The First Stitch

... Thus the day was spent in friendly gossip as they quilted and rolled and talked and laughed... Harriet Beecher Stowe

We are a group of eight friends who have been quilting, cooking, eating, gossiping, weeping and laughing together for over 15 years.

Some of us were founders of a formal quilting organisation but after a few years couldn't cope with the constraints i.e. lack of laughs as the group got bigger and bigger. So we rebelled, closed ranks and surreptitiously became 'sew-together', sharing the threads and patches of our lives as well as our fabrics.

We are starting this blog to share together our recipes, our quilt patterns and our lives.
