I draw with a sewing machine to make custom patches inspired by people's imagination. 'Sewn Scenarios' is a collection of 181 patches and the stories behind why they were made. Each design I sew is one-of-a-kind; I do not use a computer, template, or sketch on the fabric.

Sewn Scenarios

I use a portable sewing table powered by a solar panel and a bicycle that generates electricity to sew anywhere at anytime. For the last ten years I have annually ventured on what I call "sewing tours" across the United States. My mission: to stimulate people's creativity and to demonstrate alternative energy sources.  
Since I started in 2004, I've sewn thousands of patches. People have asked me to sew scenarios of their dreams, ‘Defying gravity,’ and becoming one with their cello. I've sewn a memento for a marriage based on a $100 bill. Some patches have been helpful signs: to warn against the danger of 'Running with scissors' and a patch to let paramedics know 'Do not resuscitate me.' I made a train emerging from a man's head to illustrate 'Train of thought,' and multiple hands grasping the deck of a boat for 'All hands on deck.' Most of my interpretations are humorous, but because I encourage people to concentrate their ideas, I've been compared to a therapist. 'Sewn Scenarios' is a collaborative work representing the imagination of the nation.
