Hello NEwhorizons123,  

There are 21.3 million active quilters in the U.S. and an estimated 30
million quilters worldwide.

Sources of information:

According to the 2003 Quilting In American survey there are now 21.3
million active quilters nationally.

?That was an increase from 19 million quilters in 2000 and 15 million
three years earlier. The 2003 survey results showed that quilters
spend $2.27 billion a year on their passion.?

?The International Quilt Market & Festival, a division of Quilts Inc.
and Quilter?s Newsletter Magazine, commissioned the study.

NFO Research Inc. and Abacus Custom Research Inc. conducted the survey.

The survey also showed that 25 percent of the total are ?dedicated
quilters?, those spending more than $500 annually on quilting, Quilts
Inc. President Karey Bresenhan said in a report to retailers.?

The Dallas Morning News:  July 7, 2005

According to Quilters News Network, QNN there are an estimated 30
million quilters worldwide..

?Quilters News Network, QNN, is the first fully scheduled affinity
market broadcast network delivered on the Internet twenty four hours a
day, seven days a week. QNN addresses the quilting industry?s need for
project-based media by providing pure interest programming to the more
than 30 million quilters around the globe ? a group that serves as the
foundation of a $3 billion industry. One of the unique features of the
network is that programming that has never been available, and would
never be available via broadcast or even cable because of its lack of
general interest, is now available to people who enjoy the craft. The
intense delivery of programming 24/7 offers both viewers and
advertisers the opportunity to get exactly what they seek ? viewers
get endless ideas and education and advertisers get an extremely
targeted demographic.?
