Downtown Business Spotlight: Studio 11 Beautique

Published on

For this week’s business spotlight, we stopped into Studio 11 Beautique! This charming space is located at #310, 5008 50th Street (right above MC College), Red Deer. This studio offers a wide variety of aesthetic services in a very pleasant and modern setting. We sat down with Kristyn Sutherland, owner of Studio 11 to learn more!

What is your business?

Our business is basically a hub for entrepreneurs who are in the aesthetics industry. They are contracted out of Studio 11 and use this space to run their businesses. We can offer them the support they need such as marketing, technique classes, and business consulting. Our focus is to reset the industry, to move away from competition, and to concentrate on collaboration. We are looking at how we can work together to build something big.

When did your business open?

Studio 11 was previously owned and then I took over September 2019. The previous owner was working with 3 or 4 staff members and now we are up to 9.

What makes your business unique?

Our focus is collaboration over competition. We want to make sure we are there to support each other and our clients. Women in business are very popular right now and it’s important for us to show that we are an example of how we can work together.

What are some products/services that you offer?

We offer lash services including extensions, lifts, and tints. We currently have 3 nail techs for nail services, we offer spray tans and all waxing services.

Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?

I was running a home-based business in Penhold when I was approached by Studio 11.  I came here for a few personal appointments and when I decided to purchase the business, I came on secretly as a staff member. The lease on the business was up in September so I had the option of moving and going somewhere or staying. I choose to stay mainly because most of my clients are in Blackfalds, Penhold and the Lacombe area and the downtown is central to these areas. I’ve had some issues getting my clients to come downtown, but I’ve had to redirect their thoughts a little in terms of what the downtown has to offer.

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?

I can take a break and walk down to City Roast and see and experience what’s great about downtown. It is beautiful if you focus on what is beautiful about it. All the different little stores, the different people that you meet, it is unique and cultural.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… of the live music in the summertime, the outdoor patio, the great shops, and restaurants is what I love the most!

These inspiring ladies at Studio 11 are great examples of what empowering women in business Is all about! They are on the pulse of a changing industry by their unwavering support for each other and their community! Be sure to stop in and see Kristyn and her team for all your aesthetic needs!

New hand-made “Parlour” guitar features rare pre-1950’s Brazilian Rosewood

Published on

For Red Deer luthier David Gilmore, it’s really all about the wood. So he was pretty damned jazzed when fate brought him a rare piece of Brazilian Rosewood.

Gilmore has many friends in the small and exclusive world of guitar-builders.  And they tend to help each other out, swap pieces of wood, and give each other advice and encouragement.  This special piece of Brazilian Rosewood came into Gilmore’s life as a result of one of these friendships.

“I obtained this wood from Jake Peters who is an amazing luthier. Jake obtained the board back in the 80’s from an old guy who was retiring who had it in his stash for decades. According to Jake, this wood was harvested pre 1950.”

Pre-1950!  Well before the Cites treaty, which in 1992 added Brazilian Rosewood to the list and banned its export, greatly restricting the supply of this rare and coveted wood. In the case of this beautiful handmade Parlour guitar, the back, sides, fretboard, bridge, headstock, veneer and binding are all made from this one rare piece of wood.

“I was able to cut 3 complete back and side sets out of this board, and this is my last of the stash.”

This stunning guitar features a Sitka spruce top from a board that David has had squirreled for several years.

“When going through the boards, when I tapped the board, the hairs on the back of my neck stood. That was it!”

To complement the look of the iron acetate finish, Gilmore commissioned MJS Pickups out of Mississauga Ontario to make a one of a kind sound hole pick up that has a very vintage look and feel.
