Welcome to Counter Culture. This new page is a place where we want the Spinning Weal community to come together so we can share and celebrate our experiences as lovers of craft. We want to showcase your creations, hear about what making means to you and inspire people as to what is possible. The Spinning Weal team will also be posting regularly with news, free patterns and ideas for what your next project might be. 

To launch Counter Culture we are making a short film and we want you to be involved. Just choose from one or both of the two options below. Click here to see what some of our customers have sent so far.  

The mask selfie 

We estimate that this year, our customers have made over 10,000 masks. We want to see how many mask selfies we can gather together in one place. 
Simply send a selfie of you in your mask to, so we can include it in the video. 

The 10 second showcase 

Lockdown has been a productive time for crafters, but not so good for showing off our creations and achievements. 
To show off something you have made in lock-down this year, send a quick video with you and your creation saying “my name is… and I made…” to, so we can include it in the video. 
We can't wait to see what you have been up to. 
Thank you very much to Jane Norton for for sharing this with us. Jane has raised over £1000 for the Prince's Trust this year making masks and bags. 
A very fetching one here from Tracey Poole - thank you Tracey :). 
As colourful as that mask is, Edwin Harris, the mesmerising tongue of Bernard steals the show.
