You can use a thick piece of foam or a pice of rigid foam insulation for a work surface too. I would invest in extra needles as especially in the beginning you break a lot of them. I got a multineedle set from Maplerose in Canada and had roving already. For the insides of my creations I use wool batting from mostly meat breed sheep (it is easy to get it free around here) and wash it on my own and have it processed but I know I have seen good prices for batting mentioned in here or in doll crafts forum. I use roving for the outsides. There are a few fun books around but really if you just play around with the materials, starting simply with a ball and figuring out what works for you, it is pretty simple stuff. Have fun with it! It is easy to get hooked! You can see a few of my creations on my blog.
