I was browsing through the yarn aisle at Walmart a couple of days ago when much to my surprise, I stumbled upon a small display of needle felting supplies! (I can't remember the last time I went to Walmart, so I don't know how long they've carried this stuff.) They were selling a small kit with needles, a piece of foam, a paper template of a flower, and some instructions. Plus small packages of roving, with 2 similar colours per pack (almost enough to fill a juice glass, for around $3.00 Canadian).  They also had pre-made flower brooches and handbags on the same display, made to look like they've been needle felted by hand.

I can't say I fell in love with the products themselves. I do, however, like the thought of making felting supplies more accessible to people who'd like to try needle felting for the first time. I know there's nowhere else around here that sells them, and buying online can feel overwhelming. I wouldn't buy all my supplies there, but I definitely would have bought my first starter kit, if they had been available at the time. It seems like an unlikely place, but keep your eyes peeled at Wal-Mart if you're having trouble finding needles and roving.

I've seen supplies at Hobby Lobby and Hancock fabrics. I was really surprised!
