Picture perfect…….and so much more!

9132_3_4_tonemappedWhile Max Bickford has enjoyed various careers, he has always been a creator at heart, someone with an artist’s eye who has long worked in design as a sideline. And thanks to the Municipality of Huron East’s “Win This Space” contest, he has now gathered all his artistic talents under one roof, as Studio Art & Custom Framing, including Huron County Graphics Design & Print. The visionary municipal competition provided a refresher course in start-up requirements and procedures for Max and led to his leasing the business space he had hoped to win even before the contest was completed. Someone once said “He who hesitates is lost.”

9108_09_10_tonemappedMax had no intention of hesitating or being lost! What this new business means for regional clients is ‘one stop shopping.’ No need to drive long distances to larger centres for a wide variety of services. Exceptional quality and excellent customer service are now available close to home. 9054_5_6_tonemapped9057_8_9_tonemappedMax is able to enlarge your favourite wedding photos and custom frame them beautifully. He can design business cards, letterhead, brochures, posters and advertising material, and then arrange all the printing. If it’s a particularly special photograph of your business property or eye-catching poster you’d like blown up and framed for your reception area, Max can look after that too.

9093_4_5_tonemappedHis newly renovated storefront also carries a number of stylish promotional products which can be embossed with your company logo or name. And all these high end services are offered at reasonable prices.

9087_8_9_fusedAs a further attraction, Max’s storefront carries outstanding pottery, some designed by local artisans, such as Beechwood Pottery, as well as a line from Prince Edward Island, and unique hand-painted Cedar Mesa pottery from Arizona.


9081_2_3_tonemappedWhether for home, office or as an exceptional gift, these superbly crafted pieces will enhance any space, adding colour, form and function in any setting. If you’re looking for the best in service and products, it’s here now.

Sip, Sip and Savour…..

Maelstrom large

First Registered Winery in Huron County


Jim Landsborough and Catherine Peckitt-Landsborough have roots deep in Huron County.  Jim and his ancestors have farmed in Tuckersmith Township in the Municipality of Huron East since 1834, and the present 100-acre spread they call home was once part of Catherine’s family farm.  However, since 2009 this industrious couple has put down quite different roots, while embarking on an enterprise that will bring a new industry to Huron County.

Winemaking…….and not just ordinary wines.


Their goal is to produce the highest quality wine from the very best grapes that Huron County can grow.  Following considerable research, which included hiring renowned cool climate consultant Kevin Ker to assist with site and vine selection and visits to numerous wineries throughout Canada and the USA, as well as a one acre test plot and several trial batches, Maelstrom’s Vineyard now spreads over 8 acres and comprises 9,600 vines.


Huron East has proven to be just the place to deliver the moderate adversity that grape vines require to produce excellent fruit…..the plants need stress to condense the grapes, which results in the most flavourful wines. This boutique winery is growing several hybrid grape varieties developed as cold-hardy, disease tolerant, and early ripening.  And Jim and Catherine have also put in “vitis vinifera“, pure bred European vines, planted on a root stock that makes them hardier.


Maelstrom Winery will produce red, white, and rosé wines as well as blends and sparkling cider.  Ably assisted by their sons, Brett, Blaine and Brian, who are very much involved with the new business, the entire family is looking forward to developing this unique initiative, one that’s sure to heighten the profile of Huron County with wine-lovers and tourists alike.


It has been said that life is too short to drink bad wine—Maelstrom Winery agrees and will deliver preeminent Riesling, Baco Noir, Cabernet Franc, Geisenheim, Chardonnay, Maréchal Foch Frontenac Blanc, Vidal and Marquette, an award winning wine that finishes as a complex, ruby red with pronounced tannins and highly desirable notes of cherry, berry, black pepper, and spice on both nose and palate.


Santé!  Cheers!  Skål!  Prost!  Salute!

Seaforth’s newest retirement home…..with style!

Maplewood Manor ~ Comfort of Living

13 Church Street, Seaforth Ontario N0K 1W0 ● (877) 722 6378  ● www.comfortofliving.com

Maplewood (3) In the realm of retirement residences, Maplewood Manor is unique in many ways.  Located in historic Seaforth, the Manor is housed in what was Seaforth’s Public School, built in 1867 and now a designated heritage site.  Completely renovated and stylishly redecorated, by owner Sam Riad, the warmth of its entranceway is echoed in its dining room, suites, patio, and even the kitchen—as in most family homes, the kitchen of the Manor is the hub of the place.  An open-door atmosphere welcomes residents and visitors alike.

Owner and staff of Maplewood Manor agree that seniors are special, that seniors have contributed much and have much to contribute still.  Within its stately walls, residents come first and foremost.  It is their home, their 30,000 square foot house.  From home-cooked (and customized) meals to homey accommodations, the comfort and safety of residents are top priorities at Maplewood.

Amenities, such as an elevator, access ramps, social and activity area, hair salon, and between-meals refreshments and snacks, are all part of ensuring the wellbeing of Maplewood residents.  The piano is played, lively card games are enjoyed, visitors come and go, and special events are celebrated, all part of day-to-day living in this restful place.

In-house non-denominational religious services, massage, physiotherapy, exercise classes and entertainment, along with off-site activities, provide Maplewood’s citizenry opportunities to vary their daily routine.  As Sam says with a smile “The only difference from the residents’ own home is that we look after the cooking, cleaning, laundry and housekeeping here.”
