…in with the new!!!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

In one jam packed week our sewing room went from this

to this…..!!!

Isn’t that amazing!! I am “sew” excited. The studio went from a dull white to a cheery yellow, very inspirational, yet calming. How can I express the change? It is “SEW” wonderful. There is a place for everything and for now, almost everything  is in it’s place. Drawers and cupboards, baskets and trays, shelves and cubbies make me celebrate organization on a whole new level!

With a triangular work flow from sewing machine, to ironing, to my computer I am sure my production will increase…hope you’re all happy to hear that. Orion added convenience with several accessory slat walls. Aren’t they attractive? Hooks inserted into the slats hold rulers, rotary cutters, patterns and notions all within easy reach.

Thank you for all your kind and encouraging words about my new Koala Studio. Hope you like the change…now, when you see our books and patterns, you will know where it was all inspired and created.


Out with the old….

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Cody isn’t getting “fresh” he is hooking me up for a microphone and I am excited! You’ve heard me exclaim this over and over but I AM EXCITED! I am about to show you (and others via video) my OLD and MESSY sewing room. Ordinarily, I would keep cameras away, but it is out with the old and soon to be in with the NEW.

All of this…..

All of this….

Even our trusty copier….


Orion and I are discussing “the plan”. In the next few days, this room will be stripped (another of my favorite terms) of everything. From floor to ceiling, gone…including the carpet and existing lights.

This make over is a custom Koala Studio.

Can’t wait to show you the new but like me, you have to wait patiently.
