We are very excited to be able to tell you, that as promised in our last newsletter, we have now made the website more user friendly for all our users and especially for those on iPads and Tablets. So, what does this mean for you?


Changes to the screen size

All users will notice that the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page.

For Ipads you can use Safari:

For Android Tablets you can use the normal Internet browser:

If you have been using Puffin, you can still continue to use it if you want, but the browsing experience may be better through your standard browsers.

Using a Computer, Laptop or Mac

You can continue to view as normal, but as above, the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page


If you have any questions then please contact us and we will be happy to help you, and we’d be delighted to let us know your feedback and thoughts on the new site.

Quilters Take Poppy Challenge

July 29th, 2014

With 2014 marking the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, some local artists are remembering in their own special way.

Members of the St. Albert Quilters’ Guild took up the challenge this year of creating quilts with poppies incorporated into the designs to commemorate those who died in the war, which lasted from 1914 to 1918. The quilts were on display Thursday, June 12, as the guild held its annual summer potluck dinner at the Grandin Clubhouse on Grenfell Avenue.

Do you love Butterflies?

July 25th, 2014

I do and certainly can't resist fabric that has them on;  not so keen on moths however.  Still follow this link and you will see them in a whole new light:

North Carolina-based artist Yumi Okita creates beautiful textile sculptures of moths, butterflies, and other insects with various textiles and embroidery techniques. The pieces are quite large, measuring nearly a foot wide and contain other flourishes including painting, feathers, and artificial fur.

quite beautiful and won't flutter irritatingly round your light bulb!


Site Upgrade Coming Soon

July 21st, 2014

From around 28th July, you will notice some changes to the shape of the video screen as we have been busy converting all the videos to a format that is more user friendly, especially for those on iPads and tablets: you should notice that the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page

When you notice the change has happened, iPad and tablet users won't have to use Puffin, but you can use your regular browsers if you prefer, (eg Safari on iPad, Internet on Android tablets) as you would for other websites you visit.

If you view on a normal computer, laptop or Mac, you continue to view as normal, but again the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page
