Robert Kaufman Fabrics was kind to give us some fabric for our upcoming book. Fortunately, for some lucky random winner, we're willing to share! It's a charm roll from the Color Composition/Primary Colorstory. We ask that you answer just a few questions and comment on your profile/preferences as a quilter.
Demographics of the Dedicated Quilter indicate she is female; about 64; is well-educated (79% attended college); has a household income in excess of $100,000; and has been quilting an average of 20.3 years. Among Dedicated Quilters, 81% are traditionalists, while 38% embrace art quilting, and 35% enjoy modern quilting styles. Some enjoy multiple types of quilting.
The Dedicated Quilter owns, on average, almost $13,000 worth of tools and supplies and has a stash of fabric worth nearly $6,000, which the majority (88%) store in a studio or room dedicated solely to sewing and quilting activities.
And quilters are also tech-savvy, with 87% owning a tablet or eBook reader today. The percentage of quilters who access the Internet daily has grown to 86%, up from 73% four years ago. The data indicates that quilters spend 3.5 hours per week watching quilting-related online broadcasting to learn new tips and techniques, get inspiration, purchase fabric, tools, and supplies, and to search for free patterns.
I sew mostly (using a purchased pattern, a book, a magazine article, a free pattern, totally improvisational ...or equally from all).
I spend most of my quilting funds (at a quilt shop, on line, quilt shows, Facebook Group, all).
I'm (30 something or less, I'm older, I still have a land line).
Any comments that dispute the above study?
Thanks so much. We'll share the results and the winner next week! 'Till Tuesday...
