Yes, I love mine too. I actually ordered a 2nd one yesterday in case mine breaks. LOL. Seriously I could not make bows without it. The teeth are important for gripping and the crease! I so agree.
ldelzer, but when I fold mine with the GB and tie off toward the front, it creases us like a "W" so if I tie it towards the back it makes the "M". I didn't realize the shape of the crease was so important. For me, it just works if I tie it off toward the back.
As far as the length, I am kinda weird b/c I hand fold and don't measure. I just fold the ribbon off the spool and eye ball it and then cut when I have the shape I want.
