A touching gift for our Glasshouse Views Community

Posted by McKenzie | 12 Jun 2019

The Mooloolah Valley Quilting and Craft Group have been hard at work over the last several months making a quilt for Glasshouse Views.

Residents, staff, volunteers and management were thrilled with the presentation of this beautiful quilt to the home.

Facility Manager, Liz Oss-Emer, was presented with the quilt at a recent morning tea. “When a member of our community passes, we honour them with a special ceremony, and this quilt will be a part of that ceremony,” she said.

The quilt is a landscape, representing elements from the local Beerwah environment – the rivers and creeks, mountains and farmland. There is beautiful detail in the work, which residents took delight in examining, appreciating the hours of effort and tremendous skill evident in the quilt. 

The Mooloolah Valley Quilting and Craft Group meet weekly to work on their various individual and group projects. The Group chooses a special project to work on every year. For some members, being a part of one social and charitable crafty group isn’t enough – President Judy is also a member of Sunshine Linus Inc, who donate their beautiful items to groups and individuals in need.
