Default Help deciding best templates???

Ok my niece would like to learn to make bows, but I figured it would be easier on her to learn through templates I don't want her to feel overwhelmed and give up so can any of you ladies suggest the best templates for which bow types? For the right price. I make a lot of my bows freehand never dealt with a template but they look so much easier!! I don't want to make a purchase like that, that may not do the job that great, or be that helpful for her any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

WANT TO GET HER STARTED RIGHT AWAY SUMMER IS COMING GREAT TIME TO LEARN!

and Hey MAYBE I CAN LEARN A FEW TRICKS TOO!

I would love to know as well. I'm just starting bows and have done some by just measuring and marking, but think the templates would be so much faster...

I do crafting/sewing classes with my kids, nieces/nephew, and friends kids once a week. We just started doing bows a few weeks back. Each family purchased the templates from no bow no go, and the kids LOVE them. They are easy for them to use and understand. The girls have even started selling the bows to their friends... The ages of the kids in the class range from 8 to almost 11. I have even taught the 5 year-olds to make pinwheel bows...

I just recieved the No Bow No Go templates and my 8 yr old has been playing around with them. She hasn't made any bows yet but I don't think it will take much to teach her.

I have the NBNG templates and I think that for a young girl it she got a starter set she would be good to go!

I got the largest set but really I do not think she would need them unless she had a bow business.
