Why sewing machine furniture will improve your sewing 

Koala Sewing Studios are fine sewing furniture custom built for you. They are made to your specifications right here in America. Not only are they custom built just for you, but you can also have your new cabinet delivered right to your home and the furniture will be carried to your sewing room and set up for you. What could be easier than that?
Start with your base model. You can choose from a variety of different sized cabinets to fit your space and needs. Whether you're in a tiny apartment like I am, you have re-purposed one of your children's bedrooms as a sewing room, or you have a fabulous sewing studio - there is a cabinet that'll fit your specific needs. Once you've narrowed down your options based on size, now you can consider height. Some of us are short, and some of us are tall. If you're planning to have your cabinet double as a cutting area, you'll want to keep the height in mind. I am taller, so I opted to have a higher height on my cabinet. This reduces back strain and pain. Koala offers 4 height options ranging from 29.25" to 38.25". Once you've decided on height, you can choose a finish. There are 8 wood finishes available, so you can match your existing furniture and decor.
Now, we're at the fun part. These cabinets include a sewing machine cut out attached to an electric lift. Place your machine on the lift platform, and with the press of a button, your machine will lower itself down in to the cabinet so you're working on a flat surface. You can choose between a matching wood insert or a clear acrylic one - depending on your preference! Working on a flat surface will improve the accuracy of your sewing tenfold. Without the weight of your project pulling in different directions, the machine will be able to feed and operate more smoothly, and you can spend less time wrangling your fabric and more effort being accurate!
Lastly, you can choose from several accessory options. My favorite is the Outback Leaf Extension. With this handy feature, you can actually pull your cabinet (which is on locking wheels for easy moving!) from the wall, and actually extend the space at the back of the table. This is a Godsend when it comes to quilting. Your large quilt is laid out on one flat surface as your work, so it's not falling down, pulling, or driving you nuts. If space is not a concern for you, you can even leave this piece extended and add shelving for organization and storage.
When you're done sewing, the doors fold closed and your machine can be sunk all the way into the cabinet. This keeps your work space neat and your sewing machine safe. It's especially good for when you've got company coming by and you need to quickly hide your creative mess!
Ordering one of these incredible pieces of furniture is a snap. Just stop by Daley by the Yard and choose your options. Your cabinet will go into production and within a couple weeks, it'll be delivered to your door. And don't forget to order one of Koala's SewComfort chairs. They are the absolute best sewing chairs out there. They adjust in height and have an adjustable back. I love them because they go much higher than an office chair. You all know I'm a tall girl, so height is always a factor for me. The chairs come in 4 colors and are super comfortable. If you're going to be sitting and sewing, you'll want to do it in comfort! Please stop by Daley by the Yard in Acton to see how we can help you.

Bernina Adjustable Ruler foot #72 

By cruising around our website or store location in Action, MA, you may have noticed that Daley by the yard offers the complete line of Bernina sawing machines. We believe in this product. It offers a certain level of quality, sophistication and value. One of these qualities is the Adjustable ruler #72. This foot allows you to sew along longarm quilting rulers to create decorative quilt designs such as lines, feathers, circles etc. Any commercial Plexiglas longarm quilting rulers with a ¼ inch thickness can be used. The height of the foot's sole makes it possible to quilt along all the edges of these rulers which is of utmost importance especially with circles.


We especially love the 7 series for this technique. With 10" of space to the right of the needle, there is plenty of room to maneuver both your quilt, and the ruler. The hover feature and the FHS knee lift make repositioning yourself and your project easy and comfortable.
With this technique the feed dog is lowered and the fabric with the Plexiglas ruler is guided manually with the base of the foot resting against the edge of the ruler. Due to the adjustment dial the height of the foot can be adjusted to match the fabric thickness individually so that the fabric can be moved smoothly and without getting stuck. Moreover, this additional option provided by the adjustable foot height extends the scope of applications for Bernina sewing machines without the function ‘automatic presser foot pressure/presser foot height.

Please stop by our store so that we can offer a demonstration of a Bernina sawing machine.
