No Comments

Among the many design advantages featured on our Koala Studios, the Embroidery Hoop Closets are essential for embroiders of all levels. We have two different sizes of Embroidery Hoop Closets, the “Standard” and “Artisan” hoop closets.

Artisan Hoop Closet

Artisan Hoop Closet

The “Artisan” hoop closet only fits in the Artisan Studio and is included as a standard feature of the base model Artisan studio. In addition to storing a variety of hoops, the Artisan hoop closet provides limited space for stabilizer storage.

Standard Hoop Closet

Standard Hoop Closet

The “Standard” embroidery hoop closet may be added as an optional accessory at the time of order on the QuiltMate, QuiltPro, DualMate, SewMate, TreasureChest, and Bernina Studios when equipped with the “Standard” machine lift.  The “Standard” embroidery hoop closet cannot be added as an accessory to these listed models when ordered along with  XL Lift option. The “Standard” embroidery hoop closet may also be added to the Storage Center and Small Storage Centers.

If you are unsure if this can be added to the model of your choice, please contact your local Koala Retailer for help in customizing your studio.

 

 

Meet the Latest Koala Sweepstakes Winner

3 Comments

While most people are still snug in their beds, hours away from rising for the day, Marilyn N. of Vancouver, Wash., is often at one or more of her five sewing, serger and quilting machines, plying her craft.

“Sometimes I’m up at 3 a.m.,” she says. “It’s my quiet time. I have a quilting buddy who lives 3 miles away and sometimes she’ll call me up at 5 and say, ‘I just made tea – want to come over?’ So a few of us have kind of a little quilting club.”

Koala Studios: Reclaim Your Sewing Room Sweepstakes

Marilyn N. is the lucky winner of a RollAbout Plus IV with Outback Leaf Extension and Top Drawer in-home delivery in the Koala Studios Reclaim Your Sewing Room random-drawing sweepstakes. “I couldn’t believe I’d won,” she says. “My friends are so jealous. I’m sure everyone would love to have it.”

A native of California, Marilyn started sewing on an old treadle machine at just 10 years old, and then saved up enough babysitting money to buy her first machine a couple of years later. At 20, she took up quilting, and a whole new world of sewing opened up to her. All through college and marriage, kids, and a career that at one point included hat-making, she sewed on the side, gravitating toward Ann Shaw patterns and designing her own quilts. Now a spry 71-year-old widow, she’s contemplating a new phase of life.

“Basically, I spend my day buying fabric and sewing. I’m up early and I’ve often put in 12 hours of sewing in a day,” she says. “I give quilts to [friends and relatives], but I haven’t ruled out starting a business. In the meantime, I have so much of my own stuff to catch up on.”

Her new, attractive Koala Studios RollAbout Plus IV should make that task easier. The unit will likely replace older cabinetry in her home and help her reign in some of the many thread spools, instruction books and catalogues that have no other place to go. And, she’ll be happy to gain valuable surface area for piecing together her masterworks.

“If I have to hang it from the ceiling, I will,” she says. “Right now, I’m spread out; sometimes I’m using the kitchen island. It’ll be good to get rid of the clutter.”
