QR Codes in New Leaf

I was woefully ignorant where the subject of QR Codes was concerned when I began to play the most recent version of Animal Crossing 'New Leaf' on the 3DS.  After having played Animal Crossing for more than a decade, I instinctively knew how to succeed in most areas of the game for the most part but when Sable introduced me to her new, monstrous sewing machine I was as much at a loss as she.
