Check out James’ Koala Studio!
James M. from Chatsworth, CA recently uploaded his Koala Studio to our Share Your Studio Gallery, and we were so impressed that we wanted to feature it on our blog! James was able to fit three Koala cabinets into a small 11′x10′ space, which allowed for big style and even more functionality.
No matter the size of your space, there is a Koala cabinet that’s a perfect fit. It’s easy to plan out your room with our online room planner where you can easily create a floor plan that has the same dimensions and features of the space in your home.
We recreated James’ studio with our room planner to show you how easy it is to plan out your sewing studio, even if it’s a small space. Have a similar sized studio as James does? Click here to rearrange and customize his plan to fit your space’s needs
Meet Barb, Our Holiday Giveaway Winner
A huge congratulations goes out once again to Barb S. for winning our Holiday Giveaway! Here’s what Barb has to say about winning a Creative Gallery Wall System:
“Oh my goodness, I’m so excited! What an honor to win this beautiful Creative Gallery Wall System. I’ve long admired the beauty, function, and quality of Koala cabinets and can hardly believe I will soon be the owner of this Koala wall system! I didn’t expect to win when I submitted the entry; my husband and I have been filling out entries for years with no result. So, what a surprise to get the phone call from a Koala representative telling me I’d won! I was pretty much speechless at first; the last time I won anything was 39 years ago when I won a camp stove at the grand opening of a sporting goods store in Berkeley, CA, so I wasn’t prepared with a fitting response. Instead I kept repeating, “what?” I think the representative with whom I was speaking began to wonder if she’d gotten the wrong number since, after about the 5th “what” she asked me if I’d submitted an entry at The Sewing Machine Shop in Walnut Creek, CA. At that point, reality set in and I realized what she was saying, and I was ecstatic!
Sewing is my passion, and my sewing room is my sanctuary. The addition of this beautiful cabinet to my sewing room will make the experience all the more special to me for years to come. And what a great segue to a new adventure— I’ve always wanted to make a big quilt. Last year in a class with Linda [of The Sewing Machine Shop] I learned paper piecing doing the New York Beauty quilt pattern. Gorgeous! I have 13 squares (of 40 some odd) completed and look forward to hanging out at The Sewing Machine Shop drop-ins to finish it so I can hang it on my new Wall System!
2013 is starting very nicely! I am grateful to everyone at The Sewing Machine Shop who made participation in this drawing a possibility (and for the great classes, advice, guidance, support, inventory….), and to Koala for the giveaway and for making such awesome product.”
Barb resides in Danville, CA and entered the giveaway at The Sewing Machine Shop, her local Koala retailer. The Sewing Machine shop is located in Walnut Creek, CA and serves many of the San Francisco Bay area cities. Learn more about their shop here.
