    This would truly be a dream come true. My sewing table is a 1930s office table desk with two small drawers. Would love to be more organized. I can hope.

    I would love to enter this competition, but as I live in Scotland I can’t 🙁
    As my two youngest have just flown the coup, I am in the process of converting one of their rooms in to a craft room and a good storage unit is hard to find. Oh well, guess I will have to save my pennies and buy one now.

    I have outgrown the corner of our Master Bedroom that I use for my sewing area and will soon be moving my quilting to a basement room. The Koala Studio pieces would be “sew” helpful in keeping me organized in a fairly small space.

    About 5 years ago I had kitchen cabinetry installed, to give me more organized space & while I love the look & it’s rather pretty, it’s not specialized storage – designed with sewing, quilting, embroidering & crafting in mind! It would be so dreamy to have my sewing room properly designed!

    I would love the have a sewing table for my sewing machine. These products look to be very effective, efficient workspaces. I believe that I could get alot more done and enjoy it more while doing it with such great products. How enjoyable it would be to have defined space for sewing and all the items (cloth, tools, machines) that are necessary to complete a project.

    I’m almost afraid to enter the contest! I love the Koala furniture so much, and don’t want to get my hopes up that I might win, only to have them dashed when I don’t. I do keep saving and saving,and am in the process of turning our loft into my sewing studio, so nice storage furniture would be such a plus! The loft is visible from the living room downstairs, so I’d really like to keep it looking somewhat organized (there are limits for a person like me!). I can’t find a nice way to wish you all good luck, when what I really want is for me to win instead of you! 🙂

    I love my Koala cabinets — but I’ve run out of storage space for all the accessories that go with my embroidery machines and serger. With a sewing machine in the bottom of the closet, it would be great to be able to have it out all the time with the other machines. Thanks for designing furniture so handy for sewing and crafts.

    Having an organized sewing and crafts space is a dream come true. Why are US protectorates always left out of the contests I want and need to win?? I plan to keep on checking…someday soon it will happen!!!

    It would be wonderful to be organized in this beautiful Koala furniture designed for sewing needs. I’ll be 69 years young in June. Sewing, ME, and teaching at my neighborhood sewing & quilt store are my passion.

    Oh, we have been busy this month setting up my dream craft room. I purchased 3 beautiful koala cabinets at Baker FL at a recent sewing show. Guess what?!? Three cabinets are not enough. I would love to get rid of some more of my plastic storage bins. It would be fabulous to win one of the additional new cabinets. I am so impressed with the beauty, quality, storage availablity, and ease of use that my cabinets provide. Thank you for creating a wonderful product.

    How about an updated contest to win a sewing room makeover?????
    I have an area over my 2- car garage that would make a great sewing/ craft room. At 68 years young and finally retired (well I still work an on- call job for some extra money to help me with my sewing/craft addiction). What a challenge it would be to have this room created! To have it published in my local newspaper and news channel would also give your company additional publicity.
    I love to make quilts, big ones, small mini ones, wall hangings also love to create gifts, cards,pins whatever and how I coukd use this “Dream Magic Room” for my creative talents. I want so to teach young girls in an orphan home how to quilt and to have thisroom would surely make it easy.
    Any help you can offer me with request would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you

    Your furniture is wonderful. Our local dealer has it and I am slowly saving for my purchase. It would be fabulous to have a sewing cabinet for my sewing room. The entry form does not seem to be working for me.
