Linen is an ancient fiber; it dates back thousands of years. Irish linen has been an important cultural and historical industry of Northern Ireland for over 300 years. In our project, Odyssey, Janice looks back to her childhood and the first fiber she ever used to make jewelry: waxed linen. “My best thread memories are those of waxed linen. I love how it breathes and speaks to me. It has a very special place in my heart and, I hope when you try it, you will fall in love too.” Odyssey is suited for all levels.
