We thought you might like to listen to this from Womens Hour on Wednesday 15 Aug 2018 on BBC Radio 4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bf4cjw

They had a ‘Listener Week’ where listeners are invited to write in to suggest topics of discussion. If you listen from 32.00 minutes you’ll hear a lovely discussion about quilting and quilting groups. A quilter from Dundee- Penelope Wild, who attends a monthly group in her area had written in and suggested quilting as a topic. They extended the topic by looking at the way social media has contributed to the revival of the Quilting Bee as the other guest was Naomi Clarke (@naomialicec on Instagram) who has started an online quilting group that get together via the hashtag #fussycuttingsewalong. Both online and local groups remind us of the fabulous community spirit of getting together to sew. Enjoy listening
