WELCOME TO GLASG

ex

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 Group, FaceBook, GLASG Spinners, GLASG Spinners - Buy, Sell, Trade and Yahoo Group.

April 22, 2017

This program will focus on tape or box looms and examine the importance of tape through 18th century eyes. This will also be about spinning for this type of loom and a demonstration of warping and weaving for tape. And for those who wish to step back in time, members can try their hand at using this relic of the past .

Judy has been performing a one-woman show "Abigail Adams" for 40 years now and came to spinning and weaving through an in-depth study of Colonial and Revolutionary America through her depiction of Abigail Adams.
