Default Tnt?

i've gotten pretty good at making the twisted boutique bow but am not very good at the pinwheel or the others. I have my bows in a boutique now and she's possibly wanting me to make some cheer bows too. my question is that i was thinking about buying the big kit with ALL the templates from no bow no go so that i will have them all and be able to do whatever type of bow she needs. i also figured it would help me with my stacked bows. i wanted to find out what you ladies think about the top notch templates from no bow no go. Is it worth it?

They are so worth it. When I started making bows, I knew that I would need help, so I researched with templates would be the best to order. Her's are great! HTH!

I have it the gator bite too and try to use it with them. You can on some of them, but its kinda tricky sliding it off the template and then having the gator bite clamp onto the ribbon. Maybe I'm not doing it right. I mainly just make the twisted, so there's no issue since its off the template.

I also have both the Brilliant Bow maker templates (classic & twisted). She shows you how to take the formed bow off the template and then tie it with a gator bite. But with hers, there are a lot of steps to take to form the bow, so I tend to stick with TNT.

I actually just bought the TNT template today. So far I have only been able to read the e-book as I am waiting for my templates to be shipped to me. So far from what I have seen I am pretty sure I made the right choice. I was tempted by the BBM but I wasn't happy with the limited sizes and the fact that it was just the Twisted Boutique. I also looked at the TOTT but I wasn't sure about the template mostly. I may still try it if I don't get enough out of the TNT instructions. HTH!!

I LOVE the TNT!! My best friend had never made a bow before in her life but bought it just to help me some (she's great!!) and was instantly able to make them, especially the pinwheels- she also uses it to make bows to send on mission trips! Not sure about using with the gator bite- I had never sewn the bows before either but that, too, is super easy with TNT!

I have the TNT and also use my gator bite. What I do is follow most of the steps she uses, except for wrapping the thread around to tie off. I still stitch my bows, slide off the template and then use my gator bite to crease. I am using 1/4 in organza ribbon to tie mine off

oh ok that sounds easy enough. i'm debating which one to get. Did you all just get the big one that has everything? I hate to spend 50 bucks but if it will help me diversify and be able to do more then i guess its worth it.
