ROOTHING Valley Quilters were celebrating this week having held their most successful show over the weekend.
Chairman Sallie Reynolds said: "We had an excellent weekend and were the busiest we have ever been. We are absolutely delighted about it."
It was the sixth show for the quilters and the first to be held at High Easter village hall.
"The members worked very hard getting everything ready, but in the end the hall looked magnificent with all sorts of quilts on display," said Mrs Reynolds.

"There were around 80 quilts on show including one that we all worked on that was raffled in aid of Farley Hospice in Chelmsford. That raised more than £1600 so we are absolutely thrilled with that."
More than 550 people visited the show over the two days - numbers they were not expecting - and the quilters ran out of food to serve people on the Saturday.
