    I’ve been trying to put together a functional sewing room since I was discharged from the U.S.Navy. I’ve been a sewer since I was 8yrs old. This organizational Koala would really help especially for my quilt making!

    I had the opportunity to work (nights and weekends) at a Viking dealership in Duluth, GA (northern suburb of Atlanta). They had a Koala station in the display area of the dealership and I was encouraged to use it (carefully of course) as I worked on projects to be put out for demonstration when I was between sales opportunities. I had many people stop by and examine the cabinet.

    I LOVED the quality of construction, the space it afforded when in use as well as the compact footprint it afforded when not in use.

    I would LOVE to be entered in this contact. this would be a terrific prize for anyone from novice to the most experienced sewer!

    I have a dedicated sewing room that my husband built in the basement. I have a beautiful cutting table, but have to use that for my sewing and embroidery machines. I am constantly having to move something so I can use my machine or do flat work. Storage is at a premium and I have no free space to leave something that is partially finished. I know that the Koala Studio System could solve my problems and help me work more efficiently.

    We recently moved into a smaller home in SC, and I “share” my sewing room with our guest room. The Koala studio system would be perfect for me to organize my quilting supplies and be able to sew quilts for different charities that I am involved with. At the present time, I run downstairs to cut fabric on the kitchen table, so the Koala system would be ideal and a dream come true!

    A Koala cabinet has been in my dreams for at least 20 years. My mother taught me to hand sew at 4yrs. of age and I’ve been sewing ever since. My 8 grandchildren always need something and I make lap quilts for shut-ins. 3 years ago when we retired and moved south I got the room of my dreams and now it needs to be organized!

    I am changing my sewing room from one room to another because I don’t have any storage in the present and my husband is going to build me a storage area is the room I’m moving to. I sure would love to win this has I would never be able to afford anything this elaborate. I love to sew and quilt, but I had to retire from my work because of the big C disease and I’m on limited income, also my hubby too had to retire early because of illness. I was taught to sew by my grandmother at an early age, and because of my situation that is mostly my only enjoyment, it helps me to concentrate and blocks my pains. I quilt, and do alterations for friends, this helps me to purchase my materials. I do have an old sewing desk, that I purchased used, it must be around thirty years old or more and fortunately I had purchased a good sewing machine while I was working, therefore I would really appreciate winning something that I would definitely use and enjoy, because even though my husband is going to build my a storage cabinet, he is not a carpenter, but I will appreciate what ever he can build.

    Life changes as you get older but sewing is one thing that last forever. Relaxation, fun, excitement are just of the few things I love about sewing. I am starting a new adventure in sewing, with all my fabrics I am going to sew clothes for needy children in the United States. I am so excited. Organization would certainly be helpful. I would love to win any of these prizes to help with the organization of my sewing room. It is exciting just to register to win.

    A unit like this would be wonderful to organize all my sewing essentials in one place which are in storage containers all over the house and basement. When I want to work on something I have to hunt for where I’ve stored certain items that I need for particular projects..
