Default templates

So I have decided to purchase the NBNG templates and E-book but I wasn't sure which one to get because it doesn't show which templates come with it. I was thinking about purchasing the 9 template set. Does anyone know which templates come with that set and if it is a good set to get??

That's the set I got and a lot of people get. The template sizes refer to finished bow sizes. That set will allow you to make all of the bows, in the ebook, from 2" to 6". You'll get templates in: 2", 2.5", 3", 3.5", etc. Honestly, this should allow you to make all the sizes you want, unless you're looking to make 8" bows . I've only purchased one supplemental template, and that was the 1 1/2" template. If you're looking for other sizes 1 1/2" or bigger than 6", you can purchase them individually). I love my NBNG set, and I'm sure you will, too!

Thank you SO much! I was so confused, I thought that it was only certain bows you could make depending on which sets you bought. I am much happier now that I know I can make all the bows! lol

I am going to purchase this now!

So I purchased the NBNG off of Etsy and it said that it came with the e-book. How do I download the e-book and where do I do it at?

I purchased mine off of their website, but for the Etsy purchase, I'm sure they will email it to you.

not to hijack but I am also considering this, what other gadgets do I need with it such as clips, etc. Is there any oher "things" I will need with this after I get it home and want to make a bow and then say Oh I have to still have this. Hope that makes sense.

You don't *need* anything else. If you want to use the NBNG method of sewing the creases, you just need your ribbon (of course , needle & thread (the ebook also advises that you use 2 or 3 alligator clips with non-slip grip to hold your ribbon to the template, but I just use 2 fully lined velvet alligators). If you want to try something like the gator bite, or a big Sally's clip to hold your bow while you wrap the center with elastic, wire, etc., then that's up to you. I personally sew my creases, according the NBNG method, and have found it the best method for perfect creases. HTH

I have the NBNG. I have found it great for making pom poms and cutting ribbon to lengths that I want it. I also use it for some of my bows to make sure that they are the same length on both sides and then the gator bite to crease
