“Twistin’ Sam spent just over two hours at the Kelowna branch of the Okanagan Regional Library. He was able to make unique pieces for each child based on their requests. The Youth Services Assistant who was present reported, Sam is amazing! He would be really great to have here as some sort of entertainment on the first day of Summer Reading Club registration. There is still a lineup of kids and he has been going straight for over an hour. So far I have seen bunnies (different styles), motorcycles, a lion, a mermaid, an alien, flowers, a peacock, penguins and anything else that the kids request. Thank you to Twistin’ Sam for bringing joyful smiles to many Okanagan families!” - Ashley Machum

“I first saw Sam twisting balloons in my son’s kindergarten class. The kids were amazed when he could suddenly take boring balloons and turn them into hats and creatures. It was a madhouse, but he never got flustered or impatient. He was simply wonderful with the kids. He’s one of those people that children like automatically.When it came time for the big fundraiser at the school I asked Sam if he could make a couple of mermaids and schools of fish out of balloons, to complement the Under the Sea theme. It was a shock when he arrived with a spectacular twelve foot long mermaid! His fish schools, octopi and smaller mermaids were simply wonderful.This year I’ve asked him to make two large elephants to go with our Bollywood theme and as always, he’s happy to create something he’s never attempted before. Sam is enthusiastic, creative, and a terrific balloon twister. I would highly recommend him for any child or adult event.” - Kelly Ryan
