Bev Shumilak (Central Sewing) says of the Road Show:

"Bev's Seal of Approval:I have never met as knowledgeable a digitizer as Trevor. If you are just starting into digitizing be sure to attend - the hints and tips you will pick up will save you hours of frustration. If you are an advanced digitizer or attended his 1-day workshop don't miss the 2nd day. You will be amazed."

Sharon Safranyos says of the Road Show:

"Thank you so much for sharing your expertise at this show. You managed to solve so many of my problems in that 1.5 hours !! I was half way to figuring out some of them but without knowing why !! You are an excellent teacher, I will be signing up for the on-line lessons shortly, and may just have to purchase your CD too.

Ellen Fullerton says of the Road Show:

"Hi Trevor,
Thank you! Thank you! The training session in Calgary was terrific. You certainly addressed the questions that I had regarding the digitizing "process". I was impressed with the methodical simple step by step procedure. I only hope that soon I will be able to digitize half as confidently as you."
