    I would be happy with any one of them, especially as we are planning on downsizing

    Like the lift functions and the level sewing surface. I wonder if I could keep my stuff that neat!
    Enjoy the newly reorganized space. I still review your class.

    Aaaaah Jenny. That is such a beautiful studio. You deserve it girl. I am about to retire in 2 1/2 weeks from teaching computer applications to high school students and so looking forward to teaching my nieces my favorite craft: sewing and quilting. A studio like yours is a dream come true for so many of us, but my 6 x 8 room works. Just might have to move into the kitchen. 🙂

    I was fortunate to be there while they were working on installing the furniture. Beautiful cabinets and Jenny is as friendly in person as on video! Fun to see it finished and staged.

    Jenny — you could sell beach front property in Arizona — I absolutley love your descriptions of your room, I love how you teach quilting, sewing, etc., with simple language and a sincere smile. I knew the first time I saw you that your passion is fabric. The studio? OH MY GOSH — beautiful and absolutely perfect for you!! Love it … have to ask — do you still have a barber pole outside? 😉

    Oh Jenny! that is beautiful & I love the color of wood & the walls!! I couldn’t do a lot of the quilts I do without your videos! Love love love you!
    I have a 20 X 20 studio that my husband made for me. He built an 8×8 table in the middle(two 4×8 tables pushed together that I can rearrange if I wish) with cutting area, built in rulers, cutting groove, ironing station, ‘sunken’ sewing machine station, big roll batting storage, peg board for my rotary cutters, rulers & accoutrements & lots of other storage underneath too! I can take the ironing boards(two 4’X2′ ones we made) & my cutting mats off & have plenty of room to lay out & baste my quilts. He is awesome! I don’t have a remote cabinet from Koala, but I DO have the worlds best hubby ❤.

    I love you Jenny, you don’t know how much you have helped me learn to quilt. I have watched all of your videos. I am so happy for you that you have this beautiful new Koala Studio to work in, you must feel like a princess.

    I love your new studio – Koala has beautiful cabinets. I love the way you teach – in a way that I can understand. Your videos are wonderful. Thank you.
    I too have a small sewing room so I end up using the kitchen and dining room (former living room) but when I have company it all gets tossed back into my sewing room. One day I will have a Koala studio to enjoy.

    I’m downright jealous! Sounds terrible, but I wish I had a Koala studio. I am smitten with the remote lifting of the sewing machine. Ay caramba, i wish I were living in the US right now!

    Your Studio is awesome!! I have a Koala Machine storage cabinet — but would one day like to have a complete set of tables and cabinets for all my quilting and craft supplies. Koala products are made to last and with the quilter in mind. My room is small but one day could use a makeover. I will surely have to save up and purchase more of the Koala cabinet line.

    Loving the new studio; you’ve come a long way in just a short time. It’s fun to compare the “then” and “now” pics of the way MSQC began isn’t it, and now you have a dream come true. Looking forward to the next generation of quilting tutorials in your new home.

    Oh, my! How awesome. Absolutely beautiful furniture and so practical. I have just one corner of my bedroom for sewing, which I love, but your studio is amazing! Thanks for all the great tutorials. You are a great teacher!

    I wanted to let you know, my quilting guru brought me to Hamilton last year. I love how you and your family have helped this town strive and come back to life. I am originally from K.C. and now live in Texas, and when I travel back there I will always make a stop in your STORES. Someday I hope to attend a quilting retreat there. I enjoyed going to all your different stores and love the way the fabrics are divided up in each store. I also subscribe to “The Block” and enjoy it very much. I wish you more happy years in Hamilton.
