|A "Smart Quilt"|
On becoming "Tech-savvy"... I have a new SMART phone - Yeah! I'm pretty sure it's smarter than I am, but my kids are thrilled they can now send me a text and I can respond without taking half an hour to spell "Hi."
And now, when I'm making more 2D barcode Techno-TAG scannable quilts, I don't have to wait until my husband gets back from out of town or call the neighbor to come scan my quilt to see if it works. I even downloaded the free Tag app on my phone all by myself! And, when my friend Debbie, her daughter and I teach this class at HMQS next week, rather than having to flag down some unsuspecting passer-by with a smart phone to step into our class, I'll be able to demonstrate the technique myself! Nice.
Want to try it? If you have a smart device (phone, Ipad, etc.),
1) Download the FREE APP from Microsoft here: http://gettag.mobi.
2) Hit the Scan button and scan the picture of the quilt.
Did it work? Or try scanning the little tag codes in this post. Your phone will buzz, and the scan will send you to whatever URL I've assigned it to today (blog page, website, pinterest, craftsy store, facebook, free pattern, etc). The black and white code below will take you to a secret picture...
Take our class at HMQS, or download a pattern for the color tag at my Craftsy Pattern Store HERE. By the way, my new phone number is 435-503-7412.
