IMO, I would stick with embroidery thread and needle. I still fold the old way. Front first, then back. i have modified my method over the years, but still love the way my loops sit up nice and tall.

I have teams that are on their second or third year using the same bow for competition. I have never used the plastic wire ties, but I would avoid any metal whatsoever.
