Great extra pair of hands for making bows. Making smart looking bows. Nice PINK case, great that all necessary items fit in the zippered case and main components store on the board. I do wish the instruction manual was just a little smaller--it will fit into the case if you kind of wrap the bottom around the board. I placed mine in sheet protector incase I do decide to carry it in the case (to help protect it). At the present I have not put it in the zippered case for fear of warping it. The round cushion pads for the spool holders, the plastic ribbon holders and "extra hands" clips, do not store on the board so I put an extra plastic zip bag to hold the extra items and the scissors so they do not roll around in the zipper bag. The item is made well and it does what it is supposed to do and more compact than the old version. You just need to practice to get the perfect bows. It is fairly easy to do. Youtube has a lot of tutorials that are helpful when you need a refresher or are having trouble understanding the manual.
