David has converted a lot of our family's 8 mm film to a digital format. He has always done an excellent job and is a really good communicator. He's been very helpful about any of our requests, and I would highly recommend him. AAA+++

Thank you David for your time, patience and empathy. I would definitely recommend Weaving Memories to everyone wanting their memories to be reverted to a more modern, lasting and informative method of documentation. My final product was astonishing and all for a very reasonable price!

Absolutely thrilled with the audio David was able to capture off some 45 year old tapes I have. He cleaned them up and transferred them on to cd's which our family can now enjoy for many years. Very friendly and professional. I can thoroughly recommend David's work. Thank you David

This was the second occasion that we had used the services of Weaving Memories and as before the conversion of our 8 x 8mm Cine reels were professionally handled and David went out of his way to ensure that the final order was correct. Our family are over whelmed with the result. Thank you David.

David McDonald: Many thanks for your kind comments Jeannie. Much appreciated.
David was wonderful to work with and did a fantastic job with some very old and poorly exposed family movies. He worked overtime to get my Christmas present ready on time for my parents, and they were absolutely surprised and delighted with the DVDs. The movies have been watched several times already and have provided hours of entertainment. Thank you David, from me, and my family!

I have dealt with Weaving Memories and I have found David McDonald to be very professional and efficient when transferring details from my Video Cassettes to DVD's. The service he provided was excellent and on time and I can recommend his services. Robert Scott.

We are thrilled with the conversion of our 11 x 8mm films converted to DVD and for your help sorting them into the correct date order. The total cost was much less than expected and it is lovely to have secured them for future generations. Thank you also for extracting a small section for another family member and putting it on a DVD at no extra cost. Would definitely recommend using you.

We are delighted with the 17 hours of footage David converted for us, at an affordable price. We are thrilled to have it as an archive that we can now watch on TV or a laptop. He handled our footage sensitively, efficiently and professionally, and had robust documentation for keeping track of our many tapes. He explained the procedure very clearly, and was a great guy to deal with.

what more could i add to the reviews already. They have said it all and i wholeheartedly agree with each and every one. I will be showing some of these late 1960s through to 1980s films at my fathers unveiling this month. I have found many shots of him in his 30s and 40s he looks sooo young. I didnt remember these as being on the film and David has made them so clear. THANK YOU DAVID.

Wow! What an incredible service. David was a pleasure to work with, skillful, thorough, considerate, professional, with work done to the highest standard. I would, without any hesitation, highly recommend his services. We entrusted him with the conversion of precious old family films, old sound tapes, audio cassettes, video cassettes. Nothing was too much trouble. The price was incredibly generous and the respect shown by David for our material was superb. So glad we chose "Weaving Memories."

David McDonald: Many thanks for your kind comments. Your 8mm film collection was probably the most interesting I've worked on, especially the reels from 1938-39. I sincerely hope the elder members of your family enjoyed viewing the final result over Christmas. Kind regards, David
Thanks for a good job. Good to deal with and our 8mm film turned out better than before. well recommended.
