Happy MacraMay!

The month of May is here and we couldn’t be happier! We’ve got so much to share with you, including workshops and new products! What can I say, it’s been an epic ride for Fiber Motel. I started Fiber Motel as a fun project to share my hobbies and spread my love for macramé.


So for those of you who don’t know me personally, my name is Janet and I’m the founder of Fiber Motel. I’m also the one making your macramés just in case you wanted to know.


When I first started making macramés, the response was quite mixed. Some were confused, some were intrigued, and some were super supportive. I left a comfortable and chaotic job at a digital agency so I can be fully commited to creating macramés and doing things I really enjoy. After a lot of support from my inner circle, I decided to create Fiber Motel. The response was overwhelmingly positive. I never thought in a million years that I could actually make money from my hobby and work from home (guess those Google Clickbaits are actually true!).


It hasn’t even been 3 months since Fiber Motel started, but we’ve expanded so quickly, receiving new offers for exciting projects everyday. As much as I wish I could say yes to all of them, for now I can’t. My favorite life motto in life is ‘Go Big or Go Home’ – and I’m 100% sure if you’re close to me you’ve heard me say this a million times. When doing a project, I apply the same motto – hence, I give 100% in each project I do for Fiber Motel from the big picture to the details. That’s why I can only take a limited number of projects at a time, so I can be 100% in each and everyone of them. 

This month has been super overwhelming for me, Fiber Motel is doing collaborations, workshops and we’ve found a stockist for our retail products. It’s an exciting ride yet also very, very exhausting if you can imagine.

So I’d like to personally thank you for all your support, and I will try my best in making sure that Fiber Motel delivers happiness in each of our products! Happy MacraMay!
