    I tried to enter, but kept having something pop up claiming I’d won $1,000 and asking for lots of financial information–not from you, and not anything I trust, but it blocked me from getting to your entry page.

    It annoys me when I get an advertisement and then am expected to drive 45 miles one way to enter. I know that Brady’s sells your furniture and shop at Brady’s they are a terrific store with terrific people. But don’t lead me to believe that I can enter online and then I find out I can’t. For those of us who live in rural areas we don’t or can’t just jump in the car and go.

    Hi everyone – there is no online entry for this contest. To enter, visit your Koala Retailer (use the link in the upper right hand of this page to find your closest dealers.)

    Good luck!

    If I have to go to a store it is not possible to enter! Why advertise online if you cannot enter online!

    Yeah, there is no where to enter and I don’t have dealer within 200 miles according to their web site. So this is very close to the old bait and switch. I am making plans for a new sewing room, with all the bells and whistles. I have 24′ by 16′ open area in the basement and as long as I leave fairly easy passage into all the other areas, it is my space for sewing. That is going to take a lot of furniture. But this has just about burned me on looking further at Kaola.

    To all who have posted: I too was frustrated when I couldn’t find an
    online entry form at first. I also contacted my nearest Koala dealers and learned
    they were not participating in the drawing. Then I read the terms and conditions
    on the website which clearly state that entrants may send a postcard to their address
    indicating our specific contact info. I also sent an e-mail to the company to which
    I received a prompt, and helpful response. This is not a fishy contest, people
    actually win and their name will be posted when they do. Koala a reputable company with an
    extremely high quality line of products which are made in Chicago.
    I think the company wants potential
    customers to get into a store and see their sewing furniture in person, something
    I couldn’t fully appreciate until seeing their pieces myself. So yes, this contest may involve a
    bit more effort to enter, but if you are lucky enough to win,
    you will be getting something
    very special.
