The Koala Studio Advantage

No Comments

Do you know the difference between a sewing cabinet and  Koala Studio?

A cabinet, by definition, is an upright cupboard-like repository with shelves, drawers or compartments, for storing or displaying objects.

A studio, by definition, is an artist’s place of work.

Koala has two booths at Paducah.  One is in the big tent, the other is in Eleanor Burns’ barn in Carson Park at 28th and Madison in Paducah. Click here for a map of these locations.

The producers of the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah have posted a special announcement on their website regarding the relocation of some events due to flooding. Read below for a description of where things will be moved.

April 25, 2011, Paducah, Ky., – Due to high water along the lower Ohio River at Paducah, the floodgates that protect the city are being installed. To protect the safety of visitors to the American Quilter’s Society annual Quilt Show & Contest, events usually held at the Paducah-McCracken County Expo and Julian C. Carroll Convention Center have been moved.

Best of Show, category winners, and bed quilts will be on display at the Pavilion at the corner of 4th Street and Executive Boulevard. Vendors that were in the Expo Center will be there, too.

At Kentucky Oaks Mall, 3470 James Sanders Boulevard, The Alliance for American Quilts display will be at Circuit City. The Pilgrim/Roy 2012 Challenge display and AQS Lancaster 2011 winners will be at Office Max, also at the mall. Vendors that were in the convention center will be located at Circuit City. Vendors that were in the Pavilion will be at Office Max.

All classes and lectures and All Star Review will be held at First Baptist Church, 2890 Broadway, where the Wall Quilt contest and winners will be displayed.

The Food Tent will relocate just two blocks to the Farmers Market located behind the museum at the T-intersection of 2nd Street and Monroe. As always, there will be Vendors on Kentucky at 200 Kentucky Avenue, also known as the Finkel Building, and the Hurt Book Sale.

Events planned for Carson Four Rivers Center and The National Quilt Museum will continue in place. The Yo Yo ladies, Live Auction, and Silent Auction will be at The National Quilt Museum. Shuttles will run between all venues so visiting quilters may travel safely. A little water can’t stop the 2011 AQS Quilt Show in Paducah. Come see us!

Candace L. from Elk Grove, CA showed us that having a Koala Studio in her sewing room that doubles as a  guest bedroom actually helps keep things organized and free of clutter so there is no need to scramble when guest are coming to stay. Thank you for sharing your studio Candice!  Visit Share Your Studio to upload a photo of your home studio, view other studio submissions and vote for your favorites.

If you have ever been to a Sewing Weekend at Nancy’s Notions before you know that sewers from all over the country flock to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin and simply take over the town for three days. You could call it painting the town thread.  It is a weekend packed full of learning, mingling, and shopping with a group that is sure to share your interests in all things sewing. Make sure to register if you haven’t already and swing by the Koala booth while you’re there and meet Koala’s lead designer Eddy Moore (pictured).
