September 19th is Worldwide Spin in Public Day. It is also International Talk Like A Pirate Day, so it sounds like a fantastic day to spin some yarrrn! GLASG will be hosting a virtual event on Zoom, as is our current normal. The Zoom meeting room will open up at 9:30 for anyone wanting to work out any technical issues and the event will start at 10:00, but this is informal, so pop in as you like.

Monthly guild meetings include a short informational program, study groups focused on spinning techniques, information on members’ projects, and informal spinning. We occasionally have guest vendors attend. This month's program will be presented by our special guest Maggie Casey. Topic: Yarn Characteristics
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.

Monthly guild meetings are held from 9am to 2pm on the 4th Saturday of each month except December. We meet at:

Meetings include a short informational program, study groups focused on spinning techniques, information on members’ projects, and informal spinning. We occasionally have guest vendors attend.

Workshops:

The guild periodically hosts workshops led by members or guest instructors. Guild members receive priority registration for workshops, with remaining open seats available to non-members.

Demonstrations:

As part of our mission to educate the Greater Los Angeles area residents on the art of spinning, we perform spinning demonstrations at public events throughout the year. Our demonstrations consist of members showing spinning on spindles or spinning wheels, and may include hands-on instruction. Many events are free to the public.

Fiber Events:

We are fortunate to have many fiber arts events in the Greater Los Angeles area throughout the year. GLASG often has a booth or demonstration onsite at these events, and if not, many of our members are in attendance.
