About Us

Thank you for shopping JeNan Wood and Fiber

We are Nancy and Thomas Smith (Nana and Pop Pop to the grandchildren).  We have lived in Milledgeville, Georgia our entire adult lives.  Our business name (JeNan) is a combination of our two daughter's names.

After retiring from the fire service (Thomas) and (Nancy) as a professor at our local junior college, we have started our second careers.  We started out in craft shows approximately 20 years ago.  Along the way we transformed into making accessories for the fiber enthusiast and began vending at fiber shows.

Nancy has been an avid fabric artist for most of her life - sewing anything from custom window treatments, prom dresses, and even our younger daughter's wedding gown.  She also has been knitting a good bit of her adult life as well.  I really appreciated all the warm socks on a cold night while I was working.

As for me, (Thomas) I knew very little about woodworking.  That all changed one day when Nancy asked me to make her a nostepende.  I had no idea what that was.  So, I learned to turn!  Next came the yarn caddie, then the swift.  Since then we haven't looked back.

From this beginning, we have grown.  We continue to improve our products for our customers.  We hope you enjoy using our offerings as much as we enjoyed creating them.
