Pictured: WI members with the record setting Dorset Button.
Six Women's Institute members are today celebrating being record breakers after making the world's biggest button.
The Wool WI branch co-hort spent eight weeks creating a giant 7ft 2ins Dorset Button, a traditional style of fastener dating back to the 17th century which involves binding yarn over a disc.
It was measured by an independent surveyor before being approved by Guinness World Records.
The pensioners, with an average age of 71, are Tess Burt, Kath Burt, Sandra Housego, Virginia McDermid, Sarah Gardiner and organiser Isabell van Millingen.
Isabell said the members are thrilled to set a world record and show that the WI is about more than 'drinking coffee and making cakes'.
