The Fragment Society is a charitable women's society, founded in 1812 in Boston and incorporated in 1816. The members of the Fragment Society make and buy clothing to be given to those in need. It is one of the oldest continuously-operating sewing circles in the United States. They chose their name from the parable of Jesus feeding the multitude with loaves of bread and fish. Jesus reminds his disciples to leave nothing behind, “to gather up the fragments that remained, that nothing be lost.” The society celebrated their bicentennial in October 2012.
