Koala Studios Embroidery Hoop Closet

Comments Off on Koala Studios Embroidery Hoop Closet

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


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.”

Meet Our Holiday Sweepstakes Winner


Sewing rooms come in all shapes and sizes. Some people sew on their dining room table; others dedicate a portion of their house to the hobby they love. Suzanne W. of Washington D.C. is a self-proclaimed textile lover with sewing supplies scattered throughout four separate rooms. Despite having multiple rooms, she still could use something to help her merge her sewing supplies and stay organized. As the 2014 Koala Holiday Sweepstakes winner, Waple can use her new Koala Small StorageCenter to spruce up her sewing space.

Koala Studios Holiday Sweepstakes: Small Storage Center

Suzanne was born and raised on the East Coast and spent 20 years in New York City. While there, she spent a lot of time in the New York Fashion District and soon accumulated a lot of fabric. “As most textile lovers do, I accumulated many beautiful lengths of fabric over the years,” Suzanne said. “Thanks to the web, I continue to shop my favorite NYC fabric houses—there’s always something new!”

Suzanne is an avid garment sewer, and uses many types of fabrics for her projects. She has been sewing since she was a young girl, and by the time she “officially learned” in home-ec class, she already had impressive skills. “I tend to have multiple projects in play all the time, meaning that while I’m physically sewing one garment, the next few are already planned out in my mind. The most satisfying part of a project for me is finding a piece of exquisite fabric and envisioning the possibilities for it.” Suzanne currently has two projects on her plate. The first is a pair of charcoal cashmere wool pants, and the second is a coat from ivory silk fleece. With new projects always on her mind, fabric takes up a lot of her sewing space.

Notions and machines take up some space, too. In fact, she currently uses her dining room table as both a home for her serger and a cutting table. Now that she’ll have the Koala StorageCenter, Suzanne hopes to change some things a bit. “I plan to use it to consolidate my notions and as a base for my serger. Currently, I have some notions in the basement and my home office. The serger is on the dining table which also doubles as my cutting table.” By moving the serger, Suzanne can now easily convert her table from cutting table to dining room table.

Although the StorageCenter will be Suzanne’s first piece of Koala furniture, it will easily match her other home décor. She gets to choose the finish of her choice. When she’s ready to organize the rest of her supplies, she can then visit her Koala Retailer at G Street Fabrics to choose complementary pieces.

Introducing the New XL Lift


Koala Studios is excited to introduce the new XL Lift, designed to provide the support and power required to lift today’s largest and heaviest machines.

Koala Studios: Introducing the New XL Lift

Powered by dual motors, the XL Lift features a rack and pinion direct drive system.

-The XL Lift is rKoala Studios: XL Liftecommended as an additional accessory for machines measuring between 22 and 27 inches wide and/or weighing more than 50 pounds.

-The XL Lift is an available accessory option for the SewMate Plus IV, TreasureChest Plus IV, QuiltMatePlus IV, DualMate Plus IV (right lift only), and the BERNINA Studio.

-The XL Lift cannot be added to an existing Koala Studio. The Baby Lock Destiny and Brother Dream Machine do not fit cabinets with a G3 Lift as designed or recommended, but if you wish to use your existing Koala cabinet, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The standard G3 Lift will support the weight of the machine in the top position with the machine platform level with the Studio’s top surface.
  • The G3 Lift can raise and lower these machines from the stored position, but the power cords should be disconnected and removed while operating the lift. It’s a tight fit, so please ensure that the machine has clearance around it.
  • Using these machine in the flatbed position with a traditional Machine Insert is not possible. However, the machine can be raised slightly and used with a modified Custom Insert that would rest on the Studio surface.  Your Koala Retailer can order this “modified” insert for you.

-If you are thinking about purchasing a new Koala Studio and don’t have one of these larger machines, but plan to purchase one in the future, it is highly recommended to add the XL Lift. Once the Studio is made with the standard G3 Lift it cannot be retrofitted for the XL Lift.

-Koala retailers will begin taking orders on Studios with XL Lifts on October 1st, and the Studios will begin shipping in November.  The XL lift option will be added to the Sewing and Craft Club soon.

Koala Studios: Introducing the New XL Lift

As sewing machine technology gets bigger and better, Koala continues to lead in innovative sewing furniture design. If you have additional questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments or contact your local Koala Studios retailer.
