Pop Warner is a football organization. Like your local rec league but they have different rules. They have cheerleaders for games and many of them compete as well. I know it is big in Connecticut. New Jersey seems to have a lot of rec league teams. California has some type of organization, but I'm not sure what it is. I hear Jr. Wildcats, Jr. Panthers and names like that all the time from CA customers.

I am so much more familiar with all star cheer than anything else. My daughter, who is nine, is starting her sixth year of all star cheerleading. So it is in our blood.

intandem: That is so funny. And flattering. Thanks for sharing the story.

My web designer does a lot of cheerleading sites but he also does all kinds of web work. He also owns a media company so I get business cards from him and he does my print ads like in magazines for example. Print ads are a complete waste of money by the way. I can't tell you if I have gained one customer from my ads in American Cheerleader or any of the other mags.

I am thinking about either publishing a blog or maybe a thread here with just my thoughts on being a business woman. Believe me, last year in June my husband told me I had until September to prove to him I could make money at this. I had tried so many things to help him with the finances that he was very skeptical. Would you all be interested in reading something like that? I thought a blog might be the best. Just a running log of my experiences, successes and failures. Let me know what you think.
I think it would be fabulous if you would be willing to start a thread on here about all your adventures of being a business women--I truly hope you will consider it.....

1.5" is teeny ribbon.

I like making the cheer bows and the regular - what I hate is KORKERS - that should be a four letter word!

LOL

HAHA You are too funny.

The first time someone asked me to make a bow with 2 1/4 inch ribbon I thought she was crazy. I had never worked with anything over 1 1/2. Now it seems so narrow!

Lorraine, I am so glad you are back!

Devon's instructions are the bomb, I have tried the free ones posted and did not like them, Devon's are very detailed and shows every step, which is necessary for a lot of people. If you know parts of it you can just skip that part. nobownogo is her website and if you have any problems you can just ask her and she will help you.

Hey all! I have to chime in a little bit as well. I've been doing them for 3+ years now and I even bought Devon's instructions, only because I was curious. Sometimes it's nice to see someone else's perspective. There were many steps that I don't do, but I'm sure they'd be great for someone starting out who needs to build up their confidence. I did a little bit of experimentation with some new styles of bows this year:

Sorry for the link - I couldn't figure out how to insert the picture.

Now onto the joys of LARGE orders. I was scanning through the Yella Ribbon posts and I have no idea how in the world you do it! I have 108 of the same bows to make for one gym this year and I honestly don't know HOW I'm going to do it! I'll be bored to tears.

xoxxoox,
Crissie
