All You Need To Make Your Bow Brand New

We all have a bow tie or two that we've worn out one too many nights or been on the dance floor busting a move when we pulled off our bow to break free to the music, only to find out the next morning that not only do we have a splitting hang-over but there is an unsightly fraying in the bow and a loose thread or two have appeared.

Not to worry, this isn't the end of that bow tie. All you need are some tweezers and a pair of seamstress thread / yarn trimming scissors like the ones above. Generally speaking I don't need the tweezers, but they can come in handy if you are in a tight corner and don't want to cut into the silk. In this case, use one hand to use the tweezers to grab the strand and your favorite surgeons hand to cut the silk strands.

If you do a good job the bow will be as good as new, if you miss, you can always come and buy a new bow tie from us at

Happy trimming!
