No, I have not bothered her with it. Like I said its not the tut that is the problem its probably just me. I am not talking about anything that gives the tut away so I didn't know it was a problem.

I'd give them a chance to trouble shoot and explain the instructions in more detail before you get in trouble for discussing the details of a paid tut on the boards.

Just a thought.

Cinching.

Imagine a piece of flat ribbon. Put your needle with thread in in and out along the end. Slowly gather it. Kind of ruffles it up.

Imagine a long worm that is crawling. It's body goes up and down in several places. Stick a needle through it. Pull tight. That is cinching. Ha

Let me clarify. I don't think you've done anything wrong here, but generally speaking even discussing free tuts for a similar method is seen as negatively impacting the creator of a paid tut.

In fact there has been one recent thread on a free version of a puffy loop bow and the original poster took a lot of heat for posting a link to a free tutorial. The biggest criticism, if I remember correctly, is that she or a subsequent poster mentioned the measurements which I guess were the same as those for the paid tut. Something the original poster wouldn't know since she says she didn't buy the paid tut. Nevertheless she wound up apologizing.

In this thread I've learned something I could have guessed, that there is "cinching" involved and something I probably wouldn't have guessed, that there is "fanning" involved. Those are things that involve technique which is arguably more specific than a simple measurement.

Again, I don't think you've done anything wrong but I strongly suspect that the paid tut purists on this board would prefer that you communicate with the creator directly and give her a chance to walk you through your questions rather than run the risk that you indirectly reveal any of her secrets.

Good luck figuring it out.

Kel

Ok thank you for you side. I did actually send a pm to the creator of the tut to get some feedback from her.I'm awaiting a reply. And as far as posting the free link to the tut that was me who posted that. (I wasn't the the 1st person to post it though) Then everyone told me it was trash and that someone had previously posted that tut and got a lot of heat for it. And yes I did apologize and the creator of the paid tut posted on there saying that she appreciated the different technique shown in the free tut. Yes, I apologized and when everyone told me that the free tut was garbage and not to waste my ribbon I bought the paid tut. But thank you for showing me your side I appreciate it and as always am not trying to step on toes just trying to better my puff.

I have no idea who the seller of this tutorial is, I've seen posts about this bow, but I haven't tried to make one, nor searched for the tutorial/seller yet. BUT, as a seller of tutorials, I wanted to say that I would NEVER be bothered by someone asking me a question about my tutorials or their technique, I'm always happy to help trouble shoot, and I've even been known to edit my tutorials based on questions I've received. so I cannot imagine she would be bothered and I'm sure she would prefer that you ask her directly.

She does have a short video. If you did not receive it, just email her and she will send it to you. I bought my tut when it first came out and did not receive it or know about it until I emailed her. She is very helpful!
