We’re Opening a Store!!!

After running Grey Fox Felting for four years, I’ve decided to expand my business into Grey Fox Mercantile, a collaboration between my husband and me, and our first brick and mortar storefront! We’ve located a perfect location in our hometown of New Hartford, NY, we’ve signed the lease, and we’ve started working on the 700 square feet that will become our retail and workshop space.

a peek at our future retail and workshop space!

In this space, we plan to offer our full in-house line of felting kits and original felted animal sculptures, the beautiful selection of felting wool in virtually every color imaginable that you’ve come to know through our online presence, as well as a curated selection of handmade goods by artisans we love. We will host free craft nights for the community, and we will offer workshops and fiber arts-based birthday/special occasion parties for guests of all ages. We’re working really hard to transform this space to make it a truly unique place to learn about fiber arts and find beautiful artisan goods.

We’re planning to open this spring, and we can’t wait to welcome you! If you’d like to follow along on our progress, you can find us on Instagram @greyfoxmercantile and @greyfoxfelting
