Default BBM or NBNG?

I am fixing to purchase a set of templates to use. I am pretty new to bow making so wanting to get some advice on this. Which ones you use and what about them do you like most?

Thanks...I can do alot of bows without the templates but can't seem to get all the loops to the same size. I was wondering if the templates would help. Do you have a tutorial on twisted boutiques cause I have tried everything and thats one bow I just can't figure out.

Both. They are both very nice and very different. And even when you can make bows without them, templates still save you time and make your bows look the same every time.
HTH.

Thanks twisted is the one I really want to figure out. I have tried it several times and just can't seem to get it right.

I really want to try some templates too. Do they come with a bow maker or how do they work? Sorry I don't mean to sound dumb.

I use to do all my bows by hand, and thought they looked good till I got my NBNG. Now my loops are even.

You really don't need templates, just lots of practice. It may be just be but I don't like it when bows all look exactly the same. Looks too machine made to me.
