A Tour Of Brother’s Head Office (Video)
You know Brother. They’re the Japanese company behind great printers, great sewing machines, and that amazing ScanNCut machine. (Seriously! Have you played with that thing? It’s on my Christmas wish list every year! Hello, Santa…)
I’m doing some exciting things with Brother over the next few months that I can’t wait to share with you. Videos, events, projects. Lots of good stuff!
To kick things off, Brother invited me to their head office in Montreal to have a tour through the facility. I got to spend a day playing with their newest machines (I love my job!), plus I got to walk through their warehouse, talk about collaborations with their marketing team, and see behind-the-scenes in their customer care department.
Side note: Everyone was so nice!!! They were playing games in the customer care department and showing me music video competitions from past Christmas parties. I’ve been using Brother products for a long time, and have always been a fan of the quality of their sewing machines, so to see such joy in the people behind the brand made me love their products even more!
Hi, everyone. I’m in Montreal today at the Brother head office. I’ve been sewing with and using Brother sewing machines for a really long time; I absolutely love them. I’m here at their head office today to have a look around and I thought you’d like to join me. Come on. Let’s go.
Oh, good morning.

Associate Product Manager, Christine:
Hi, welcome to Brother. I’m Christine and I’m on the product management team for our sewing and embroidery machines here at Brother. I would like to go through some of our machines with you today.
Here we have our PRS100. So this is our professional embroidery series machine; where it does embroidery only and you can add beautiful creations to your clothing or a pillow at home.
Over here we have our beautiful Dream Machine. So this is the XV8500D and it’s just the most technologically advanced machine on the market; it scans, it has camera function. So, just a lot of fun features for everyone to try out.
Then we have our Q Series over here. So, this is our NQ3500D and it’s a combination machine where it does embroidery and sewing. These are our Quilting Series; where it’s our NQ900 and our NQ700. And these are really great if you’re into quilting or just sewing; the sewing experience is just amazing.
Thank you very much.

So, that’s a wrap everyone. Thank you so much for joining me today. I’m so glad you got to come around and see the inside of Brother’s headquarters with me. I’ll be sharing lots of exciting news about Brother’s sewing machines and embroidery machines, so stay tuned.
