    sounds like a great little tool. May have to get this. For $2.99 yeah I think I will.

    How cool is this! I think I'll check into it - love the idea of putting a message on there.

    Definitely something I will be using from this point forward!!! Even though I use embroidered labels for all my quilts, this could contain so much more information!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Interesting idea! I may research it further before using, but I did bookmark the video. Thanks!

Where I think this technology is great is the amount of information this will allow us to attach to a quilt that a label cannot encompass. Like Lynn every quilt I make has a label attached but I'm limited to the amount of information, unless I want a label as big as the quilt attached to the back. :0)

    What this little tag along with a label will allow is perhaps a video, a document telling hmm let's say the fabric line, the reason I used a particular print, "All flannel is from Grandpa's shirts", then go on telling Grandpa's biography.....leaving information that again, might be lost to future owners of the quilt.

    I don't know that every quilt will have one of these QR tags but for me, for now, I think that this is a fantastic resource to attach to certain quilts that I want to leave a bit more information than I normally attach to the label. Ask Dawn 'SewnSewer2' who makes incredible embroidered labels for all my quilts...my labels are usually huge. So along with a label I'm excited to have the option to add more information should I choose.

    Is the technology going to change? Without a doubt, but I think for $2.99 this little treasure will be on every family quilt next to one of Sewnsewer2 embroidered labels.

    Then I'll trust that should this stkr tag become obsolete there will be technology to retrieve the information that without the stkr tag there would be no information to retrieve at all....As many quilts today have lost their history through time.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Well said. As technology advances, there are always those who will develop a way maintain /transfer the information. What I am really impressed with is the recorded voice option. We have all lost loved ones & if we happen upon a recording of their voices (answering machine message or response on a video in which they speak) it sends you back to their essence - just like seeing their handwriting. It's a tangible witness of their presence in our lives.
