Grey Fox Felting was born in 2015 out of a desire to build a creative career that would allow me to share my love of needle felting with others while staying at home with my child (now children). I set aside a small room in our house and began to stock it with carefully selected felting supplies to offer online, the same ones I had been using in my own artistic practice for several years at that point. I also began to work on creating my own complete felting kits as a way to be able to share this relaxing and meditative craft before I had a space to offer classes.
In March of 2019, as our business was literally bursting out of the tiny room in our house and spreading into the rest of our home, my husband John and I opened our first workshop space and storefront in New Hartford, NY. At Grey Fox Mercantile, we offer workshops, our own line of felting kits, and a wide selection of felting supplies. We are continuing to develop more felting kits as well as offering virtual classes so that we can connect with people wanting to learn this craft who may not be local.
We are so grateful for our customers and friends who have supported us on this journey, and we look forward to continuing to share more felting adventures with you in the years to come!
