Brewer's Sewing Machines
Brewer's Sewing Machines
Through work, I came across this small family-run shop in Wolverhampton that's celebrating 50 years’ trading this year, and being nosy I got chatting with them about the shop's history... Brewer’s Sewing Machines, on Dudley Road in Blakenhall, is owned and run by a lovely couple, Kathleen and Alan Harvey, with the help of their son Keith. The business, specialising in sewing machines, spares and repairs, was originally set up by Kath’s parents - Linda and Roland Brewer - in 1958. (Apparently Linda is celebrating her 100th birthday on Sunday (10 February 2008) with a family party, more sedate than last year’s celebrations when she took her first helicopter ride! Roland passed away in the early seventies). Kath joined the business after leaving school and when Alan married into the family he too started working for the business, earning ?3 a week. Over time Kath’s brother and sister have also worked there. When they retire Kath and Alan hope to keep the business in the family and pass it on to Keith. The business originally started in another premises on Dudley Road, but moved to this shop in 1972 after that building was demolished to make way for a major road. At one point Brewer’s expanded with two other shops, in West Bromwich and Great Bridge, but these have long since gone, as has the fleet of vans. The current building was previously occupied by the Co-op, and the Brewers made use the narrow shelving - once filled with groceries - to display sewing machines. Taking a closer look inside the shop, even the fittings for racks to hang meat in the window are still visible. At one time there were 14 sewing machine shops in Wolverhampton, now they are the only one for miles around. These were the days when Brewer’s used to sell 50-100 machines at a time, now many of the local manufacturing companies have closed. Kath described how in the past local people used to make clothes out of necessity but now many of her customers are hobbyists or schools/colleges from across the midlands. The shop also has a regular flow of local people coming in to stock up on supplies including threads and scissors. It is a sign of our times that many of Brewers’ customers are now choosing to customise clothes they have bought on the high street as it is cheaper than making them. Through textiles courses run in local schools and colleges, many young students are now having the opportunity to explore the capabilities of these modern sewing machines to create works of art using stitches. The technologically-advanced machines are virtually unrecognisable to the basic stitching machines of yesteryear, and the results very much more decorative. Kath explained how the people who use these machines now are more like artists, downloading graphics and programming their machines to sew. Brewer’s has survived by moving with the times; they even have a website to compete in an increasingly demanding marketplace. But perhaps it is Alan’s role, repairing the sewing machines, that has changed the most as he now has to carry out electronic repairs in addition to the mechanical maintenance he used to carry out in the early days. Looking through the old photo albums with Kath and Alan, it is obvious how much the business and area have changed. As one of the longest serving businesses, Brewer’s has seen Dudley Road evolve and businesses come and go. Like Brewer’s, Dudley Road has also responded to what customers want and, unlike some suburban high streets, the road is now thriving with over 70 independent shops including specialist Asian sweet, fabric and jewellery shops.
Steampunk Victrola Wood Model of The Science Fiction Verbal and Music Machine 2
Steampunk Victrola Wood Model of The Science Fiction Verbal and Music Machine 2
Instead of flat modern plate albums or Edison drums this even older classic used Verbal Cones to record sounds even outside of the normal human range. A standard item in the Library of Yor that contained tens of thousands of recordings from across time. The metal mesh of the speaker modulated the sounds to create subtleties not present in the most modern of CD equipment... This creation is about 3 3/4" high by about 3 1/4" wide (reminder there are 2 1/2 cm in an inch). Made almost 100% from wood unless stated otherwise (I sometimes use tiny amounts of other things) I use paint and many finishes, often metallic, and make sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain itself despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others ... I am told that surprisingly many do not even look like they are wood, but like metal or some manmade material... you can usually tell by the photos). Made of Wood! Part of my "Retro Tech" line ... I build a lot of different things like ray guns, robots, rocket ships, flying saucers, other machines, telescopes and more in many different formats from full size prop replicas to miniatures, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, pendants, etc ... see my main site found through my profile which has many more photos and information. I do a lot of classic looks, but am expanding into more modern and a lot of steampunk, too!

Road Trips: Vol. 1, No. 4 - From Egypt With Love
The newest installment of Road Trips, titled "From Egypt With Love", is culled from the Dead's five-night run at Winterland a month after they returned from their triumphant journey to Cairo. Each night, the band treated hometown fans to a slide-show of their travels. At two of the concerts, Hamza El Din joined the Dead for versions of "Ollin Arageed" to summon even more of the flavor of Egypt. Other special guests during the run included harmonica ace Lee Oskar (of War) and guitarist John Cipollina (of Quicksilver Messenger Service).
