    Incredible Technology!!! I'm AMAZED!

    Total disclaimer I'm in no way affiliated with this company but I'm so excited to share this link with you....

    Well I just saw video and I'm sending this to all my quilting buddies!!!! I cannot believe how wonderful this will be to add to our quilts AND I hate to have my picture taken but for family quilts how cool will this be? ..... I visited their website after I viewed the video thinking "Yeah Right how much will that little patch cost?" The stkr (sticker) is only $2.99!!! Incredible!!!!

    I was at my quilt guild meeting last night and one of the members showed a family heirloom signature quilt that was made as close as they could figure in the late 1930's and it had at least couple of hundred or more signatures....though the family knew some of the names they didn't know the whole story ..... Now technology has caught up that the detailed messages can be left on these QR code stickers and put next to the label telling the story of the quilt!!!! WOWZERS!!!!

    That is really something. For old people like me that is just hard to understand completely but can see how nice it would be also.

    Wow, talk about high tech. At least for this grandma. But, such a super cool idea & it even sounds easy enough for a non-techie like me to do. Thanks for sharing.

    That's amazing! What a great way to document your quilts. I like the idea of telling the story of why you made it.

    What will happen to that info when you no longer have this equipment (technology changes)? I spent a lot of money having old 8mm movies and slides my family and travels put on VCR's. Now I have to change them to disc because the VCR players are not readily available for the young persons interested.

    I saw this demonstrated at a recent quilt show, and it does sound great. However, I agree with MissPriss - technology comes and goes, and whatever the reader is for this will eventually disappear or have to be upgraded like records to 8-track tapes, to CDs to whatever is coming next. I'd still want a nice, informative label on a quilt, and I'm pretty vigilant in doing that on mine. I think any quilt without a label with the year and the maker is really sad.

    Oh I agree with MissPriss and LynnVT that indeed we've witnessed changes in technology. 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.
