Quil­ters’ gift keeps on giv­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A GIFT from al­most 200km will keep giv­ing to the Mun­dub­bera com­mu­nity.

The Mun­dub­bera Lemon Quil­ters have used $600 do­nated to them by a quil­ter group at Theodore, about 179km north-west of Mun­dub­bera, to buy a new over­locker.

In a let­ter to the quil­ters, the Patches and Stitches group ex­pressed their em­pa­thy to their coun­ter­parts con­cern­ing the 2010/11 floods, and signed it from their “sis­ters in patch­work”.

The Mun­dub­bera quil­ters said they­were amazed by the ges­ture.

“We are so grate­ful for their kind­ness and de­cided to buy a good-qual­ity over­locker,” quil­ter Lyn Car­lyon said.

“When­ever we use it we’ll re­mem­ber the gen­eros­ity of the Theodore quil­ters,” she said.
