So I'm starting a business during a recession doing something everyone says isn't possible. I'm not sure if there are any professional handspinners in England or not, I may be about to become the first one in a lot of years. Of course in the past all spinning was done by hand but these days spinning is a hobby or at best a second income. Why am I doing this? I'm tired of being locked into a big slow grinding system, I'm tired of suffering as a result of other people's poor decisions, I'm tired of feeling as though my hands are tied. It's time to go self employed, be in charge of my own destiny then at least if I make a mistake I have only myself to blame.
