We're busy tying bows!

With Summer winding down, we are going full bore getting ready for the busy Wreath Season. One large task that needs to be accomplished is to tie almost half a million bows - all by hand -- one at a time. This is a skill that takes some time to develop, and I've found that not everyone has the aptitude for it. You may find this video of tying a Victorian Bow interesting.

Each of the Bow Tying Crew Members take great pride in the finished look for each of their bows, as many of them are Wreath Decorators too; they understand that 'a nice bow is the most telling part of a nice wreath'. I'm sure you will agree: the fine bows our crew ties are a testament to the same high values your organization's leaders pass on to your young members!
