Default What is the best thread to tie bows?

I got my gator bite today and was trying it and realized I can't tie the bow with my regular hand quilting thread. For those of you that tie your bows what is the best thread to use? or is it better to tie with wire?

Have to say I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the way the gator bite makes the creases. I was like WOW! Why didn't I buy this before LOL

I use organza ribbon...1/4 or 1/8th it is the best way!!! for me anyways- it ties super tight.

I sew mine, so I'm not sure about using with the Gator Bite, but I use thread made for jeans. I like it better then the upholstery thread because it's not as slippy and has been a little stronger for me .

I was checking out the gator bite yesterday, and wasn't sure, but I think you just sold me on it!!!

Did you get the templates as well or just the gator bite??

I LOVE my gator bite!!! I use Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread. Its the one in blue I believe. I buy mine from Walmart, it cost less than 5 bucks I think and it lasts FOREVER!!! (and I waste ALOT lol)

I use dental floss. Not the regular kind, the kind meant for teeth that have spaces in them. I cannot break the thread no matter how hard I pull it. So I know my bows will never fall apart I use Johnson % Johnson wide floss.
