Besides a working kitchen, there are two things a person needs in order to cook: the right gear and the right recipes. The chefs and food aficionados at Kitchen Fantasy supply both with an extensive stock of cookware and a full schedule of cooking classes. Kitchen Fantasy's products run the gamut from tools, like cheese slicers and meatball makers, to accessories, such as chef's coats. Its courses, taught by a team of experienced chefs, touch on general and specific cooking techniques, from knife skills to vegetable-cooking methods less destructive than flooding a garden with boiling water.
Like fancy suits, sofa sets are sewn from the same cut of fabric. These matching sets provide a well-rounded look in living rooms, but near misses tend to clash due to their small differences. At 20 show rooms throughout the western US, Mor Furniture for Less arranges complete-room sets so customers can envision the collections in their own homes. Furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, and children's rooms can be found in each store along with individual lamps, tables, and entertainment centers. The stores also carry complete sets of beds, dressers, and nightstands so that homeowners don’t receive criticism from design bloggers in their dreams.
Great West Christmas Trees sources fresh-cut noble firs from a farm in Stayton, Oregon and guarantees that owners will be satisfied with their new festive foliage. Upon arrival on the lot, tree hunters can peruse the extensive lineup of seasonal specimens, where they?ll be able to inspect candidates for shapeliness, fullness, and resemblance to holiday catalogue models. Once they?ve made a selection, they?ll be able to enlist the assistance of the on-hand helpers with affixing the tree to the top of a car for the ride home.
The certified flight instructors at Hemet-Ryan Flight Training fuel the aeronautical dreams of aspiring pilots through instruction on the ground and in the cockpits of training aircraft. Students take off from Hemet-Ryan Airport and steer a Cessna 152, 162, or 172 around the wide-open airspace nearby, which sees less traffic than most other airports, so students can spend more time practicing and less time waiting at stop lights. The school offers training courses for earning private and sport pilot's licenses as well as instrument ratings, though first-timers typically start off with a Discovery Flight to get a taste of flying.
Owned and operated by artist Kelly Hutchinson, Kelly's Art & Frame is home to a 2,800-square-foot art gallery where original paintings, watercolors, and limited-edition prints line the walls. Onsite custom framing services combine archival materials and meticulous work to properly preserve drawings, sculptures, and cherished pieces of ABC gum. With fellow artist Carol Fogelsong, Kelly also leads art classes, teaching the fundamentals to students during intimate group sessions.
Through innovation and a passion for creation, Eleanor Burns revolutionized the process by which quilts are made. She cast off the shackles of scissors and templates for a more visceral approach that combines the ripping and stripping of fabric with an assembly-line approach to sewing. The new process brought an exciting speed to an activity once known for taking months and causing anyone who attempted it to grow a 4-foot beard. To spread the word and bolster the quilting community, she released her first book, Make a Quilt in a Day––Log Cabin Pattern.
Thirty years and 100 quilt books and patterns later, she continues to promote the art of the quilt and to improve the efficiencies of quilt construction. Along with a staff of fellow seamstresses, she began Quilt in a Day to further spread her message through simple and social classes filled with thorough and accurate instruction. Beginners can register for classes or attend a demo day, where refreshments fuel entertainment and scraps of fabric fly.
