Hello and welcome!
Firstly, thanks for dropping by my small business' website. This is the third (and hopefully last) website I've personally designed after I plunged into the world of chunky knitting.
Who am i?
My name is Sharnelle Ashleigh. I am the maker, customer service, marketing, accounting, packing and everything in-between! Can you believe I wasn't inventive enough to make up a cool brand name for chunky knitting? The easiest option was to name the business after me, myself and I.
Looking back at some of my favourite photos!
I'm sure many people out there have stumbled across opening a business because they love what they do and create. Like many other crafters, I find knitting very therapeutic, and it gives me the joy to see people enjoying the items I've made for them.
How it started
I created my business in February 2019 after learning how to knit at Christmas. Then I happened to come across the marvel of EXTREME chunky wool sometime in January, and I've been obsessed with it ever since! I began buying an array of different colours and started to make a range of products such as Blankets, Pet Beds and Baby Nests. After uploading pictures to Instagram to show off my new makes, I was amazed that people wanted to purchase them. In a nutshell, that's how my business was born. Pictured is my old workshop, where it all started!
Where are you from?
I currently live in the busy second city of Birmingham. I have lived here all my life and enjoy the diversity this great city offers. This year, I will be selling in person at John Lewis Solihull and it's fantastic to meet my customers face to face. Check out my Instagram page for inspiration, news and updates.
Lastly, I want to thank anyone that has purchased from me, shared my page or complimented my products. You all put an massive smile on my face every time, and I am grateful for your custom. People like you help small businesses thrive and grow.
