Ahead of the recent Cameo 4 Launch Party, I toured the Silhouette America headquarters in Lindon, Utah. Before you think about trying to do that yourself, you should know that it’s not a regular occurrence. I’m a member of Silhouette Elite, which is a group of bloggers, teachers and retailers chosen by Silhouette America. It was we, along with designers from the Silhouette Design Store, who were invited for the tour. But have no fear! I took as many pictures as we were allowed to take and I thought you’d like to see a bit of what the “mothership” looks like. (Sorry the pics are’t great — I just had my old iPhone with me).
This is our tour group in the entry area. From left to right are Melissa Viscount (Silhouette School), JD Place, Rachel Place (designer Sweet Elsie), Spencer Livingston (Silhouette America’s VP of sales), Jen Gallacher (designer, blogger, author, teacher), Sarah Cannon (Silhouette America’s Sales Promotions Manager), Ken Hess (Ken’s Kreations blogger/product reviewer), 3 people whose names I can’t remember, me, Sierra Dungan (Silhouette America’s Web Sales Assistant/Graphic Designer) and Alison Gomez (Silhouette America’s Influencer Marketing Coordinator).
These is the “Machine Evolution” wall with most of the machines (The Portrait is missing). They are (left to right): Original QuicKutz machine, SD, Cameo 1 on the top row, Cameo 2, Cameo 3, Cameo 4 on the bottom row.
In that same room is a cabinet of samples.
And a cabinet with all the materials Silhouette makes.
This is the video studio room. You may recognize Rebecca Hansen, who does the videos for Silhouette America. The gentleman with her is Brian Makano, the man behind the camera.
That’s all the areas we were allowed to photograph, so that’s all for today!
