Welcome to SPARKLE Studio! SPARKLE is the brick-and-mortar shared working and teaching fiber arts studio of Amy Shelton and Nharah Clark. We are so glad you have found us! SPARKLE is also home of two other interesting endeavors: Purposeful Intentions (Amy) and Peculiar Preserves (Nharah). Scroll to the bottom of the page for information on these sister sites.
About SPARKLE Studio
Whether you are just beginning your journey into the fiber arts or whether you’ve been creating for many years, you have found a community of people who share your love of all things fiber.
We have a passion for creating with fiber, no matter what technique we are using. Whether we are creating or teaching, we do it with love and intent from our hearts.
We are firm believers that we all have a deep-seated need to create. The act of creating satisfies a soul-deep need. It doesn’t matter what you create, as long as you create.
So many people have had their inner SPARK of creativity burned out of them over the years, through comments of others and their own inner thoughts. We are here to help you reconnect with your own inner SPARK, and help you fan that spark so your flames of creativity burn high and unrestrained!
If you’ve ever wanted to learn to express your creativity through fiber, you have found the perfect place to help you on your journey!
Please drop by the studio and visit with us. We will share the beauty of the things we’ve made and of the carefully-curated selection of tools, yarns, and fibers we carry in the studio.
We are always ready, willing, and able to help you connect with your inner sparkle.
Keep on sparkling!
Amy and Nharah
About Purposeful Intentions
One of Amy’s passions is helping women discover ways to live a heart-centered life more easily and more authentically. She has created Purposeful Intentions, where she can focus on creating a community of women who are looking for the same thing. Through the Purposeful Intentions website and the accompanying free Facebook Circle, she will be continuing her spiritual journey and exploring a number of tools such as aromatherapy, Reiki energy healing, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, numerology, tarot and oracle, and more. You’ll also be able to find spiritual items handcrafted by Amy to help you along your journey. Amy will also be offering tarot and oracle to offer you guidance along your way.
About Peculiar Preserves
Nharah has recently completed Alabama’s state Cottage Food safety certification course. She has started Peculiar Preserves, a line of jams, jellies, preserves, and syrups for those of singular tastes. She uses locally-grown fresh produce (whenever possible) to create flavors that you will not find on the shelves of your typical grocery store. Flavors are created in small limited-run batches based on what is fresh at the time, so you never know what you’ll find in stock.
You can find Nharah’s Peculiar Preserves exclusively at SPARKLE Studio. In compliance with state cottage food laws, she is unable to list her products for sale on the website, as a personal connection is required for all sales. However, if you have purchased products in our studio or you know Nharah personally, you can contact her through the Peculiar Preserves website to arrange a mail order shipment.
