Sew from the Heart beats with owner Susie's passion for textiles and fashion cultivated during her more than 40 years as a seamstress. Together with husband Hank, a retired Air Force fighter pilot who traded brawny planes for delicate needles, she shares her love with the public via a menu of classes ranging from embroidery and quilting to garment creation. The husband-and-wife team teaches students sewing-machine and software use, and frequently leads workshops such as how to turn T-shirts into quilts and how to turn quilts into T-shirts for giants. Their spacious store also houses a seemingly endless array of sewing products, stocking kits with threads and fabrics or outfitting workshops with machines, books, and software.
At Scottsdale Golf Place, X-Golf simulators immerse golfers in a realistic replication of world-famous courses using accurate video analysis, high-definition graphics, and a 5.1 channel sound system. Golfers can play a round at Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, and Spyglass without having to put up with the exorbitant expense and secret handshakes needed to enter the courses. The simulator floor tilts to create uphill, downhill, and side-hill lies to reflect the player’s ball location on the course, and two video cameras play back swings for later review. With the available video playback, the simulator doubles as a teaching mechanism for Scottsdale Golf Place’s class-A PGA instructors, who use it to review a swing’s club path, ball-launch angle, and follow-through pirouettes.

Catering services take Classic Cooking's French–Native American fusion on the road to feed handfuls of hungry partygoers or infinite imaginary friends.
