Default Do you glue or sew spikes

I am still new at making bows and I am looking for effective ways to make my nice bows and work fast. Sewing spikes to the bow so that it will stay in place looks neat but it is time consumming. So, I would like to know which is better to glue or to sew it. Do customers notice the difference?

I sew mine. I tried fusing them but then when it came time to put them under the bow I couldn't get it to look right I'll have to try again.
