Tell me what you all do please.
I've always wondered this, but I guess that means I'm slow, too
It takes 5-10 minutes to completely finish a basic bow.
Any stacked bows (2 twisted, spikes, and surrounds) takes me a minimum of 30 minutes (and that's fast for me)

I do an assembly line if I'm getting ready for a show. I usually cut ribbon and sew all my twisteds in one day. The next day I can do the spikes, surrounds, and assemble. The most I've ever attempted to take to one show was 23 stacked bows that took me 3 days and wore me out
