Default Re: template advice needed!

I use the NBNG templates mostly because of consistency in size. I never really timed myself when I didn't use the templates, but with the templates, I am super happy because my bows are all the same size. I do feel it goes faster as you are basically measuring your ribbon as you wrap. For the twisteds, what I usually do is seal the end of ribbon from the spool, wrap around the template, cut to size, seal that end, pin the middle and pull off the template. I will do about 12 at a time like this. Then I separate and form the bows and sew. I can do 12 in about an hour. I usually don't do stacked from start to finish because I feel it takes too much time to switch gears from twisteds, surround loops, spikes, etc. So I do in dozens. Hope this helps.
