CLEVER and industrious quilters met at Widgee Complex on Monday, with loads of fabrics of various colours and shapes, all ready for assembly.

Watching as they weave their magic, creating masterpieces from fabric, is most intriguing.

If you have ever wanted to have a go at quilting, come along next month and meet these ladies who spend hours cutting their fabric into very small pieces only to sew them all back together.

Cost is just $2 per person and visitors are always welcome.

The group's next meeting is Monday, May 4.
