In the last fifteen years, the sewing machine industry has been enlivened and revolutionized by computers. In 1995, Singer came out with a machine that could be hooked up to your home computer to sew computer-generated designs. "Today, it's wireless, so you can have a computer in one room and a sewing machine in the other," says Gregor. "You can scan in a photo, and the machine will embroider it." He sells sewing machines, old and new, for $100 to $5,000.

Singer Sewing Shoppe, 605 S. Maple. 332-7311. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Closed Sun. www.singersewingshoppe.com




When empty storefronts go begging at Briarwood this time of year, the shopping center offers deals on short-term leases to stores that specialize in seasonal merchandise. "It adds interest to the mall and keeps the center full," says general manager Ida Hendrix.
