Default Re: For a BEGINNER bowmaker, which is better...NGNB or BBM?

I have had my BBM templates for a while now and I love them! I make 3 sizes and I can even make stacked with them. They were super easy to learn too!! I can't speak for the other because I have never tried, but I do love the classics from BBM!! I will try to post a pic later.

I just got the twisted from BBM yesterday and i LOVE it!!! I have been making bows for several years and could never make a twisted look right. It is great and anyone would be able to use it. Just to give you an idea, my 1st 7/8 width ribbon twisted looked just ok and my 2nd looks good enough to sell! I've only made one with 1 1/2 ribbon and it's just ok (didn't get the loops completely even) but I know with practice it'll be great! I am so glad that I ordered it! I have the templates for "classic" bows that I ordered when I also ordered my gator bite and I am assuming those are kind of like the NGNG ones. I like to use those for classic bows and pinwheels. Good luck in whatever you decide to go with!

I've got the 9 piece NBNG set and the BBM twisted templates. I love this combo! I can make pretty much any bow, and my TBB's always look perfect!

Not a great pic, but just wanted to show what the classic bows look like from BBM. This is all 3 sizes.Picture 187.jpg

Picture 188.jpg
I included the 4th of July one because she also includes directions for this type bow.

I have the Rib N Raps templates and Gator bite. This is what I would suggest and the Twisted template from BBM. The templates are sturdier than NBNG and MUCH easier to use Gator Bite with so I NEVER sew any bows!

I have both of them and it depends on the type of bows you want to make. The NBNG I like because I can make more sizes the the BBM. The BBM I like how she has different ways to crease the center of the bows. I have nothing bad to say about either of them.
