I teach full time so I'm coming home and doing
nothing but making bows. I enjoy them but not that much, lol. Any of you out there have any tips on making bows faster? TIA!!
I have a schedule. I make a certain thing on a certain day. Like Monday, I make 3" twisteds, just tie up a bunch throw em in a tote. Next day, 5" twisteds, tie em up, throw em in another tote. Next day, make a bunch of spikes (coordinate your sets with what you have made). Next day, assemble. Basically, if you do it right, you can have one day to cut and seal, one for 3", one for 5", one for Spikes, and one for assembly. Then you have the weekends free. Anytime I have spare time, I sit and just tie my twisteds. So then, when I have an order some in, I can grab the bows and assemble however they made need assembled.
