Oh yes - please do, it is one of my favourite places in the world! If they weren't 4 hours drive away I would be there every week. If you go in person you can select your own botany lap waste from the big bins (just ask for a bag to put it in), then of course there are all of the lovely boxes of wool and other fibres upstairs and they don't seem to mind you stroking them all to your heart's content. The staff are really helpful too, I'm sure if you explain your are new to this felting lark they will point you towards some suitable fibres.
I am so jealous!!
Top tip - if you are on a budget don't take your credit card
It's good I don't live close to any such fiber store. I believe I would spend all of my money there. By buying from a catalogue at least I manage to control my spending. Polly, I wish I could visit WW.
Ohh I will meet you all there and you can show me what I should be getting. I did nip to hobby craft yesterday and got a few small packs, just so I could have a go. And now my index finger is very painful where I hit it a few times with the needle. But I am in the process of trying to make something.
Halay its really wet felting I want to be doing, and when I have finished the needle felting I have started I will be having a go at the wet felting. Just fancied a go with the needle, and although my fingers resemble a pin cusion at the moment I am quite enjoying myself.
Halay - what are you needle-felting? Is it 2D or 3D? If 2D you might be safer using a wooden skewer or cocktail stick to pin your wool down while needling, that way on the stick gets stabbed! It's a bit more tricky if working on a 3D project though...
