About Creative Threads
Creative Threads is a fabric and yarn shop located at 922 Durham Road, Suite B, in Wake Forest, North Carolina, 30 minutes north of Raleigh. You can buy a variety of yarns and fabrics as well as supplies for knitting, spinning, quilting, sewing and rug hooking. You'll also find notions, supplies and accessories for these handicrafts, as well as store gift cards.

It was founded on Nov. 1, 2016, by Barbara Buckman, a crafter since age 11, who turned her love of sewing, knitting and artisanal handicrafts into a business that helps others enjoy their skills and hobbies as well as buy the necessary supplies.

A portion of the store is dedicated to rug hooking by AK Designs. Annette King has been rug hooking for more than 25 years and 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

The 1800-square foot shop offers an impressive selection of bright, modern fabric and yarn choices in just the right colors needed for projects customers are working on. Barbara and Annette are available to help customers with their projects or inspire them to get back on track.

The relaxing atmosphere of Creative Threads encourages crafters to come in to socialize while shopping, sit down to work on a favorite project or learn something new in one of our classes that are offered. Get your own crafting group together and use our space as your meeting place.
