A wizard with a machine from the plains who can tell your fortune just as fast as she can design and alter your most precious clothes or props.


Michele Nordahl

What did you do before becoming a tailor?

I have been gradually turning all my hobbies into jobs or side jobs, whether intentionally or by accident. As far as a full time prospect, graphic design and sewing were neck and neck for a few years; I designed the layout for a 32-page trade magazine for a year, as well as ghostwriting, editing, and designing nonfiction books.

On the other hand, I managed at a fabric store, designed clothes to sell in boutiques, and was starting to learn sewing machine maintenance from a repairman.

Ultimately, sewing or altering clothes and props for photo shoots, events, and displays became my focus, as I enjoy solving all the puzzles that come from making unusual items or altering garments on the fly.


What are your interests outside of work?

I collect hobbies and interests, and most creative or esoteric things attract my attention. I write urban fantasy novels, study tarot and mythology, and run a meetup group called the Weirdery.
