The article talks about putting a microchip into a quilt. Quilter Christine Hanner, a mechanical engineer and inventor of a rubber-coated thimble, studied radio-frequency identification (ID) and then searched for a microchip to fit quilters' special needs. Programmed with an identification number and encased in glass, a chip tolerates unlimited washings and dry cleanings. When you buy the chips, the ID number is stored in the Chipped Quilts database and can be traced back to you.
