Spark Creativity — a new neighborhood shop with hard-to-find arts and crafts materials, handmade gift items and classes with nationally known instructors — is now open in the Suniland Plaza.
“The Spark Creativity slogan is ‘make stuff, be happy’,” said owner Jennifer Klein. “Our goal is to offer artists and crafters an inspiring work space with access to highquality, hard to find materials at a reasonable price. We saw the need in Miami-Dade for an arts and crafts shop that supports local creativity with a community-based, local source for materials and equipment.”
Miami-Dade crafters, scrappers, quilters and jewelry makers now have a local alternative to big-box craft retailers. Currently, Spark Creativity offers the largest selection of Miyuki glass beads, Ranger inks and Moda fabrics in the county.
Spark Creativity offers an atelier atmosphere with an inspiring studio stocked with a variety of tools for members to use on their own schedule, including, die-cutting equipment, jewelry kiln, embroidery and sewing machines. Studio day passes are available for $15 and monthly memberships begin at $35. Benefits of membership include discounts on materials and classes.
The Studio is a wonderful location to host a girls’ night out, special crafting private party or fundraising event. Private party event projects start at just $15 per person.
The Spark Creativity spring schedule offers of classes with accomplished teachers from around the United States. Classes include quilting, mixed media collage techniques, watercolor card making, bead weaving and many other creative pursuits.
