to be a guild member to attend. Monthly guild meetings include a short informational program, exchange of expertise, information on members’ projects, and informal spinning. Periodically, the Guild sponsors half-day and multi-day workshops conducted by members and guest instructors.

Please browse our site, and drop us an email if you’re interested in becoming a member of our Guild. Information on our activities is also available on the Guild’s Ravelry GroupFaceBook, GLASG SpinnersGLASG Spinners – Buy, Sell, Trade and Yahoo Group.
