About Us

On November 1, 2016, after months of hard work and long hours, Wake Forest resident Barb Buckman is living her lifelong dream of owning a fabric and yarn shop. The store has been a passion project for both she and her husband, Dave, who created the shelving, yarn bins and other merchandising features.

Barb, a crafter since age 11, moved here six years ago and began doing projects for the Cary Quilt Shop. She's also completed hundreds of quilting, sewing and craft projects for her delighted daughters, granddaughters, friends and neighbors.

Creative Threads offers you a relaxing atmosphere to come in and socialize while shopping or just working on a favorite project.  The fabric and yarn choices are bright and modern and just the right colors for whatever seasonal project you might be working on.  If you need help on a project, we are here to help and get you back on track.

New to the shop is the addition of rug hooking by AK Designs.  Annette King has been rug hooking for about 25 years and is excellent at what she does.  If you are unfamiliar with the art of rug hooking, come on in and try it. Annette offers free classes and can create custom designs.  AK Designs carries wool fabric and yarn, canvases, hooks, frames and more for all your hooking needs

We'd love to meet you so please come visit!
