Mike Newman contacted me awhile back to put a cool product on my blog. He sent one for me and one for one of my readers!
There is a video here on youtube that shows you how it works. You can also go to the website for StoryPatches to learn more about the product.
Basically a StoryPatch enables quilters to connect a personalized audio or video message directly to their quilt. I think it is pretty exciting that I can talk about the fabrics I put in a quilt--for example that some of the fabrics in a certain quilt came from my dad's shirts or about what is going on in my life or the life of the recipient at the time I made the quilt! I blog this info, but love the idea of someone being able to access it directly from the quilt!
Mike assured me that "each patch has a unique code that works with our free smartphone app and website, and could not be easier to use – even for people who don’t like new technology!" Looking at the video I can see I can manage it, and I sure you could too.
So giveaway time! If you want a chance at having a free sample StoryPatch, leave me a comment on the blog and tell me which quilt you might want to try it out on and what info you might include. I will draw a random number a week from today (so Friday June 12th) and announce the winner! Good luck!
