Jen was originally from here but left when she was 18 off into the wider yonder of the world. After living in inner city Melbourne for the most part and travelling extensively for the past 20 years, she found herself back here. It took some time to adjust but has now found her feet and has even established her business, A Piece of Cloth here.
Nat grew up in Thornbury; an inner-Northern suburb of Melbourne and then as an adult, spent many years Bayside in Elwood and East St. Kilda. She worked for 13 years in the fashion industry; designing, cutting and making clothes happen before she met the love of her life, made a baby and moved to Geelong via London. Seven years, two more babies and a well-established business, A Skulk of Foxes, later, she finds herself taking the hold of the reigns with Jen and sharing the adventures and treasures that her new-ish hometown has to offer!
How they met………
Jen had just crawled her way off the red-eye from Los Angeles and straight to her stall at Piccadilly Market, with her latest haul of vintage fabrics from the USA. Jet lagged and propping her eyes up with multiple coffees, Nat was manning her business next door and took pity on Jen’s poor soul and bloodshot eyes! The two instantly hit it off and Nat somehow managed to keep Jen awake and entertained for the duration! Over the last few years, they have worked together, shared many laughs, tears and bottles of red!
