Sew L.A. In Silver Lake

I’m not a crafty, do-it-yourself type person. The thought of sewing something by hand makes me feel itchy, but I do admire other people who can put together a handmade outfit that doesn’t resemble the Theo Huxtable shirt. For those of you who are crafty or who are interesting in becoming a little more adept in that area, check out Sew L.A. in Silver Lake.

The second floor storefront on Silver Lake Boulevard (right across from LAMILL Coffee) can be easy to overlook. (I’d walked past it countless times assuming it was a tailor, but like I said, I repel craft.) Sew L.A. is actually a woman-owned, family-run fabric shop and sewing classroom. They have beginner to advanced classes, available for both private and group, where you can learn to sew home decor items, accessories, handbags, and apparel like skirts, dresses, basic tees, coats, kids items and more. Sew L.A. also carries gorgeous fabrics–mainly sourced from small companies and independent designers–both online and in the shop. They have really great online reviews, too!

Samuel-Novarro House In The Oaks

2255 Verde Oak Drive
Los Angeles 90068

3 BR, 3 BA

The historic Samuel-Novarro house was built in 1928 by Lloyd Wright for Ramon Novarro’s close friend and business manager, Louis Samuel. The residence changed hands when Novarro (best known for his role in Ben-Hur) discovered Samuel had been embezzling from him and using some of the money to pay his mortgage on the Lloyd Wright home. Novarro took over ownership of the art deco/Mayanesque estate to avoid pressing charges and bringing unwanted attention to his personal life.

The majestic 4-level, 3-bedroom home is built into the side of a hill in the exclusive Oaks neighborhood in Los Feliz. It has been meticulously restored and features sleek concrete floors, dramatic windows, countless architectural details, beautiful outdoor spaces, an enclosed pool and terrace with a jasmine covered walkway.

The incredible home has consistently attracted celebrity owners, including Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Diane Keaton and Christina Ricci.

EAMES: The Architect and The Painter

Husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as one of America’s most important designers. They’re probably best remembered for their obsessively collected mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, but the Eames Office also created many other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. Their personal lives and influence on major events in American life–from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age–has been less widely understood. The new documentary, Eames: The Architect and the Painter, produced by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey and narrated by James Franco, is the first film dedicated to exploring the Eames’ creative genius and work.

Eames: The Architect and the Painter opens in Los Angeles on November 18th at Laemmle Music Hall. For more information on the movie or to find playdates around the country, check out the movie’s website.
