    Unbelievable!!! What a wonderful solution to one of my biggest headaches! I just sewed 4 bowties for a Christmas show and it took 3 days because i kept messing up when turning the points. I swore I’d never sew another bowtie again BUT now I can’t wait to try another one! thank you thank you thank you!
