Freeman's Creative is a lovely shop. They have excellent quality and very cute fabric. They also have a great selection of yarn and knitting supplies. Very customer oriented. Thank you for helping me find just the perfect backing and binding for my quilt!

This is such a great addition to the Lakewood shopping center! Amelia has a great selection of premium craft goods as well as independent sewing patterns and unique fabrics. I have attended two classes so far and the sewing instructor River is very experienced, laid back and great at helping trouble shoot pattern and fit issues when learning to garment sew. I will be using this as my primary source for local pattern purchasing as well as fabrics! Highly recommend the very reasonably priced classes.

I came to Freeman's Creative because I decided to undertake a rather complicated cross-stitch pattern as a gift for a friend's birthday. The problem was...I hadn't done any cross-stitch in about 30 years. Amelia at Freeman's Creative was helpful, kind, and encouraging and her shop had the supplies I needed to accomplish my goal (after some trial and error and a few false starts). Thank you!

Amelia knows pretty much everything about crafts and making things. Her store is the ideal place to go if you have a project you need inspiration for or if you need advice or encouragement to get you past that little problem spot in your project. And of course her materials are drool worthy. I highly recommend grabbing your tea and and relocating to Freemans Creative to put those final touches on your project and to get your next projects supplies. See you there (I'll be folded into the yellow chair, stitching and chatting)!

I just finished a 2-day sew-your-own swimsuit class and I had an amazing time! I learned so much and have so many new skills and interests to take home with me. If I could spend every weekend at Freeman's Creative, I would be the happiest person on earth!

This is the only craft store I'll ever go to again! The owner has created a very welcoming space for beginner's of any craft! The owner is also very friendly and knowledgeable! The prices are very affordable as well, in fact they are cheaper than the chain craft stores for almost everything.

Good selection of workhorse and luxury yarns. You won't find novelty yarns here, and I think that it to their credit. Good malabrigo selection. Very knowledgeable. Unusual, useful notions.

The owner of this craft store is super knowledgeable and friendly. I'm incredibly excited to take some of the classes they'll be offering & shop their selection of goods by local artists. Locally owned & operated (always a plus).

Freeman’s Creative is the best craft store in the area. They have a great selection of fabric, yarn and other craft supplies. The staff is knowledgeable and always willing to help you with a project question or color matching of yarn. I’ve taken multiple classes and learned how to sew at Freeman’s. Even in Covid they are responsive and willing to help over email. If you’re in the area, make sure to stop by Freeman’s Creative.

Amelia’s is great and super patient at helping with any project. Her selection of fabric and yarn and project patterns continues to grow and guaranteed you’ll find something at freemans to start a craft project, to gift, and for yourself!

Freeman's Creative is a wonderful place to shop, online or in-store. They have a great selection of fabrics, yarn, and crafting tools. They also have a great line-up of classes and meet-ups throughout the year. I get the sense that Freeman's Creative is just as much about community building as crafting. Shop local, because we need places like this!

Freeman’s creative is such a gem. They’ve got a great selection of patterns, fabric, yarn, and crafting tools. Strangely, I’ve never been in, I’ve only ordered online for curbside pickup during the pandemic, but I’ve been so pleased with how easy it is to order exactly what I need. Looking forward to actually walking in and perusing in person when it’s safe.

We are so lucky to have Freeman’s Creative in Durham. Beautiful fabrics, high quality yarn, and all the best and most unique notions are just the start. Their classes are fantastic and fun, but probably most importantly, Amelia and her staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and go out of their way to help you get the right supplies for your project.

Freeman's Creative is the craft shop of your dreams. Luxury and every day yarn, tons of gorgeous fabric, embroidery and cross stitch supplies and kits, pens, paper, lotsa other stuff. And their classes are phenomenal. I need another hobby like I need another hole in my head, but every time I visit, I seem to pick up another.

Freeman's Creative is a delightful shop! They have a wonderful selection of fabrics and are always getting in new and beautiful bolts. Amelia has been so kind and helpful whenever I've had questions, too. In addition, Freeman's has beautiful yarn and a wide array of other crafty item, plus cards and gifts! I'm always so happy when I can stop in. They have a robust website for online shopping and have been super careful during the pandemic, which I really appreciate. Lastly, this shop supports great causes and their local community. We're lucky to have them!

I absolutely love Freeman’s! The fabrics and patterns they sell are fantastic. They have great options for beginners and experienced makers. And the staff is always helpful! When I first started sewing, I repeatedly brought projects in when I had questions and Amelia was incredibly supportive! We’re really fortunate to have a local store that’s so encouraging and well stocked.

Freeman’s Creative is a wonderful place! The owner, Amelia, and her staff are friendly and knowledgeable about all types of crafts and materials. They’ve provided top-notch service throughout the pandemic with curbside pickup and safe policies. I’ve purchased yarn, notions, fabric, and gift cards from the shop, and I’ve taken a few classes taught by skilled and patient instructors. In addition to providing quality products, Amelia has nurtured our local craft community.

What a pleasure it is to visit Freeman’s Creative! The owner and employees are so helpful and welcoming. The yarn stock is gorgeous and plentiful. The last time I visited I only had a vague idea of what I was looking for, but I received such personalized help picking out the perfect yarn for my project. Kudos to this small business owner - you and your team are doing a great job!

Freeman’s Creative had quickly become my go-to shop for yarn when they opened. Now that I’m getting into sewing, they have become my go-to shop for fabric as well. The shop owner, Amelia, and her staff and knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They have a great selection of high quality and affordable yarn and fabric. I’ve also taken several classes that have helped me immensely in improving my crafting skills.

Just the most lovely yarn and fabric shop! I stopped by this past week just to get a needle size I didn’t have and the two folks at the store were so kind. I also found a pattern book I had been wanting. I love their selection of beautiful patterns and books in addition to the great yarns they sell. Unfortunately I don’t *need* more yarn right now but I’ll probably be back before too long to get some anyway 😂

We have been customers of Freeman's Creative for many years now. They have a wonderful selection of yarns in differing price ranges, knowledgeable and personable staff, and excellent communication through their website and social media. They seem to have great partnerships with their neighbors and the local community. Highly recommend visiting this store!
