Barb with Dan, owner of The Sewing Machine Shop
A huge congratulations goes out once again to Barb S. for winning our Holiday Giveaway! Here’s what Barb has to say about winning a Creative Gallery Wall System:
“Oh my goodness, I’m so excited! What an honor to win this beautiful Creative Gallery Wall System. I’ve long admired the beauty, function, and quality of Koala cabinets and can hardly believe I will soon be the owner of this Koala wall system! I didn’t expect to win when I submitted the entry; my husband and I have been filling out entries for years with no result. So, what a surprise to get the phone call from a Koala representative telling me I’d won! I was pretty much speechless at first; the last time I won anything was 39 years ago when I won a camp stove at the grand opening of a sporting goods store in Berkeley, CA, so I wasn’t prepared with a fitting response. Instead I kept repeating, “what?” I think the representative with whom I was speaking began to wonder if she’d gotten the wrong number since, after about the 5th “what” she asked me if I’d submitted an entry at The Sewing Machine Shop in Walnut Creek, CA. At that point, reality set in and I realized what she was saying, and I was ecstatic!
Sewing is my passion, and my sewing room is my sanctuary. The addition of this beautiful cabinet to my sewing room will make the experience all the more special to me for years to come. And what a great segue to a new adventure— I’ve always wanted to make a big quilt. Last year in a class with Linda [of The Sewing Machine Shop] I learned paper piecing doing the New York Beauty quilt pattern. Gorgeous! I have 13 squares (of 40 some odd) completed and look forward to hanging out at The Sewing Machine Shop drop-ins to finish it so I can hang it on my new Wall System!
2013 is starting very nicely! I am grateful to everyone at The Sewing Machine Shop who made participation in this drawing a possibility (and for the great classes, advice, guidance, support, inventory….), and to Koala for the giveaway and for making such awesome product.”
