Take a look and turn your next party spread from ho hum to WOW.


Everything Twine


I love Bakers twine but feel the name is a bit silly at this point.  We decided it would be better named EVERYTHING twine because well it is used for just about everything.  A quick search on Pinterest will lead you to about  a gazillion ways to use it.

What is your favorite way to use BAKERS EVERYTHING twine?

We are now carrying a 100 yard spool of twine in a wide assortment of colors.
