Woven Threads

By Jess Lucas
Talking to my friend one day about the “It's really Interesting, I promise” history of the needle, I wondered if anyone other than my incredibly patient friend would like to hear about this and the other rabbit holes I fall down.
Craft, incredible creators and connection through history are what fascinate me. Join me, Jess Lucas, as I explore some of the craft, art and heritage that is woven through all of our lives. I will look at CRAFTSMEN, CRAFT and CULTURE in trilogies based around different themes, and would love if you could join me on this journey.
