Nice show, but what's going on with the subtitles? This is like watching a Godzilla movie back in the day. Please try to synchronize. The city is spelled Boca Raton (not Ratone). Thanks

A lady in the audience asked Mark HOW to use his product, and he totally avoided answering her question! All he did was repeat what he had already told us regarding how he developed the product. What gives? If he is interested in selling his product, then he needs to tell us how to use it.

Mark's quilts are stunning but would have been nice to have seen how he uses his stabilizer rather than just explaining what the product is.
