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. 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.

      Why do some of our projects exceed our expectations and others leave us flat? Of course amazing design skills account for the successes, but what about the others? And what happens when a garment looks incredible the first few times we wear it and then loses its appeal? It might be your choice of fiber or the way the yarn was spun and plied. We all know that wool felts, cotton is soft and silk is smooth and lustrous but that is only a small part of the picture. Some yarns drape beautifully, some stretch, some pill and some itch. Often we can adapt our design to compensate for a yarn’s shortcomings. Whether you are a spinner, knitter or weaver, knowing a little about a yarn’s properties will increase your chances of success.
