I know you probably think our scrunchies are expensive. Please remember it cost to get the materials to make it along with the cost to ship the items. What you get is the best quality I can make them. These are handmade with a sewing machine. I have never had a scrunchie fall apart yet so you are getting a quality item.
Are my scrunchies perfect? No but I keep trying to make them the best of my abilities. Are you going to be able to see where I had closed the scrunchie up with. Yes most likely but I try to find a thread color as close as posssible to the color of the fabric. I am not perfect. Could I have hand sewn them. Yes, but the quality would not be there compared to using a sewing machine. It takes longer to hand sewn than it does to use a sewing machine plus I have found the quality of my own hand sewing is not as good as if I used a sewing machine. I rather make something that is of a quality product to where the scrunchie is not going to fall apart.
I have looked around at other handmade scrunchie businesses and I have found that my prices are still cheaper than some of the other businesses out there doing the same exact thing I am doing.
For the month of January, I will be giving out a free Scrunchie with every scrunchie order in addition to the current store discount. You will not get to choose though and it will always be something different than what you currently have. This way you will have something different than what you currently have.
I have a dream on how I would like Sparkal Time to be. Right now that is not a reality. I want to grow, but not grow to fast that I can’t keep up. I want to grow to the point that I need employees. My hope is when I finally need employees, that I will be able to pay them a liveable wage plus be able to give them benefits.
I know what its like not to have living wages to live on and I hope to be able to do that for my employeees when the time comes that I need employees. I want to have something other companies don’t have.
Once I need employees, that is when I will have to get a warehouse.
Today I am going to talk the tools I use for Sparkal Time. First of all lets talk about the sewing tools I use. I use a brothers computerized sewing machine. I find it easier to use compared to one that is not. I prefer to work with hand controls rather than using a foot pedal. Eventually I would like to get a serger and I know I will have to learn to use a foot pedal then.
When it comes to the fabric, I have a couple United States online companies I use. I try to find fabric I like.
Now for the cards I make, I use a cricut to make cut the cards. I also use a printer to print the cards. Not all of the cards will be using the printer. The currents ones currently are ones that require the printer but some of the future cards will not require a printer but I will be using the cricut machine to cut up or write up the text and images.
The coasters use the cricut machine also to cut up the images needed to make the coasters with.
Hello and welcome to Sparkal Time. Our focus is all handmade items. We still consider it handmade even when we use a sewing machine, serger, or technology to make the items. It still takes us time to make the items.
You may thing that this is a weird name for a company for handmade items, but I think its short and sweet. Besides creating handmade items, I am a gamer. Sparkal comes from a characters I created in STO and SWTOR. There is more fond memories in SWTOR.
I wanted to keep this short and sweet so I wanted to welcome you to our website. This will give me the opportunity to make other blog posts to explain what we do.
