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 each second and fourth Wednesday at St. Henry's Parish Center, Long Lake. Besides working on their own quilting and needlework, each year the group completes a service project to benefit a local charity. Pictured with the completed blankets are, back from left, Lorraine Pine, Jackie Mallery, Dona Hall, and front, Barbara Keough.
