Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
asked: "I have seen the board with pegs that you use for making bows. Where did you get that? Who makes it?"
I know of two different products out there that have pegs for making bows. There might be more products like them out there, but these are the two I know of.
- We reviewed one a few years ago. It's the
The Ultimate Crafter’s Companion
. Besides the bow maker it is also a scoring and dry embossing tool.
- There also is the
The Peg Bow Maker
from Becca Feeken.
