US quilting communities have been ripped apart by a fractious political climate and comments leaked from a secret Facebook group.
Quilting – it’s an innocent-sounding traditional art, and one with a rich social and political history. And the art is not immune to America’s fractious political climate, as a conflict has erupted online amongst those within the quilting world.

Also on the programme, in the wake of the surprising results from the UK general election we’ll dissect a new political phenomenon found on Facebook.
