Hello! I’m Erin Gardner, the owner, designer, and maker behind Grey Fox Felting.

From a very young age when my mother would organize craft projects for my sister and me using materials from around the house and our backyard, creative making has continued to remain an important part of my daily life and my very being.

When I started Grey Fox Felting, I had been needle felting for several years. I was then a new mother, and I wanted to build a career for myself that would allow me to stay at home with my child.  I realized there was potential to share my love of this craft by offering beginner felting kits and a selection of quality materials to other makers wanting to learn the art of needle felting.

In March of 2019, my husband John and I opened our first workshop space and storefront in our hometown of New Hartford, NY. At Grey Fox Mercantile, I offer workshops, my line of felting kits, handcrafted needle felted sculptures,  and the same carefully selected supplies that I use in my own artistic practice.

Please note that at this time, we are not offering in-person classes, and our storefront is open By Appointment Only. To schedule a visit or inquire about online workshops, please use our contact form here.
