I added some photos on the Star Bow machine that I still have along with a bow umbrella my grandmother had made back in 1969 for a friend's shower. I've posted this on my blog: http://tnantique.blogspot.com/
Hi, Just a note for a little history on the bow machines. My Dad, Richard Brown, designed this bow machine back in the early 1960s while we were living in La Habra, CA. I still have the original prototype and it's case and some ribbon. I have fond memories of making bows for Christmas when I was a child. It's great to see another machine!!!!
