What a great ‘Reminiscence Artefact Handling Session’ we had today at Lifford Hospital with some of its service users. It was so lovely to meet so many new faces and to talk about days gone by – pulling flax or ‘lint’, the feeling of the oil on your hands afterward, the smell of the retting dams, spinning yarn and so much more. Everyone enjoyed handling the artefacts in our ‘Flax to Linen yarn’ box.  Sion Stables would like to thank activities coordinator Marina for all her help today and to wish all the participants a very Merry Christmas.
