Because crafting stimulates the use of many different areas of the brain – working memory and attention span, visuospatial processing, creativity and problem-solving abilities – there is a hypothesis that it can help keep the brain young by preventing cerebral atrophy and significantly delaying dementia.
In case you don’t know, Flying Fingers meets monthly with the objective of making things for ourselves and others. You can choose to knit clothes for premature babies, you can sew bags to sell at our Farmers’ Market stall or you can just bring along a project you happen to be working on. Any and all crafters are welcome.
The next Flying Fingers get-together is on Monday 7 April at 10am at Val Puddiphatt’s. For more information, get in touch with Lis on (01736) 754146.
