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.

Using an Ipad or Android tablet

You can now view the website through your regular browsers if you prefer, as our videos no longer require Flash Player to play on your devices.

For Ipads you can use Safari:

5_safari-1 - Juliet Coffer - juliet

5_safari-2 - Juliet Coffer - juliet

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 have your feedback and thoughts on the new site.

In the meantime, happy sewing
