On the right as you enter is the bedroom, where the eldest couple slept. It was not used exclusively as a bedroom as nowadays but was also the room where children were born, where the sick were confined....
The quilts and clothing hanging on the hanger or on the walls were made at home on the loom, woven with needles or crochet (the hooks were made from a branch of heather) or with Grandma Mary’s sewing machine. The materials of the garments are: wool, linen, cotton, strips of rags ...
The mattress on the bed is of straw and in the bedroom we also have cots for children, since they often slept with their grandparents in the same room, together with luggage, cases, the sewing machine and so on.
