According to the Haberman family, we are in the midst of a sewing renaissance. Having been in the business of selling a variety of fabrics, sewing supplies, and accessories since 1958, they should know. Owner Toby Haberman sees sewers inspired by TV’s Project Runway and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition wander the aisles of Haberman Fabrics’ 18,000-square-foot store, considering silks, lace, denims, or velvets for their projects. Many of them stay for sewing classes, in which both novices and intermediate sewers can learn new skills or wear thimbles on every finger.
The Art of Custom Framing transforms interior spaces with collectibles, fine art, and wall decor, as well as high-quality custom framing services. Inside the store's gallery, eyes can only try to keep pace with the thousands of options and combinations that stretch across walls and displays.

Every year at Ann Arbor Fest, Catching Fireflies founders Steve and April paused from manning their paper-arts booth to admire the folksy paintings of local artist Chris Roberts-Antieau.

Now, Catching Fireflies’ inventory spans the spectrum, from leather-bound journals and wall art to children’s toys, and has been lauded in Rochester-Rochester Hills Patch. Once customers have honed in on wares, staff can gift-wrap them free of charge, thereby eliminating the need to conceal them behind Groucho glasses.

A group of nine people stand smiling for a photo—teammates, a family, a group of old friends. They all grin together, and when the photo is developed, eight of the nine have their eyes open. Hite Photo addresses this and other common photo problems directly, offering retouching, restoration, and a head-or-eye switch service, which eliminates the difficulty of getting a big group to all smile fetchingly or group-grimace in unison.
