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.

Upcoming Events

  • July 3, 2020
    • Tour de FleeceThe Tour de Fleece (TDF) is a virtual event that is hosted on Ravelry. This is a spin along that normally accompanies the Tour de France bike race. This year, the actual bike race has been postponed due to the COVID 19 crisis, but Tour de Fleece will go on during the original scheduled dates. TDF is not a challenge or competition, it is a spin-along with other spinners across Ravelry. Spinners can join one or many teams and post to each as their team captains permit. What is the goal? To spin and have fun! Spin every day during the event, rest on rest days, and challenge (or don’t!) yourself on the challenge days. It’s that easy. See “The Event” section below for details on the dates for the event.
