I look at their completed listings and they are a big flop. JMHO.
I am also a proud member of the BowBetties and I am shocked that anyone would say something like this about a fellow bowmaker you don't even know. I've come on here a few times and have seen many posts about either myself or other members of my group, some nice and some not so nice. Someone even posted a picture of one of my bows and said I used the wrong color to match something. I shrugged it off, because I have to consider what kind of person would sink to that level, publicly criticizing another's bows. Bowmaking is an individual art and to criticize another bowmaker on a public forum is just LOW. "Big sellers" or not, our group is a wonderful group of women and friends who support each other and have fun doing what we love. I wouldn't change the group I'm in for anything!
As for the original poster - great job on the bow! Looks like you worked hard on it - keep up the good work
