Julia is an aging actress, determined to master quilting for her new movie role. Donna’s daughter is slipping away from her, and Megan is trying to adjust to life as a divorcée. Then there’s Grace, protecting the secret that’s brought her quilting to a standstill, and cheerful Vinnie, determined to overcome her sad history. When all five women befriend each other at the Elm Creek Quilt Camp in Pennsylvania, they agree to a challenge: Each must tackle her troubles before contributing a piece to a quilt they will sew together next year. Quickly, the craft turns into a comfort, as each woman learns how friendship can help weave together a fraying life.
