Default I think I'm the only one that will say...

That I wasn't overly impressed with TOTT instructions. There wasn't anything in there that I didn't already know by buying previous instructions and hanging out on this site. They would be great for a beginner, but I've already mastered the folds they have in their site, so they did nothing for me. And I hate that they don't have instructions for the bows without having to use the wooden maker.

Anyone else feel like this?

I thought the same thing!!! I do think they are very well written and organized for someone who doesn't have any basics, but I think if you search hard enough most of the folds can be found for free here! the only fold I got out of it that I didn't already have is the "basic" boutique. I have used the bow maker only for that fold. I do love her site and think she is awsome to work with and as I said they are GREAT inst. for those who are just starting out.

Well, it's better to get it out, right? But I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend TOTTS, regardless (for those who wants to BUY instructions). If, for those who already mastered the folds and what nots, yeah, what's in TOTTS, are already out there a.k.a no point buying paid instructions.

Off to get my 3rd coffee!

Well now I feel better. I have not bought them, but was feeling like I was missing out without them. I may not be an expert at making the bows, don't think I've mastered them, yet. But I think I can find all the info I need and just practice.

It's a great set of instructions for the beginner bow maker, I would definitely recommend to someone that's looking for a good set. They are easy to follow and well organized. I do agree with you on one thing, there should be a set of instructions without using the bow maker, I really don't like that thing it gets in my way .
I bought TOTTS on youcanmakethis.com and it was instructions totally without the bow maker. I do admit, Michelle's instructions are MUCH easier to follow as well as the "cheating butterfly fold" thread that was posted earlier this week.
