Solar Sewing Tour 2012

Craft & Design

Maker Faire veteran Paul Nosa is up to some tour planning for 2012. He’d like to travel around the nation to public art walks, embroidering the imaginations of passers by with his solar and bike powered sewing machine built onto an aluminum rover that also displays his creations. Paul’s seeking funding on Kickstarter to bring solar sewing to a town near you. In the video above, watch him sew the entire tour route!
