I downloaded the Quilt Store Finder app to my smartphone and have already used it! I love it! We are going on a 6 wk RV trip in 2 weeks and I can't wait to find the quilt shops where we'll be. I'm glad to see an app for smart phones instead of the usual I-Phone app first!!!!!

please also include the store/person's website as well as phone (and thanks for going with Android simultaneous with Iphone!) Especially since we're accessing it on our phone and can go directly there.

We're planning a trip and it is nice to have the location of good quilt shops, so I don't have to look them up when we get there.  I can plan my route in advance and minimize the stress for my husband:)

I just found the app and was so excited. But my iphone is a 3g and it has to be at least a 4.2.  Guess I'll have to upgrade my phone. After all quilting IS more important.

What a great app!  So glad it was mentioned on quiltbiz!  I do see a couple of Canadian stores on it so hope that increases.

Very cool.  Was just talking about a Chicago to Phoenix quilt shop hop next summer.  This will come in so handy!  Yes, I'm going to need to take the big van on this trip :-)

I would also like to encourage this type of app for locating shops when traveling outside of the country.  Wouldn't that be great!!--i,e.  Europe, The Carribean,---Hurrah!

I really use this app, but would like to see a note of some kind regarding sites that are not really shops but home quilt services. This has been a little deceiving.

Agree w person about clarifying stores vs. folks who will quilt your quilt for you.  Not sure if there is a way for your team to get lists from magazines of stores.  Shop Hop lists are pretty current and some of the stores listed are out of business.

This is a great app.  Somehow you need to remove the shops that are closed.  Also it would be nice to have an option to not include 'shops' that are internet only.  Southern NH has many that are not shops we can visit.

This app is awful.  Be prepared to weed through a ton of junk and do your own research to find a few quilt shops out of the gillions of who-knows-whats that are listed in this app.  I looked up my home location and TONS of results came up.  Wow!  Who knew there were so many quilt shops I didn't know about? Upon further inspection, lots of the "quilt shops" listed have no information except for the address.  No phone, nothing at all that I can use to verify that this is actually a quilt shop without getting in the car and driving there.  When I do searches for these "quilt shops" on the computer (and what is the point of an app that you can only use with the computer??), most of them are NOT quilt shops at all.  Craft stores (think a smaller version of Michael's) or somebody's handbag boutique or whatever.  Some have absolutely no internet presence at all.  No contact information listed in the app... Maybe I can write a letter to the address to ask if it's a quilt shop?  Lol.  This app is almost completely useless as a quilt shop locator unless you pair it with a computer and do a bunch of work on your own.

I have this app on my smart phone and it is never able to access my location. Is there some setting that I need to change for this???

How about updating the Quilt shop locator app. Many of these quilt shops I have tried to visit have been closed for over 2+ years.
