Hello - I love this forum. Great idea.

I make quilts and am located in Iowa. However, when I was checking out this page - https://www.thumbtack.com/k/quilt-makers/ - Iowa isn't listed.

Also, and I've left this message before, I wish you would not promote ONLY LOCAL pros. I'm making quilts for people around the country but many people who post a "request," which is a lot of the time just an inquiry, they want to know where I live and how close I am to them. I doubt that I'm the only pro who can work with people from around the country.

Luckily for me, Thumbtack has really helped me launch my business. I love that you're working on making it better. It would be great if we were only charged when we got hired rather getting charged to answer only one question ("Where are you located? Iowa. Oh, that's too far. Thanks.")

Thanks sew much for listening. 

Chris
