good bye to the old and hello to the new - baker's twine


If you have made a purchase through Stitchbird Fabrics your parcel will have arrived tied with a piece of red trim.  Unfortunately the red trim is coming to an end and based on the age of the spool it came from my guess is that I will not be able to re-order.  A google search did not even find Lawrence Textiles :(

So what to use in the future.....


Baker's Twine!  Not only will parcels come tied with Baker's Twine you can also buy Baker's Twine in the shop here.  With names like Maraschino, Peapod, Lemon Drop and Pink Sorbet who can resist.

Just a few photos to tempt...

Have seen it around and wondering if it was avaiable here in NZ. :-) Will you be getting any spools of mandarin / lilac / carribean to sell by the spool? Thanks

i just used my red trim to hang a large mercury glass ornament on our tree. looks like we went to the same place to get our twine - i am loving mine but have also found a new source - google est - they are in melbourne - $45 for a kilo of red and white twine - a heavenly kilo!!!

merry christmas! x
