However, I think I'm going to order this as the selection is good and the shipping to Canada is decent

Apparently I missed something along the line. What is the rage for the bakers twine?

Just the current fad.... in button holes, on tags, in place of ribbon, just anywhere you feel like. I bought a 20 yard spool for Christmas time projects - just enough for my projects. I still have some left. I can't imagine buying all these in large quantities just because it is less expensive (per yard) and ending up with a bunch I don't end up using as the current fad fades.

Do they have linen thread or twine? I saw some but wondered how soft and pliable it is.

I love the PTI stuff but shipping to Canada is expensive. I got a good sampler from the Twinery on Etsy:
Bling Bunches Sampler Pack 15 yards each of 11 by BakersBlingShop

I have PTI button twine. It's pretty soft and quite fibrous (i.e. it frays easily)

I received my bakers twine in the mail from Really Reasonable Ribbon on Saturday the 2nd. That was really fast. Great little sample. Kathy

Here's where I got mine - 12 colors, a total of 60 yards. I love the airmail twine as my sister's birthday is the 4th of July, so I am always looking for things red, white and blue.

at Pick Your Plum-4.95 is a good price but normally $15? really?? I paid about half that for rolls the same size (actually longer-the ones I got are 250 yds).

I bought a selection of twine from Greenmunch, Bakers Twine | Canada, and they have great prices and great options for choosing several different colours in 15-yard samples, or you can even choose 2-yard samples and get free shipping. Even better, they are in Alberta- Sherwood Park. They carry both Divine Twine and The Twinery. I was very happy with my purchase from them!

Don't forget to watch GroopDealz, too. Every so often they'll have the 250 yard spools for $8 and I think they're usually $10 or $12.

Default Making your own Baker's Twine

Actually I did see a tutorial on making your on Baker's Twine. I can't remember where I saw it. Might have been on You Tube. If you Google "making your own" I bet that you can find it.

The instructions included these supplies:
ruler
masking tape
marker
twine
scotch tape
As I remember it I wrapped the ruler with masking tape
used scotch tape to hold one end of the twine to one end of the ruler and wrapped the twine around the ruler in a spiraling fashion and attaching it at the other end with another piece of scotch tape.
Using the marker I made random marks along both sides and removed the twine. It does indeed work out great.

The draw back is the tedium of doing this for many colors. I think if one has the money that buying an assortment is the way to go.

The homemade is cute but to me, it doesn't look exactly like the original. I guess I'm picky that way. I don't use a lot of twine anyway though, and the rolls I have will probably last me forever.

I was in A.C. Moore just yesterday and they have a great selection of Baker's Twine in 4 different colors per package and in more reasonable lengths for cards. They even had Halloween colors.

On a side note, they had a really big package of 6 different colored hemp for 6.99 which I bought with my 50% off coupon.
