If you don't have any success there, there is also Lone Star Ribbon All of the above carry a wide array of colors in the 3" grosgrain ribbon.

Generally when fusing layers of ribbon together, I use E6000 to hold them. The only time I use heat n bond these days is to hold sequin or spandex fabric to ribbon. I find it works just as well and the bows are not quite as difficult to fold and sew. I purchased instructions from NoBowNoGo. They are great. Of course, over time, you discover your own tricks and find techniques that work well for you.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me. GOOD LUCK!

Great info. Thanks for sharing.
