      I tried to register in the contest, but couldn’t get past the typing of numbers/letters at the bottom. I must have typed 20-30 times–correctly–but couldn’t get through to the submit. Any ideas?
      I’d like to enter. Thanks.

    Have watched video 4X but no sign of entry form. Where is it? Have read other comments and am obviously not the only one having trouble. Not a good way to encourage new customers, Koala. Also, the CAPTCHA code should precede the “Submit Comment” space. Who designed this presentation?

    It took me 3 viewings (not that I minded, but then I had to clean up the drool from my keyboard) but I finally got to the entry form. Any of the storage units would be wonderful additions to my sewing space! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

    Beautifully designed storage pieces. My craft/sewing room is bulging at the seams and any one of these pieces would go a long way toward organizing my small space.

    Gosh, your furniture is so beautiful yet functional. I have been using my childhood desk for my sewing machine for more than 40 years and would love to have the opportunity to have real sewing furniture. Right now my “sewing room” is a small closet porch I share with my husband’s exercise equipment. Our last house I had a “sewing room” in the basement that I shared with my husband’s motorcycle. As a retired Home Economics teacher whose children are finally leaving the nest, I am planning to use a bedroom to finally have a true “sewing room.” Having the correct furnishings would fulfill a lifelong dream since I spend a significant time sewing especially with extreme year-around allergies which forces me to stay inside most of the year. Koala cabinets are designed for the devoted hobbyist and/or professional for ultimate organization. An added bonus is that they are “Made in America,” a principle I try to ascribe to especially when we are also planning to remodel our kitchen and bathrooms. I would be honored if you selected me to have one or more of your beautiful cabinets for my home.

    Koala keeps providing high quality products and awesome organizational concepts in furniture. I love how the storage units and cabinets fit in small spaces but provide ample storage space for any room. I love your products and would display any of them proudly if selected as a winner.

    A wonderful piece of work and one I would so enjoy winning. I don’t have much room (my sewing, crafts, and everything else) is packed in my bedroom. I have a small corner for sewing and this cabinet would look and fit in that little corner. Like everyone else, will keep my fingers crossed too!!

    Oh my goodness, it would feel like I was a kid again having the anticipation of waiting for Christmas Day, the arrival of a baby brother or sister, Daddy coming home from work etc., etc. Any one of these storage units would be pure heaven, I can only hope and pray.

    I live in a small mobile home and the Small Storage Center would be perfect. My living room is also my sewing room and needless to say it’s difficult to keep everything organized. I use my kitchen table to cut fabric and for my embroidery machine. My sewing machine and serger take turns on a small table in the living room. The Small Storage Center is not only a nice looking piece of furniture it also offers so much more for organization, cutting and sewing.

    I have used the entry form a number of times and each time I type the “code” at the bottom, it tells me something is wrong. I have tried “spaces” and “no spaces” and type it in Capital Letters and I still get the same results. The rules say, “one entry per household” could it be that I entered already? I don’t remember doing so. There is no “Contact Us” on your website to ask this question or find out what’s wrong. Please help! Thank you. Winning this would be fantastic!

    For the last 5 months, I have been praying for a sewing cabinet/storage suite for my craft/sewing room. I have researched other cabinets, yours definately have the sewer in mind. I would love to win, but if not, the cabinets are in my future. You have succeeded in making furniture become an organized space for art to be made, and so much area for storage that’s just too pretty for words.I’ll dream of the sewing cabinet and storage units again,
