Mackinley Motzer ~ Oregon Chapter
Welcome Mackinley! Tell us about your sewing business.
Specializing in custom sewing, alterations, and lessons, my mission as the Fibrarian is to take my clients’ dreams and make them “sew”. It is my intent to be the magician behind the machine; to take every detail into consideration and bring the idea to fruition.
In the world of sewing, my primary niche lies in the realm of interior design/home decor.
My other preferred sewing avenues include cosplay, product creation, alterations (both client and contractual work), and wholesale orders for local businesses.
What professional title do you use?
I refer to myself as the Fibrarian in an effort to encompass all aspects of my practice. I am a fiber artist, seamstress, teacher, and alterations specialist. The only title I do not enjoy would be "crafter".
What is something that you have always wanted to learn?
As it's been said many times before, "we don't know what we don't know". I am always excited at the opportunity to learn from those in my sewing community.
What is your favorite task to do in your business?
I love to take my clients' dreams and make them "sew". It is my pleasure to bring their dream to physical fruition and share the creative journey with them.
What goals do you have for your business (or yourself professionally) in the next 5 years?
It is my goal to move my home studio into a brick-and-mortar location in order to expand my offerings, especially in the realm of teaching.
What else should we know about you or your business?
I recently celebrated one year as an LLC in June! While I've been sewing for 15 years and a few of those years professionally, this last year was my first as a full-time Fibrarian.
