The Bow Tie Styles

I've been asked to do this quite a few times - And here it is - All the bow tie styles that I offer in one easy to understand photo.  Each size and style has something special about it.  Obviously, your bow tie can look bigger or smaller depending on how you like to tie it also.  People have asked me to do sizes that aren't on here before - and it's generally not a problem for me.  

So there you have it.  Now I have to go and try to figure out how to post this picture on my store.

Store Update May 13 - More Seersucker, Gingham and Madras Bow Ties

Well, I've been sewing like crazy and I even have  a very wonderful helper  who has been sewing away as well.  There are many weddings this month that will be donning the Cordial Churchman bow ties and we've been having so much fun with the summer fabrics.  I've also been collecting some great gingham, madras, and seersucker fabrics to sew with.  Here are some photos of some of the new fabrics I've been working with.  I'm going to update my online store on May 13th (one week from today) with quite a few new fabric choices for you.  Here is a sneek peek at what's coming.  I'm also working on a very special surprise project that I think people will like quite a bit.  More on that soon!

Tell me what you think of these new fabrics, won't you?

And this is the point at which our modeling session had to end because of a very cute but sad little person who wanted some attention.


More sneak peeks coming soon!

Feedback from You

I really have the greatest customers ever.  I love it when you e-mail me when you receive your ties.  It makes me smile to know that you're so happy with your bow ties.  Here's a couple of e-mails I received in the past couple weeks:

"I received my Madras Plaid bow tie in the post today, and I couldn't stop smiling —it's perfect! Looking forward to wearing it to my holiday party on Friday. Thank you so much!"

"Hello Ellie, my lovely tweed bow tie arrived today here in the UK. I shall wear it at my next gig here in the North of England, gosh it is cold here at the moment, just as well i have this nice warm tweed tie! My wife said the tie makes me look cute :-)"

And here's a couple recent photos of very handsome gentlemen wearing bow ties (and one neck tie) that I've made. These first two are from some customers that wanted matching ties for an anniversary party. Aren't they so dapper?

Here's a neighbor of mine who may be one of a handful of guys in his high school who can tie a bow tie. He's a big USC Gamecocks fan so this bow tie was right up his alley.

Thank-you everyone for sending me pictures and feedback. I love it so much. It's so helpful to know what you like and what you want. And to see how other people besides my husband look in these bow ties.

Sunday's best.

I thought I'd share these cute pictures we snapped on Sunday evening after church. My boys are so adorable - all three of them.


D has on a candy cane bow tie and O has one that I made out of a men's neck tie.  Andy never wears a bow tie to Sunday church because it looks really weird with his preaching robe.  You wouldn't believe what a feat it is to get these boys dressed for church on Sundays.  Especially since O (almost 2) runs as fast as he can in the other direction when you try and put clothes on him.  You'd never know how wild he is looking at that sweet smile.
