Default NoBowNoGo vs BBM

NoBowNoGo template sets are out! Does anyone have that? Do you like using it? Do you have BBM and NBNG? Which one do you like better?

I am torn between getting BBM or NBNG... I can only afford one. BBM looks great for stacking, especially with the different sizes available.

I need one that gives me perfect bows. I am anal. My loops have to be equal and even. I "dismantled" nearly all my mini bows last night cos I thought they were uneven. My sister think I am loopy! LOL!

The templates from NBNG just came out last night so no one has them except a few people that tested them. I have the instruction book for them (which are wonderful) & the templates are on the way. I also have the BBM & really like it. I truly think it all depends on what you are wanting to do & your preference. NBNG has instructions for the boutique bows & BBM is coming out with those in the spring. I have my own strange way of doing things so I have to try all my options before I decide which one works for me.
This is kinda similar to asking about LAMBS vs TOTTS. Everyone will have their own preference for one over the other. I also have the TOTTS with the bowmaker & can only use that for certain bows.

I am not sure if this helps or makes it worse.

I bought the no bow no go one yesterday so I have the instruction book but the templates have to be mailed. The instructions look excellent but I have no idea if it is similar to the brilliant bow maker because I do not have that. I don't sell bows but just make them for my girls but I think this will make bow making a lot easier and a lot faster.

OIC. I didn't realised that it was only realised yesterday. I was thrilled to read that it was able to do so many variations of bows! Yeah... BBM only does one bow in 3 different sizes. But the bow samples from Karyn are so beautiful. I am so confused as to which one I should go for.

I do not have a bow biz as yet (I hope so, when my bows are more consistent in sizes), but I do make them for friends' kids and it is kinda embarrassing when the bows are lopsided.

BBM has an actual book you can look at. That's really nice to have. I'm not a huge fan of ebooks.

I liked the idea of the actual book vs the ebook as well, so I bought the BBM yesterday. I can't wait for it to arrive!

I haven't received mine yet, but I have the ebook from no bow no go.. and the instructions are excellent. The best I've read so far and I have 3 different sets. They are easy to understand and super easy to follow.. I can't wait to get the templates.. I prefer books over ebooks too.. that's why I always print out my instructions and put them in a 3 ring binder.. The no bow no go instructions are photo filled and 126 pages so DH will have to print it off at work for me.

I finally ordered the TNT last night too. It was just too tempting... templates to make every bows on her site. I have TOTT, love the ebook, hate the bowmaker. Like most of you, I print the pages out for easier reference.

I was unable to download the ebook though, despite 3 tries. Oh well... I will have to wait for Devon to help me out there.
