NEEDLES and threads were flying in Draycott as a group of women busily created a quilt made of 'recycled' materials.
The women from Draycott Quilters made the colourful creation out of shirts, skirts, trousers and tops bought at charity shops in the area.
After snipping and sewing, the old clothes were used to make a quilt which will be auctioned at a black tie ball next month.
Marcia Filer, aged 49, said: "Money from the sale of the quilt will be donated to Help the Child. We chose that charity because it is based in Somerset and we wanted to do something for a local group."

The quilters, whose members are from Axbridge, Cheddar, Cross and Wells, meet at Oakland House in Wells Road in Draycott.
The quilt will be auction at a ball at Rookery Manor in Edingworth Road in Edingworth on November 2. Tickets for the ball, priced £30, are available from Marcia on 01934 744195.
