[klahch, klach] /klɑtʃ, klætʃ/

a casual gathering of people, especially for refreshments and informal conversation:
a sewing klatsch.

1953, from German Klatsch “gossip,” which is said in German sources to be imitative (cf. klatschen “clap hands,” klatsch “a single clap of the hands”). Also cf. clap (v.), which in Middle English also had a sense of “talk noisily or too much, chatter” (late 14c.).
