OGDEN, Utah - Women at a Utah senior center have spent years working with yarn and small hooks, but now they're asking for help continuing to crochet items for those in need.

Women at the Golden Hours Senior Center have been hosting crochet and knitting classes for more than ten years and they've put their work to good use, making warm gifts for those in need.

"Oh we've been doing this for years. I've been coming over for sixteen years and we've been doing our knitting class for over sixteen years," said Sallie A. Tibbs, a knitting teacher.

They deliver items to McKay Dee Hospital, Ogden Regional Hospital and Wahlen Veterans Home.

"We get yarn donated and we turn it into Afghans, lap robes, little papoose things for the hospital for the newborns and the bigger babies," said Tibbs.

But the Golden Hours women have a serious problem; they've run out of yarn and they're hoping the public can donate some supplies so people of all ages can stay warm.
