I have TOTTS and NBNG. I love both of them. I can do some by hand, but when it comes to the twisted bows not a chance.LOL! There are tuts on youtube.com that are done by hair bow hardware. I hope this is of some help.

I first bought TOTT then recently NBNG. For some reason, I didn't love how my bows using TOTT turned out. I love the NBNG set, b/c the templates and instructions are very easy to use. I think I also want to buy BBM, just for comparison sake. I've heard great things about both. I tried free-hand for a while, but I had a hard time getting them consistent. (I bet Threeblessing's/Allison's instructions would have been very helpful though). Good luck on deciding. Sounds a wonderful gift!

This might sound crazy but are there detailed pictures in the NGNB book?

All the Brilliant Bowmaker kits come with a printed book.

If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them, but it looks like the girls did a pretty good job already

Thanks for replying Karyn. I sent you a pm the same day I posted to get more info on the BBM but I'm sure you get millions of pms so it may have gotten lost in the shuffle.

I bought the NBNG (TNT) templates recently and so far they're working out for me fairly well, except I still can't get the hang of the twisted's so I am eying the BBM templates for those next. Once I can save up for those I'll probably get them too to see if it helps me any with the twisted bows.
