Employing professional broadcast equipment, the memory restorers at Toronto Home Movies weave threadbare tapes into a sleek tapestry of digital imagery. Adept analog whisperers gently coax VHS, HI8, 8MM, Digital 8, and MiniDV ($12.50 per hour) or film ($25 for 100 ft. of 16mm film) into selflessly giving their content to the 21st century. Audio/visual virtuosos ready home videos, old movies, and public service announcement collections for transfer with a thorough cleaning and conditioning. After technicians edit out reel markers and empty frames, computers step in to scrutinize and enhance every frame for optimal colour and clarity. Customers leave with a high-quality DVD that, like every sequel ever made, is a vast improvement on the original.

Founded in 1992 with the mission of finding new faces, CA7 Creative Inc. has a staff devoted to helping beginners of all ages break out of obscurity and into the modelling, film, print, and television industries. A team of photographers, booking agents, makeup artists, and marketers congregates under one roof to score auditions for acting and modelling neophytes with no prior experience, shooting photos, augmenting cheekbones, and doling out advice to help them stand out. Their clients' faces have graced print ads, commercials, and billboards for companies including Nikon, Sony, Ikea, and Campbell's. The professional photographers snap shots of aspiring stars with skillfully arranged backdrops in a comfortable studio flanked by wood floors and large windows that permit only the most flattering of natural light to enter. They work with each subject to bring out their natural personality in each shot, capturing some clients mean mugging in leather jackets, others playfully grinning in casual duds, and some casting over-the-shoulder smoulders in cocktail-party attire.

Upholders of ancient Roman mosaic techniques since their foundation in 1990, Glass Mosaic Canada’s team of knowledgeable artisans outfits shoppers with mosaic-making supplies while helming hands-on art courses, which are ideal for summer activities, birthday parties, and pupils of all ages. Staffers bustle about the store stocking shelves with a glittering selection of tiles and tesserae imported from across the globe along with handy tools and accessories. Sage instructors employ upward of 10 years of teaching experience to impart their tile-centric prowess upon students during interactive courses and workshops that teach both basic and advanced mosaic applications depending on students' experience levels and any mosaic work done in a previous life. While specializing in all things mosaic, the store’s staff also works with homeowners to create in-home mosaics and stained-glass pieces to beautify domestic planes.

Touting a degree in Fine Arts, Framing Dames owner Catherine Hawthorn helms art classes and assists her customers in tastefully preserving their work and memorabilia with custom framing. Adults and kids aged 6–13 can learn how to draw, paint, and sculpt in a variety of classes and workshops, then hone their creative skills at home through a wide selection of art supplies available for purchase. On the framing side of the shop, the crew encloses two-dimensional masterpieces or napkins commemorating a first taste of nachos in acid-free materials designed for museum-quality protection. Three-dimensional objects, such as jerseys, can also be preserved by framing with matte and glass. In support of her community and charities, Catherine keeps a gallery dedicated to local artists and works to raise funds for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. She shows off her skills and shares her vast knowledge in her webinar series.
