In the 50's my grandmother and mother belonged to THE QUEEN MARY GUILD, a society for English immigres. The ladies would get together once a month at a local hall and make quilts for charity. There was always (of course) tea, and really good deserts like Lady Fingers and Seven Sisters cake. There were also lots of dubious finger sandwiches like these!
