    does the site have a map of members somewhere so we can tell if anyone lives near us? I don't have local quilters to quilt with and thought it might be fun to find some close by to maybe get with for a quilty weekend sometime.

    You can go to the member listing and see where people are from, IF they put it on their profile! It would be fun to see a map of all the members, but not all are active!

    each member can update their profile so that their location always shows below their avatar.

    If you look at the top of the page, on the second blue-fonted line, in between chat and My Bookmarks, click on My Profile, where you can easily find the spot to add your location.

    Where are you? I'm in Nebraska, and would welcome meeting new quilting friends.

    Sometimes you may be surprised by the close proximity of other quilters. Get to know the salespeople at your local fabric store. Sometimes you can make connections through the shops. Or take a class. Or look for a guild/church quilt group/etc. Or start a group...
    I was surprised by the number of quilters around me, once I made it known I was interested. :D

    The map idea isn't a bad idea. I would like to see dots of where the members live- like a dot graph- curious here. I always wonder if there are more quilters in a cold climate than a warm one.
    I don't have the data for message board users, but here is a map showing locations of the newsletter subscribers using IP geolocation.

    I run advertising mostly for the US so the stats are skewed on a worldwide scale.

    But inside the US, it pretty much mimics the general population density.

    That is a fantastic map! Thanks for the pictorial! I am a visual person, and this does give me a good idea of where we are, all over! Great! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    This is a real spatter gram! And we do have some concentrations!

    That would be great! I just went to member listing.. um 320 plus pages too bad you cant sort by state at the top which would narrow it down a bit.

    Well isn't that an interesting map!

    A couple of Canadian observations... There are no quilter subscriptions in Labrador... COLD place! Probably an indication of how hard it is to buy quilting supplies there!

    And Newfoundland (population .5 million) has just as many subscribers as Alberta that has 3.5million people and is one of the provinces where I buy most of my Canadian online fabrics! Interesting.

    Maybe who is on the board is more of an indication of whether we have have social networking in our area in which to share our quilting interests. I know I don't!

    I was a population geography junkie at university and I love these things... especially when you take into consideration the economic and social aspects along with it... maybe I can go back to university and write a thesis on the Quilting Board!!!

    And I didn't see me, because the administrator cut off the part of Newfoundland where Quilting Aggi, Marnie, Ranger and Mamagus live!!
