Default Newbie here

Hi all!

I am a newbie here, just lurking about but I am coming out of hiding! I am a 31 year old stay at home mom, with a 7 month old daughter, Isabella. I have just started making hairbows to keep myself sane!

Question for those with the NBNG templates... Should I invest in the 9 piece template set?

I'm new to this, so I do not want to spend money foolishly, but it seems like these templates are the way to go...

Thanks!
Nicole

I bought the NBNG set with 4 sizes two years ago and I still use them! I think it depends on what size bows you are wanting to make, the only size I needed in addition to the original was a 2 1/2 size one, but I like to make smaller bows. HTH

Welcome

Yet another NBNG user here...I have the set of 12 & yes I think I have used every one of them...I was asked to make bows for someone for their chairs at Christmas time (her 1st time hosting for the extended family so she wanted to impress lol) so the largest template came in very handy for that

As a pp has said you need to decide what size bows you want to make and then work out which templates to buy

Welcome to the forum. I personally don't use the NGNB templates, but like someone else said they are very popular with no issues that I have noticed. I make my bows for my grand-daughter so uniformity is not a necessity.
