Default I have a question for all the recent BBM Buyers

After all the people who have bought these kits, I am a little perplexed as to why i am not seeing more people here extolling the virtues of the BBM kit (and posting pictures) now that they finally got them. I mean, there was a thread on here 10 pages long of people waiting (im)patiently for their order to come. And now the threads are silent. Why is that??

I, for one bought the template, and have been getting ready for my first show so I haven't had time to take pics, upload & all that good stuff yet. The template is the best thing I have invested $35 into in a LONG time!! It is amazing! I can make double, maybe even triple, what I was making in the same time frame now Did you buy the template?? If you didn't and are interested in buying, it is well worth it I will be posting pic soon hopefully but I patiently waited for the template, now I am busy making bows for my show (except when I take a little break here & there & get on here for a sec so now you will have to wait patiently for the pics to start being posted I know there has been a few people that have posted pics of thier bows using the template....they did awesome

Thank you for your reply!! I did just buy the Ultimate Template pack and I wasn't impressed (unfortunately). :-( I really wanted to be totally impressed and blown away and I wasn't. I was feeling that maybe more ppl felt the same way since I hadn't seen anything posted since so many ppl had ordered it. I don't want to cause a problem, but I do feel like this is a forum that we can/should talk about this kind of thing freely.

Your welcome Sorry to hear you weren't impressed. I got the twisted template, being that those were the ones I couldn't get down pat....I could not be happier with a template. I love it! My loops are even, it is fast & biggest thing, they look like twisted boutique bows when I am done Why did you not like it (if you don't mind me asking )

Well, as I was reading the book I realized this was all knowledge I already had (from browsing online). The figure 8 "twisted design" was something I was very familiar with and I was disappointed to see it in this package. I thought she had a special way of folding the bows that had not been seen before.

really? humph, i felt the same when i purchased a tutu instruction e-book online. I was pretty much bummed out that i bought something that was not useful. (all the info was pretty much online as well) Now, i am having second thoughts about purchasing this item as i have had my eyes on it for a while.

Yes, I know what you mean...I realize that I am not going to be very popular voicing my view here, but i hope that other people see this thread as fair and just and not a way to be catty. I have been thru some difficult hardships lately and I don't have a lot of extra money lying around. When I make purchases, I like to be as thorough as possible in my research to see if it is truly necessary. That is what a forum such as this is supposed to be for. Thank you again for your reply.

Well, I wasn't that impressed either. I've only tried using it a few times, but I was disappointed because the 7/8" twisted boutique bow didn't overlap (if you know what I mean) enough for my tastes. On top of that, it takes longer to make them using the template. Oh well, I guess I'll be unpopular, too. I think I'll use them a few more times and if my time or look of my bows doesn't improve, I guess I sell them.

I really liked my classic bbm...but honestly I wasn't blown away with the twisted one. It seems I can get the same results and faster just doing he figure 8 method.....Maybe I need to use it more? and the surrounds haven't been big enough for the few bows I did make....I need to use it more and see but I'm getting ready for a show and have been using the fastest methods I can....
