The door of the limousine opens and flash bulbs burst in a thunderstorm of press and paparazzi. The crowd shoulders each other behind velvet ropes, craning their necks to catch a glimpse of the diamond-studded star at the head of the red carpet. When the sea of people parts, a self-assured third-grader is revealed as she greets her fawning public.
Popcorn Media gives kids the chance to experience strutting down the red carpet during their Movie Star workshops and weeklong camps.

At the end of each session, kids attend a red-carpet premier of their work amid the applause of friends and family.
The Sewing Parlour is one of Salt Lake City's first sewing lounges, offering classes in a comfortable and friendly environment for thread-bearers of all cuts. Both the sewing class and the sewing series instruct novices in machine- and hand-sewing techniques. Topics taught in the sewing class include getting to know your machine, sewing seams and curves, closing a patient after minor surgery, and making your first project. Those who elect the five-class series will learn more extensively about commercial patterns, cutting, methods of construction, pressing, and use of tools and notions (accessories). The class builds toward the construction of a final project, a kimono-style robe or top using a commercial pattern. The cost of the pattern is included in the course fee, but students will need to provide the materials, including about 4 yards of fabric (usually around $1–$8 per yard). Classes and workshops are limited to five participants to ensure everyone receives ample attention and can go out after class to play pickup basketball. Use The Sewing Parlour's machines or bring your own.
