Hth
I had the same problem, but I started adding a few more alligator clips before I sewed down the middle and now they come out perfect!

I have the NBNG templates, but I bought the BBM twisted, and honestly, it was the best money I ever spent for my bows!

If you are comfortable with shaping the bow, you can make your own templates. If you want that part taken care of, them the BBM would help!


Ribbon can vary up to 1/8" and still be grouped into a certain size. 7/8" ribbon might be anywhere from 3/4" to 1" (1/8 narrower or wider than it actually states) so the holding track is sized to accomodate the widest ribbon. If the ribbon is on the narrower side and seems to slip, you can use a clip to hold it in place, but once you stitch the center, the loops should not move at all. If they do shift, try taking a few more stitches closer together. Several layers need to be secured to hold the twist.

HTH!

I still can't make twisteds with the BBM...although they look a lot closer than before, i guess thats something! I need to practice more. SO it won't magically make the twisteds, but it does help you along.

I have the BBM ultimate and never have to reshape mine? But I'm careful to keep the loops right, and make sure they're even before putting them under the tabs. I think it's great. Mine look SO much better once I got it. And I sew, I don't tie. I know some people do, but I just never got them to look right that way.

I too have problems with the BBM twistdr and have had far better success handfolding and using the gator bite to help crease.
