Default Templates - are they worth it?

Hi - i'm looking at getting the bbm templates but with shipping it comes to over $70! On little pink lady bug the shipping alone os over $40!

Are they worth it? I'm just getting into selling and they make it all look so simple and the results are just beautiful i'm so tempted.

I think classic style bows would be very popular here but i'm desperate to give some ott bows a go (mainly for my own darling little girl).

What do you think?

I heard a lot of reviews on here about how great they are. I bought the one from little pink ladybug. But they don't turn out that well for me. I'm better doing them freehanded than I am using the template so it was a waste if money for me. But then again some people can't freehand. Just depends on your talents I guess.

I love my BBM templates, especially the classics. There are so many sizes for the classics and your bows turn out exactly the sale everytime. I also have the new snap templates and now can actually make a twisted bow. Tried those freehand just cna't get them yet. They were definitely worth my money. I

I'm in Canada and paid a small fortune for the shipping for bbm (the shipping cost is totally justifiable imo), BUT they are worth it, the shipping was FAST, I had to sign for it so I knew no one else would get it. Her templates are AWE-SOME!!! I've been making bows for a few year and the surround bow templates are SO worth it. Take me from 8-10 minutes of frustration getting them even to 1 minute start to finish and they are Perfect!!!!!!

I accidently bought 2 of the full kits, so if you're in Canada and want to save a bit on shipping, I'd be happy to sell them to you. =)

I bought NBNG but really didn't use them. I've referred to the ribbon lengths, but I have a way of making the bows so they're nice and even and for me it's faster to free hand.

The shipping is over $40 alone for the Little Pink Ladybug? I just ordered it and it was only about $8 for shipping, are you in Canada? Well I have to say, I am so thrilled with this set. They just ran a sale so I was able to get it for just under $50 shipped. The books are so detailed and you can tell a lot of hard work and effort went into them and I love that the pages are cardstock. I definitely think they are worth it!

I'm in the uk- hence the super hefty postage! Think I'll give them a go- thanks for your opinions. xc

I love my 5/8 one. The 1.5 inch one doesn't really make perky loops for me (but I don't practice a lot)

*I have the BBM Twisted

Does the BBM have a group or forum for help questions from ppl that have bought them? I know NBNG has a yahoo group. Does BBM have something similar?
