If you have trouble keeping track of your sewing needles now, just think about how hard it would be in zero-g! NASA’s Karen Nyberg is representing the USA and the crafters right now in her six-month stint on the International Space Station, and she just might do some quilting while she’s there.

“I actually enjoy sewing and quilting and I am bringing some fabric with me and thread and I’m hoping to create something,” Nyberg said. “I don’t know yet what it will be but that’s part of creativity is that it comes with the feeling of the day so I have the supplies in my hands to create if I get the opportunity and the creative notion to do so.”

Check out the video above to hear more about Karen Nyberg’s approach to creativity in space, then head over to Space.com to learn more about her mission.
