Eclectic House adds aprons and kitchen accessories by Cooking with Style

Loveland resident Rosario Medina has started selling her aprons and kitchen accessories at the Eclectic House artisan market, 528 N. Cleveland Ave.

Medina’s business, Cooking with Style, or Cociando con Estilo, has been in operation for about a year on its Facebook page, facebook.com/Cocinando-con-estilo-694019817445190, according to Medina’s daughter, Karina Ledez.

Medina opened a booth at the Eclectic House in March.

“She makes anything — accessories for your kitchen from curtains to aprons to the little towels that hang on your oven door. She makes them into dresses,” Ledez said.

Medina can sew aprons for men, women or children; she also makes waterproof ones for restaurant dishwashers and can personalize an apron with a company logo, accents or jewels, her daughter said.

Aprons start at $15 for adults and $7 for children, and a matched set of apron, hand towel and potholder runs $25, she said.

To contact Medina, call 970-820-7991. The Eclectic House, which is open Tuesday through Sunday, can be reached at 970-667-2499.

New Centerra hotel will be a Courtyard by Marriott

Loveland developer McWhinney and hotel operator Stonebridge Cos. announced Wednesday that the 101-room hotel that McWhinney has said it will build in Centerra will be a Courtyard by Marriott.

Crews will break ground in June on the hotel, according to a press release from McWhinney. The four-story hotel will be built on a 26-acre site northwest of the intersection of U.S. 34 and Centerra Parkway.

The location originally was to hold Bass Pro Shops, a Courtyard by Marriott hotel and several restaurant and retail pads, but after Bass Pro pulled out in 2015, McWhinney was silent until recently about what would go there.

The hotel will have a bistro and lounge, about 1,200 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, market, pool and hot tub, the release said.

Stonebridge, of Centennial, has more than 45 hotels across the country, the release said, including the Fairfield Inn and Hampton Inn, both in Loveland.

Fort Collins extends deadline for innovation grants

Organizers of an innovation challenge issued by the city of Fort Collins have extended the deadline for submissions, according to an announcement released Thursday.

According to the announcement, 58 applications seeking $5.5 million have been filed in the city’s first “Innovate Fort Collins Challenge.” Judges will fund the projects capable of achieving carbon reductions in energy, transportation and waste materials. Projects could focus on applications of new or existing technologies; behavior change; new business models; or new public-private partnerships, with grants of up to $250,000 available.

Because of the response from the public, the deadline for submissions for the grants has been moved from April 28 to June 2, with the public pitch night being moved to Aug. 3.

“Response from the community has been exciting and encouraging,” said Katy Bigner, Environmental Planner with the Environmental Services department. “We’re excited to see the final proposals.”

For more information on the Challenge, go to www.fcgov.com/innovate.
