In 1987 a group of eleven members of the Yorkshire Countrywomen wanted to learn more about patchwork, one was already a patchworker and agreed to become the tutor - the Leconfield Quilters was formed.
Regular meetings were held in members' homes with a new technique being taught at each session.
In 1990 a joint exhibition with the local flower arranging group was held in Leconfield Church, the success of which led to many more joining the quilters and to the need for larger premises.
With the change of premises and the increase in size the group took on a more formal aspect, of course, the move from Leconfield meant that the name was no longer appropriate and following a vote by members The Friendship Quilters were born
The group meets every first and third Wednesday in the Month
