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

Ok. Time is closing in on me and I have to make a decision on which templates to purchase for my sis birthday.

So I need to know specifically....

Which is the best template for a BEGINNER with NO BOWMAKING experience to make basic bows? NGNB or BBM?

This is SO confusing. I am leaning towards the NGNB starter kit along with the BBM twisted bow templates. But just dont know. OMG decisions decisions.

Thanks for your help.

I would say go with that idea. I've been looking into this also and most say the NBNG templates are great but the BBM twisted template is better to use than the NBNG twisted. I already go the BBM twisted to start, though haven't used it yet.

Granna, do you have the "Ultimate Kit from BBM"? Also do you have a pic of a basic bow with your BBM?

Rachel, which package do you have from NGNB? And do you have a pic of a basic bow?

Ughhh...I'm so confused but keep the answers coming.

If you ladies have a chance, I too would like to see pictures of bows made by each template. Thank you.

Rachel,

Are you speaking of the "twisted" boutique bow or the "basic" boutique bow?

I have owned both sets and I prefer the BBM to NBNG. I'll be honest with you~you can make the templates yourself for the NBNG system with scrapbook chipboard. I made some based on instructions from a tutorial I bought for something different, then ordered NBNG and realized I had pretty much the exact same thing. To me, NBNG still relies on you being able to straighten the loops out and that is something that I just couldn't get right. I don't have to monkey with my loops with BBM.

However, I find there to be a learning curve on both products.
