Paul Nosa and his solar powered sewing machine

I met Paul Nosa in Dolores Park late last summer. He had set up his solar powered sewing machine and was embroidering commissioned pieces on scraps of fabric. Most of his pieces were based on five word phrases suggested by customers, so I handed him a shirt and asked him to do custom piece with “yo-yos and bikes and shit”. I shot the above video while he was working on my shirt, but hadn’t gotten around to editing it until flying back from Saint Louis this weekend. I hope you like it.

By the way, the shirt turned out AWESOME:
