Members of the Happy Hookers sewing and knitting group are making lap throws for residents at the St Luke's Hospital Miners Campus.

The group meets every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the community room of the ABC Hi-Rise in Tamaqua. Their needle work consists of cross stitch, hand quilts, granny squares and more.

The members also enjoy time spent socializing with each other.
