"Had heard Dean was good, so decided to try. We learnt how to digitize designs and afterwards knew that if we were stuck we could always count on his support. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about embroidery techniques and also make more profit in their business. A great course"
Anne Taylor Director Director, PSU of Poynton Ltd
"The Wilcom Training is absolutely worth doing, Dean is great! He's very patient and teaches you in a way that you can totally understand and not get bogged under with too much 'Tech' talk. I came away feeling so much more confident about using the software and with a lot more knowledge from this great digitizer. Very highly recommended for any digitizer/embroiderer. Thank you Dean!"
Jodie Groves Owner Twisted Stitches
"Dean is great, his teaching is fun and clear and constructive. He's patient and gears his teaching to a pace which pushes us, but is not beyond our capabilities. Exactly what you need from a wonderful digitizer and instructor."
