..from a fellow lefty...I feel your pain! Our instructor had never taught a lefty before so I had to figure out a few things for myself. Not sure what tip you are using but for drop flowers us lefties have to start with our knuckles at the "9" o'clock position and twist them around to the "3"o'clock position, release pressure and lift up! Hope that helps!

Something else I figured out that when you make the parchment bags...you have to fold the left point of the parchment paper around first and then the right point, even though we want to do it the other way..otherwise when you screw the coupler on, you would be twisting it in the opposite direction of the way the parchment is wrapped!

I tried that too but I will try agian I can't let a drop flower beat me. I was the first lefty for my teacher as well she never did figure out how to help me it would drive her crazy to watch me make roses..lol I ended up among the few that made really good roses. thanks be blessed
