Gregor grew up in the sewing machine business--his father owned two stores on the west side of the state, and he's had this shop for thirteen years. Despite the name, he's not tied to the Singer brand anymore; he also sells Juki machines. For years, he says, Juki has been making most Singer machines anyway. Singer, says Gregor, closed its last factory a few years ago, around the time it was taken private and combined with Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff into a company called SVP Worldwide.
