Sew much love

The Northern Needles Fabric Arts group from Long Lake has completed 24 fleece lap blankets that have been donated to Mercy Health Care nursing home in Tupper Lake and High Peaks Hospice. The group holds all-day work sessions the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at St. Henry's Parish Center in Long Lake. Besides working on their own quilting and needlework, each year the members complete a service project to benefit a local charity. Pictured with the completed blankets are (from left) Lorraine Pine, Jackie Mallery and Dona Hall and (front) Barbara Keough. (Photo submitted)
