Beary Cheap and Cobweb Cottage- The kits at both places have her book also I remember someone saying Edinburgh has the same type kits. The beginners kit has enough wool roving for 4-5 bears and her book included, along with 4 needles.
Then if you get addicted there are a couple other places, here in the states, MIELKES FARMS has the best prices I have found so far on needles, (the tips do break off on occassion) and a large supply of wool.
There is a place called Juggles, the prices aren't as good, but....
RE: ordering from Australia and New Zealand; I have found both places Beary Cheap and Cobweb Cottage , that I mentioned to be great places and the US dollar is a little stronger than their dollars so your order won't be as much as it states, last time I checked the exchange rate we were about 89 cents to their dollar. I figure that covers the shipping.
Also CobWeb Cottage, is Barbara Allen's website, and she wrote the book I was mentioning, and she is having a sale on different wools. AND I have emailed her with a couple of questions and she responds very very quickly!
The place in Wisconsin, MIELKES FARM, has an awkward web site, but the prices are worth it and they carry a bunch of other fiber arts stuff too.
OK, since I am new to felting I don't know nearly as much as the others and I bet they have even better web sites to share with us.
But maybe this helps a little
