Stephanie King-Myers and Nancy Bigley founded Bottle & Bottega as a fun, artistic space where guests could, as King-Myers phrases it on their website, “feel like they’re having a party in their living room.” Established in 2009, the guided painting emporium has already expanded to six main locations in two states.
La Grange owners and dedicated community members Paul and Meg Lefaivre were ecstatic to bring Bottle & Bottega to their neighborhood. The Lefaivres, along with a slate of local artists, encourage participants of any artistic level to unleash their creativity onto the canvas, creating their own versions of famous paintings that they can hang in their living rooms or over their bathroom mirrors in an attempt to be famous themselves.
Despite an ever-growing base of more than 1,000 clients, Amy Tripple prefers to say she's honed her skills through her main source of inspiration: her own three children. The former elementary teacher employs her advanced child-handling skills as she captures candid images of young ones, preserving childhood memories more easily than laminating a beloved stuffed animal. The National Association of Child Photographers member also shares her know-how through regular classes that cover the basic elements of DSLR photography and how to manipulate the resulting images in digital scrapbooks and Adobe Photoshop.
Breaking glass is easy, but slicing it takes a subtle touch. Luckily, the Gallery's Choice's staff of skilled artisans demonstrate how to safely dance the flame of the torch as it transforms powdered glass into beautiful works of exquisite jewelry. Students of all ages can learn how to make stained-glass artworks, how to create colorful jewelry, and how to fuse glass rather than just holding pieces together with rubber banding. Beyond their creative curriculum, the studio also sells one-of-a-kind creations made by a roster of more than 75 local artists.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My target clientele is moms, or any other women, who would like to learn to play the piano in a relaxed, no-pressure environment, so that they are able to then teach others, or simply in order to be able to play their favorite songs for themselves and their loved ones.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students should bring to their lesson the name of 3 songs which they wish they could play.
If the student decides to continue with more lessons they will need to purchase the Bastien Piano books at a total cost of $20 for four books.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Many moms who sign their kids up for piano lessons say that they wish that they could have had the opportunity to take lessons when they were young.
I would like to encourage them to take advantage of the opportunity that they have now.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching the students progress to the point where they can play their favorite songs with pure joy.
