I have been so excited since first learning you were in the process of doing this.
I have the classic templates/book. Will I need a new book for these templates or are they basically the same idea?
Can you tell us how many you will have out in the beginning? I will be watching every minute!!!

The new pages will fit into the original binder. You should be able to store it in the binder as well, although the Twisted Template is not completely flat. The whole Brilliant Bowmaker System is designed to eventually be an "A la carte", pick and choose what you need for your bowmaking, and it all fits and works together. The Twisted and Surround templates are not the last

Thank you

There will be plenty.

They do take a bit more assembly than the BBC, because it really should be injection molded, but since that started at $12,000 for just the 12 cams (moving parts for overhangs on the mold) plus the cost of the mold, we had to revisit square one and redesign it to be die cut and assembled. But I have my work force (family and friends) on notice.

Do you have an idea of how much it would be for you all inclusive kit? That way I can go ahead and budget it in, lol.

For ANY of you bowmakers, new or veteran, thinking about getting the templates, I HIGHLY recommend them!!!! I have the original set, and love, love , LOVE them! My bows look fabulous every time! Very easy to use! Easy to remember the lengths of ribbon needed. I get many compliments! I have been waiting for the new ones and will not hesitate for a moment to purchase them!!!! I love the twisted bows, and although they probably won't be a hot seller in my area - they are relaly into little classic styles - I can make them for my dd!!! Go Karyn!!!!

Thanks all!

Because of the dreaded finger delay I wanted to offer a few more tidbits of information. I went ahead and had webcam sessions with a couple of online bowmakers, who have each seen the new template and can give you a few more fun details. They have also seen my finger and can vouch for it's unphotogenic-ness.

I know several of you have let me know how completely I am torturing you, but I sincerely apologize and promise that it is worth the wait!

I"m one of the lucky ones that got a webcam peek! And yes, her poor finger!!!!! Even with her finger in one of those metal thingies (not a cast, but what do you call it?) she was able to make a bow right before my eyes simply!!! This thing looks fantastic! this template actually helps you form the correct angles! I know how to make a twisted boutique bow, I completely understand how the angles are supposed to be, but I always loose it somewhere along the lines and get one loop that looks kind of wonky. I think this thing will be the answer to my prayers! LOL!

I know I want to order this ASAP, should I go ahead and get the kit that is available now, and then order the additions (twisted boutique) when it is ready? I don't even have the original templates yet, and this is killing me!!! I trust you ladies, and if the templates help this much, I need them NOW!!
