I've been to both places.. The Black Sheep carries mostly needle point and embroiydery supplies.. the do have a small selection of yarns and needles in the back of the store. Sip and Knit is a fully stocked yarn shop with enough yarn for any knitter.. she also carries a variety of needles.. If u need a special needle call her first to see if she has it in stock.
Two other shops in the area that are a bit farther are KNIT! located in Longwood and Knit n Nibble in Tampa. Both are a bit of a trip from Kissimmee but wonderful knitting shops. Hope that helps. (^_^)

My partner and I will be living in east Orlando at the end of the month. It would be great if we could start up a central Florida stitch and bitch or craft group. We don't knit but we both crochet. I also cross stitch on occasion, embroider, make jewelry out of thrifted buttons and shrinky dinks, and illustrate on the computer.

Hope to meet some of you out there...

There are a few SnB groups in the Orlando area you might want to check out..here is one.. I'm not sure of the area you are moving to but this is in the east orlando area

 This is a fun group..I go to this one even though it's not very close to me.... I'm in Kissimmee, which is south of there. I knit and crochet and some of the other ladies embroider and knit..there are some spinners.. all are welcome. I tend to notice that most knitters also do other crafts.

Oh wow, Sip and Knit looks wonderful, but it also looks like the kind of yarn that I'm currently too poor to endulge in.  Maybe after my internship starts, I'll be able to buy some!

Looks like they're mostly focused towards knitters, though.  I guess I'll have to stick to JoAnn's and Michael's for my crochet needs.  Wink

i could have sworn there was a little hobbie/craft store in downtown deland?maybe they moved?

DeLand Quilt shop on Rich has a great selection of fabrics. They just moved into a larger location from their little shop on New York Ave. There's also a bead shop on Rich, as well as one on 17-92. These shops are a bit more pricey, but great selection.

I wish there was more stuff in Deland. We're in the process of moving downtown but it seems like so many businesses are leaving.

I'm in Polk County and I was certain there were no yarn stores in the area. That is until I went to a nice little hair salon off Overlook Drive and saw, to my delight and surprise, the Yarn Basket in the same plaza. It's not huge, but it's there, which is the important part.

And, besides Jo-Ann's, there are two quilting shops in Winter Haven. One is called Heart to Heart Fabrics & More and it's right near Jo-Ann's. The other (and bigger) one is called Heartfelt Quilting & Sewing.

I have visited all three places and give them all a thumbs up!

I visited a quilt shop in downtown Lakeland, it was on the same street as the big scrapbook store called victorias or something like that I can remember.  I am bad.  The quilt shop was so nice though. I loved downtown.  Adorable!  I live in Pinellas County.
