Default Re: Best Template for Bow Making?

are the templates not all they are cracked up to be? i've seen on here and ebay people re-selling theirs and have contemplated on purchasing them to see if it will help me understand bow-making a little bit better, i'm pretty sure i would use them, maybe until i become a pro at it--who knows....soooo if anyone is looking to get rid of their templates, please PM me, I really really really want to buy one but don't know that I want to pay full price for something that may or may not be useful for me personally.
Thanks!

I have both, and use them for different things......

The BBM is super wonderful for a beginner, and someone who just wants to whip out a lot bows in a speedy fashion. My 12 year old autistic son who has horrible finger dexterity (sp?) can make bows with the BBM.

The TNT is what I use when I want to make Twisted Boutique bows. It helps keep everything even, and it does speed up the process.

They both comes with wonderful sets of instructions also. If I remember correctly I had to print off the TNT ones, but the BBM comes in it's own little pink binder with the instructions printed on paper that will (to me) last forever....The BBM will be coming out from what I've read with a twisted template soon, and you can either buy that set when it comes out, or add to it.....I love 'em both, but if I were just beginning I would probably go with the BBM

HTH

I couldn't get the Twisted Boutique until I got the TNT templates. While the template helps with the proper fold, the instrucions are so detailed it makes it extremely easy to understand. I'm not sure how the BBM is going to work when it comes out. If it's anything like the classic, it might be the way to go.
