A few days ago we received a request from Paul Nosa to hang out here at the museum and "sew people's imagination." We said yes.
Watch this video for some AMAZING backwards writing with thread.
Paul Nosa: sewing people's imagination. "Unexpected visitor at the tea party in the sky."
Paul is a sewing artist from Tucson, Arizona. He draws people's imagination with a sewing machine powered by a solar panel and a bicycle electric generator. He's currently on a sewing tour across America facilitating people's creativity and showing them how to make their own alternative energy sources.
Paul Nosa: sewing your dreams five words [or less] at a time. "Swimming through the day."
If you can think of a scenario in five words or less, he will sew it on the spot using a bicycle-powered sewing machine. When he isn't using his bicycle, he has some photovoltaic panels to juice up a battery which he can connect to his sewing machine on his distinctively outer space looking "Solar Sewing Rover." You can purchase your custom patch from him and walk away with a one-of-a-kind piece of art and feel great knowing you're supporting this talented artist's trek across the continent. We also have a few cool limited edition Paul Nosa MF totes available in the MF Shop.
