“I draw with a sewing machine without a computer or template. I’ve made a portable sewing table powered by a solar panel or a bicycle electric generator.

Paul Nosa - Treasure Island - machine embroidery

“I ask people to imagine a scenario; to say it in 5-words-or-less, and I sew a patch for them on the spot. People can ride the bicycle and generate the electricity for their own patch.

Not only does Paul innovate with the pedal powered sewing machine, the speed and response to people’s ideas is unlike anything I’ve seen thus far. It’s freestyle hip-hop with a needle and thread. It’s hella cool.
