A message from Patti Jacobson.
I’m Patti Jacobson, the owner of SHEEP THRILLS, which is located in Lauderhill, Florida in central Broward County midway between Boca Raton in Palm Beach County and Aventura in Miami-Dade County – a short drive to the Beachs of Fort Lauderdale and the Mega Sawgrass Mills Mall – SHEEP THRILLS is destined to become the go to destination for locals, snow birds and tourists who enjoy knitting, crocheting or weaving.
Not only do we carry the yarns, patterns, notions, looms and books you need but we have put together specialty kits to satisfy all your interests. We also offer classes geared to every level from beginner to expert to help you improve your skills and develop new talents and techniques. Basic skills classes (Learn How to . . .) in knitting, crocheting and weaving are offered on an ongoing basis on different days and at different times to fit your schedule. SHEEP THRILLS also offers a wide variety of project specific classes to show you how to make, sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats, gloves, bags and novelties that you will be proud to own or give as gifts. There are intermediate and advanced skill classes taught by our talented staff or by expert teachers, who we will invite from all over the country, where experienced knitters, crocheters and weavers will learn the intricacies of advanced techniques such as, entrelac knitting, brioche, double knitting, short rows and color work. SHEEP THRILLS will have classes to teach you how to hand dye your own undyed yarn (which we sell), block and finish your projects and make miniature themed trees, which Patti has been doing for years. We are currently arranging to have classes taught in Chinese, Spanish and French by skilled bilingual teachers and are always looking for people with special talents to broaden our instructional offerings.
We are constantly updating our inventory so that you will find something new and interesting every time you visit our shop. We are putting together a great selection of buttons, knitting needles, crochet hooks and other notions. We are committed to having sufficient quantities on hand of the yarns we carry to make sure you will always be able to buy what you need to make your projects.
We never charge for winding any of the yarns you buy from us and we are always available to offer personalized service, project inspiration, and ongoing support throughout your creative journey and, if you run into a problem that requires more, individual lessons are available at reasonable prices.
SHEEP THRILLS will be hosting trunk shows, sponsoring knit-a-longs, overseeing special projects for local charities that our customers vote to adopt, and organize special trips and weekend retreats.
We all recognize that there is a significant social component to the knitting, crocheting and weaving experience. It offers a unique opportunity for people who share a common interest to interact, learn from each other, become friends and escape the stresses of everyday life. At SHEEP THRILLS we are dedicated to fostering an atmosphere where old friends can meet and new friends can be made. Water, soda, tea, coffee and light refreshments are on us. Our lounge areas are intended for our customers to sit, knit, relax and schmooze. We want everyone to always feel WELCOME at SHEEP THRILLS.
