Glitch embroidery and stitching

This is Nukeme. I met him at the Tokyo Maker Conference in June. He was wearing a cool MAKE shirt that had a messed up logo. The flaw is intentional. He calls it "glitch embroidery." He gave me one of the shirts and I love it.

Above, an example of Nukeme's glitch stitching. I emailed him last week to tell him I like his work. He sent me a couple of videos (below) that show how he does glitch embroidery and glitch stitching.

I like the sound the knitting machine makes when it runs over the metal pins.

  1. They were showing this at FAB9 yesterday in Yokohama. It’s an older Silver Reed knitting machine with a USB interface and custom software. The carriage requires a surprising amount of strength (probably needs to be tuned up).  Here is an old Japanese crowdfunding page (which was funded)
