Born and raised on a ranch in eastern Montana, Jim Linnell has had leather working in his blood ever since his first visit to the Miles City Saddlery. The sounds and smells of those visits are some his most vivid memories of that early introduction to the leather working world. Now, after spending the last 50 plus years working with leather and nearly 40 years in the leather industry, those sounds and smells are still a part of his life. Jim has taught leather working skills to thousands of students around the world. He received the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft in 2002.
