A simple sewing tutorial from Mikala Cash's grandmother at age six sparked a passion in the Creative Sewing Lessons' founder that continues to smolder after an education from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. At her North Attleboro studio, Mikala guides students of various levels through a range of classes, including tailoring, invisible zippers, and sewing for kids, which arms youngsters with the know-how to construct business suits for lemonade stand conventions. In addition to her sewing classes, Mikala invites guest artists to lead workshops during her Creative Night Out series, a monthly event that introduces participants to hands-on subjects such as visual journaling and knitting.

While she was traveling back and forth from the Northeast to the Midwest every week, Mari Vivace found herself frustrated by her lack of makeup, or rather, her lack of makeup she needed. She actually owned enough makeup to fill a suitcase, but she didn't want to cart it all around like some sort of pageant queen who moonlights as a RuPaul impersonator. Yet, that's what she would have to do if she was ever going to have the right products to create a soft daytime and a more vibrant nighttime look. She finally realized that if she was ever going to get multipurpose makeup, she'd have to create it herself. And thus, Inspiration Cosmetics was born.

Today, Inspiration Cosmetics' products streamline the makeup process. Things like the paraben-free 3-in-1 Stick, which can be used as a blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow, and the Lip Twins cylinder, which contains both a lipstick and a matching liner, make getting ready in the morning even faster. The website offers tips for applying each product, and Inspiration Cosmetics even has a cadre of makeup artists who video chat with clients to teach them how to design the perfect look for work or a night out on the town.

Starting Friday, October 5 at 6 p.m. and running through Monday, October 8, O Fest RI, spearheaded by Doherty's East Avenue Irish Pub, celebrates autumn with beer, live music, and general merriment. The festival features fall-themed libations from as far away as Germany itself—with Oktoberfest brews from Spaten, Hofbrau, and Paulaner—and those from closer to home from brewers such as Harpoon, Sam Adams, and Shipyard. In addition, the festival will feature a lineup of musical acts, including What Matters and Those Guys.

Doherty's East Avenue Irish Pub, whose whopping 82 taps helped earn it an award for Best Bar and Beer Selection in The Phoenix's Best of Providence 2011, will anchor the celebration from their dark-wood bar. The bar itself serves a host of culinary treats from Prince Edward Island mussels in zesty zuppa sauce to blackened jerk salmon. An outdoor patio plays host to al fresco dining and lassoing the moon to impress dates.

Amid the cheerful orange walls of Extreme Clean Laundry, rows upon rows of advanced, stainless-steel washers and dryers bustle and hum while cleansing vestments. Four jumbo washers scrub loads of up to 60 pounds within 12 minutes, and the massive dryers can tackle up to 75 pounds at a time. A rechargeable-swipe-card system eliminates the need to use up quarters or valuable antique doubloons and three flat-screen televisions tower over the expansive seating area where video games and vending machines abound.

In addition to self-service laundry, Extreme Clean Laundry lets customers drop off their soiled duds. Armed with quality detergents and softeners, staff members meticulously wash, dry, and fold each item, matching socks, spot-checking for stains, and combing through gorilla suits to remove banana remnants.
