ok, i am really behind here, help. is no bow no go just an instruction book or is it a "tool"? what do they mean by "template"? i make a good basic hair bow and am ready for the next step but honestly i am so stupid when it comes to following directions about these things. i feel like i am back in junior high math class - i start to glaze over and drool. so when you say this is really easy, after what i have just told you, how easy? sally

YOU CAN DO IT!! I think in a couple years my 1 1/2 year old can do it lol.
It is so easy to follow and the templates are a tool- a very very good one! The twisted still take some effort and practice but every other kind of bow is pretty much perfect the 1st time.

The NBNG system is a set of plastic templates (around which you wrap the ribbon to make different bows). You also get a very comprehensive instruction manual (either ebook or printed book) that takes you step by step through the process (i.e. how to wrap the ribbon for different bows, what length to use for different sizes, what size ribbon works best for different size bows, how to sew the center to make perfect creases, etc.) I seriously couldn't make a decent bow without these, and now I sell my items through a local store. Trust me (and all the others who use this system), you'll love them!

That was very helpful. i am also a started and i cannot decide between the nobownogo or the brilliant bow maker. i know how to fold the ribbon in different ways and i know the measurments of the differnt bows i just cannot get my bows to twist. i tried sewing, elastic thread, an alligator clip, embroidery floss and they look perfect b4 i tie them and when i finally twist it, they look horrible. So would i be better off with the brilliant bow template or the NObownogo?

In the description for the NBNG, it says "Just wrap your ribbon, stitch up the center notch and tighten." Does that mean that you can't just tie it off, you have to stitch with a needle & thread? I am wanting to get as much info as possible before I invest in a template set Thanks!!
