SAVE Stores is honored to be chosen as a Brother Royal Club Member for over 15 straight years!!!  SAVE Stores is the largest Brother retailer in Oregon and Southwest Washington.  If phenomenal sewing, embroidery performance, and the best warranty in the industry are what you want, then with Brother Innov'is line of sewing and embroidery machines, you've found your perfect match.


With a rich history spanning more than a century, Brother has grown from humble beginnings into a diversified multinational corporation. While its technology and business activities have evolved over time, a foundation of strong leadership and product innovation has remained a constant throughout Brother's history and remains just as important today as it was in 1908.

Spirit of Establishment

Yasui Sewing Machine Co., a company that sold and repaired sewing machines, was established in 1908 by Kanekichi Yasui, the father of the founders of Brother Industries, Ltd.

Masayoshi Yasui, the eldest of ten children, began helping his father at the age of nine, and at 17 he began working as an apprentice in Osaka. With the sewing machine market at that time dominated by imported products, Masayoshi was determined to "develop this import-based sewing machine industry into an export-based industry" by introducing domestic production.

Brother Creativity

While a lack of production facilities and advanced processing technologies led many to believe it was impossible to produce sewing machines in Japan, Masayoshi's resolution never wavered. He started developing and selling hydraulic presses to produce straw hats, while at the same time carrying out research on sewing machine manufacturing.

Brother Perseverance

The research paid off when Jitsuichi Yasui, Masayoshi's younger brother and co-founder of Brother, succeeded in developing shuttle hooks, a main component of sewing machines. In 1932, the Yasui brothers successfully introduced the first sewing machine made entirely in Japan. Hence the name "Brother" (Sister was unavailable...LOL; ).
