    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears as if some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

    I Love my sewing studio /room but really need help to finish making it efficient and well organized. I started and had to have knee surgery and now I’m at a stalemate. Need a side shelf or a way to fit craft supplies under the cutting table. I have a plan in my head but can’t seem to finish. So it’s a UFSSIP.. Unfinished sewing studio in progress.
    Sincerely Darla Rumelhart

    Like most of us, I rarely win, but this win would be a dream come true. My studio (called THE ROOM) is a large partially finished basement room that I’ve worked on for several years. I’ve hand painted quilts on the walls, hung hooks & rope from the ceiling (since the walls are cement) to hang my design wall, bulletin boards, wish list & peg boards. My next project will be to paint the floor with stencils of my 17 grandchildren’s & 14 great grandchildren’s names. I have 2 six foot folding tables that I sew & cut on. To add tried & true REAL furniture would be all I could hope for to complete my creative space.

    I love beautifully made furniture and Koala would certainly add a classic touch to my sewing room. What a prize.

    I just finished transferring all my fabric and quilting supplies to my extra bedroom, took out the closet to open it up and need more finishing touches. Wouldn’t the Koala furniture be an added plus!?

    Beautiful line of quality furniture that would be the ultimate enhancement to a sewing studio.

    We just made an offer on a new home with a huge room that will be my first sewing “studio!” No more cutting on the dining room table! A door I can close to hide my clutter! I have a 10 year-old Koala Outback sewing cabinet and craft table. They are nice, but I would love the new beveled edges and an automatic lift. I am working on my wish list!

    I could really use a Koala furniture area for sewing.

    My corner of the family room has been adequate for the piecing I do. Then I had to take a Beyond Meandering Quilting Class! Now there are more possibilities, and of course more area to expand to! A studio layout would help make this awakened quilter stretch her comfort zone.

    I would love to win a Koala furniture & the rest of the prizes, for it would be a dream come true & an answer to prayers. My sewing table is about ready to collapse & fall apart. I died 8 years ago & went to Heaven & was told to go back that it was not my time to come, so now I make quilts & for cancer patients, Men & Women of Valor, Women & Children in Crisis, as well as Birthright. So to be able to win, would make my quilting for causes a lot simpler. Thanks for the opportunity for the chance to win.

    I have an extra bedroom that serves as my craft studio. I have a large table to sew on and a lot of plastic drawers and tubs for storage. More organization would be great!

    I am interested in a Koala studio built with one or two separate pieces of furniture. My goal is to have either pneumatic or electric lifts to raise and stow my sewing machine and serger.
    Could you please send me you latest catalog with th options available to me?
    Ideally, I’d lie to take advantage of the height of my ceiling, and incorporate an Amoire piece of furniture into the sewing and storage studio. The additional piece would have Castro’s with drop leaves to maximize surface work space.
    Thank you,
