My friend, artist P.Nosa from Tucson, AZ, creates amazing free-motion embroidery with his solar-/pedal-powered sewing machine. Since drawing with a sewing machine is analogous to drawing without being able to pick up your pen, it requires more forethought than a regular drawing. This video captures his talent for maintaining a balance between intention and possibility.
P.Nosa will be at Maker Faire Bay Area next week. Find him there!
