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, Instagram, GLASG Spinners, and GLASG Spinners – Buy, Sell, Trade .

Workshops

Friday, May 17th, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm 

Spinning to Weave taught by Stephanie Flynn
Spinning a great weaving yarn is fun. Come and explore what characteristics come together to make a yarn good for weaving. We will discuss different yarns, where and when to use them for weaving. We will spin and ply small samples to weave on the Zoom Loom. This sweet little pin loom requires no previous weaving experience and will be provided for use during the class. See your handspun in a small woven sample that could be used as a coaster or sewn together with more squares for a larger project.

Price: $150 for guild members, $190 for non-members. Includes all material fees. 
Optional: Plus $15 for catered lunch.

Saturday, May 18th, 1:00 – 4:00pm

Exploring Color taught by Stephanie Flynn
Using primary colors of fiber we will blend a rainbow. We will talk about tints and shades and you will gain color confidence. Blending is a great way to get the color you want or refresh old roving for something fun and new to spin. Bring an inspiration picture or choose one during class to replicate and inspire you to move your spinning forward.

Price: $75 for guild members, $95 for non-members. Includes all material fees. 
Optional: Plus $15 for catered lunch.

Location: St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church
