    Default Almost 8 months waiting

    It is finally here-all the parts and they are assembled and ready to get a workout. I ordered this Koala cabinet on May 5 and yesterday the final parts arrived, I had to do a bit of assembling (could have opted to have one of their peeps come to do the final installation but did not know how long that would take). I have been using most of it and very much enjoying it but it was not complete until this morning. Would I buy another Koala cabinet? Probably not at this point, it was nothing but a hassle-lots of phone calls, e-mails and a few visits from them to fix. Ask me again in a year or so and my answer may be different. It is a wonderful cabinet and oh so handy but not sure if it was worth it.

    Is that one cabinet that accommodates two machines? How cool is that!?

    I recall your prior posts about the difficulties you experienced in this acquisition, I'm glad that all those issues are resolved and you finally have the completed cabinet. Enjoy your wonderful new work space.

    What a nice sewing space you have. Congratulations on getting everything together at last! You are much more patient than I would be.

    Beth, your set up is inviting and beautiful. Terribly long wait, though. I hope that the memories you make eventually overshadow the early hassles!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Congratulations... oh by the way where did you get that basket looking system hanging on the wall, is it adjustable? Upper left side of the picture.

    Got that at Ikea, totally handy, the baskets/shelves are adjustable and easily removed to look thru. Wish I would have gotten more while I was there.

    Its great. I wanted the Koala cabinet so badly, but DH wanted to build mytable and he did a beautiful job. No regrets here but your set up looks like a dream come true.

    Beth - bet you gave a big sigh of relief when it was finally done. Love the 2-machine set up but had to giggle a bit when I saw the big chair behind the big machine and a small chair for the smaller machine. Reminded me of Mama Bear and Papa Bear ...
