Default Re: S/O: Do you starch bows? If yes, which ones?

I starch too. I hand fold and sew (sometimes tie) them and they are always pretty perky even after a couple of years, but I feel better selling them if they are somewhat stiff. I drench them as well, and who ever suggested the blow dryer...yes it works wonders! If you are in a rush, it works. If I'm not in a rush, I starch and let them sit out over night. Also, if I'm making stacked bows, I starch each piece individually, then dry, then put them together. Whew, it's work but looks nice.

Queston: If you bake after long and what temp? Also what kind of thread do you use to sew or tie them with? thanks
