Default "Learn How to Make Bows" book & dvd -- good?

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask. I did a few different searches and couldn't find anything about it. It's a website that sells a DVD and instructions in eBook format for making "thousands of bows", and I'm just wondering if any of you have it, and if it's any good?

Thank you in advance for any information you have.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, many people who've gotten it were not impressed because 90% of the info you can get for free on this forum or find tutes online, on blogs or youtube. I saved the money & didn't buy it.

My dear, I have NEVER paid for any instructions. Not that I wouldn't. There is a really cute peppermint candy ribbon sculpture that is calling my name. But honestly, I could figure it out if I took the time.

There are tons of free resources out there:
http://www.girlythingsbows.com/
http://makebowsandmore.blogspot.com/
http://www.hair-hardware.com/
http://www.theribbonretreat.com/cust..._projects.aspx

Just do a search on here and on google for "free hair bow instructions".
Then pay for what you can't find and what people won't share with you (chances are if they won't share it, they paid for it & can't)

It's actually learnhowtomakebows.com
Thank you for all the tips. I have found a lot of free instructions, and I'm part Scottish so I really do hate to part with my money (HA!), but she's having a sale so I wondered if it was worth it or not.

Thanks muchly

I'm curious to see the authors portfolio of bows...Just to see.

I have only paid for one set of instructions, and they are ones that I couldn't find anywhere for free...I have found everything on the internet for free, and I have found amazing help from the women here for free. :0)

not a problem...we just want you to purchase something that is REALLY worth the money and not spend on some instructions that's easily attainable for F.R.E.E
