FYI, I don't know them, never ordered from them, really know nothing about them, it's just what I've seen happen all around the bow industry. It's a tough business!
I have to agree with you. I do not know her nor have I ever met her, but there are people in the bow business that have bought her bows as well as bows from others just to take them appart to see how they are made and to replicate them. I am fairly new to the bow making "business", but not to bow making and/or sewing as I have been doing this for decades; cheer bows specifically for over 12 years. I just made it into a business after I got sick and had to closed my store in the mall.
People have asked me to make bows "just like this one" and will offer to but the bow form the person that has it and send it to me so I can copy it and each and every time I have turned them down. I do not need to take a bow apart to see how it was made or what material. Just tell me what you are looking for and I will come up with something on my own that you will be very happy with.
I seems as though she had been taken advantage of by newer bow makers that do not know where to start or even how to tie a bow who will order hers and them copy them. I too would have put out the videos and sell the bow making kits. Actually I think the kits will certainly make more money (profit) than the actual bow(s).
I do wish her the best of luck and she is certainly someone I would have love to meet and work with.

I am so sad to see Nancy leaving the cheer bow business! She always sets the bar so high on new designs and was so creative! I have been in contact with her recently and she has been so wonderful and helpful! She truly is so kind and a joy to work with! I hope to gain a new friendship with Nancy! Love working with her and she is so supportive of me, especially since I am so young trying to grow my business!

I can't say that I am surprised to see this. That company had horrible customer service. I told them that their wait time of 6 weeks was excessive for 1 bow so her husband told me fine, then I could go somewhere else and that my business was no longer welcome. I told them they wouldn't last very long with that attitude, guess I was right. Here's a tip for your next business venture, it's not a good business practice to yell at your customers.

Only one did I ever have a bow come across my table from her that a customer gave me. My bows are made nothing like hers and I told the customer, I could not duplicate it. My daughter always wanted a yella bow but being that I went into the business, I never felt I could order one because she would think I was trying to copy it.
