Hello All - Don't know if this counts but I'm originally from England but now live in Michigan in the US!
To Michelle re Hobby craft - I looked at their website and saw they carry Regia yarn which I believe is a good brand, they also have Patons too. I suppose it depends on your experience level and what you want to make. I've bought the majority of my sock wool from very similar stores in the US and have been very happy with the brands and the selection. Maybe one day I'll work my way up to using hand spun and hand dyed expensive yarn, but I'm not ready for that yet!
