Quilters' retreat in Alderson showcases area talent

ALDERSON, W. Va (WVVA)-- One group is celebrating their favorite hobby in Alderson.

The Alderson Quilters and Crafters' annual retreat at the town's Community Center showcases their work over the past year.

This year, they have more than 50 quilts on display. The group also makes quilts for charities and causes like breast cancer awareness and Vietnam veterans' appreciation.

During the retreat, the quilters learn techniques, teach quilting classes, and make lasting friendships.

Mary Godby, a member of the group, said, "People like the companionship that quilting brings. We share ideas and thoughts, work, and we work on projects together.

The Alderson Quilters and Crafters will still be at their retreat until Saturday afternoon at 4:30. The group invites the public to come take a look at their work or visit their website.
