About

A chronic illness warrior who fell in love with fibre and now has a big dream.

Hi, my name is Aimee-Rose but I'm most commonly referred to as Tinks!
I started working with yarn at the age of 17 after a fall down the stairs that kick started chronic illnesses called: Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndome, Chronic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
You'd often see me in a sling but still insisting on crocheting.
I kept improving my crochet skills over the next few years; but found that I needed more of a challenge, so came the knitting, then dying and then spinning in quick succession!
Although my illnesses cause me severe pain and blackouts, I've set myself a goal to get stronger and one day open a full on walls and window shop; but to do this I need to start building up my online business. Starting with Etsy, I'm going to begin listing what I spin and dye and sew for myself, if I don't use it straight away anyone can buy it!
Hopefully I'll start to build up a small capital to buy some materials to create goods in a bulk for online and then it's on to building capital for an actual store!
I'd love to make this dream a reality, I know I'll never be able to physically sit in an office again or work in a more traditional retail setting like I once did; but running my own business where I can dress comfortably, use my wheelchair or crutches and of course take advantage of the comfy sofas I intended to have; well that is doable.
