1.9 million African American Quilters

According to the Quilting in American study, there are 27.7 million quilters in the United States. The quilters spent more than $3.3 BILLION on quilting expenditures. The industry survey has been taken once every three years since 1994. The 2006 survey, according to one of the researchers I corresponded with, indicated that 7.1% of Quilting Households are African American. I've been tracking these figures since 1997. In the US today, that translates into an estimated 1.9 million Black Quilters. Wow!
