    Where do you buy kitchen twine?

    I had a spool of kitchen twine that took me years to use up. Now that I need some more, I can't find it. I've been to several specialty stores and the grocery store, all to no avail. Is it hiding in plain sight? Because sticking 100 toothpicks in something to hold it together just isn't as convenient! :-) And while we're talking twine, what about cheesecloth? Can't find that, either.
    If this is the worst thing that happens all year, I think I can deal with it!

    I've seen kitchen twine at both Target and WalMart.

    For years and years my mom used crochet thread. A big spool is easy to find and lasts forever.

    No matter how big or soft your bed is, you still have to get out of it.

    I've tried BB&B, Target, and Wal-Mart. What section did you find them in? I haven't tried Cost Plus or WS--WS is too far away from me to drive to in this heat! :-) Crochet thread might be the ticket here. Thanks for the ideas.

    I have found kitchen twine in the gadgets section of places like BB&B, Target, and Linens and Things.

    Fred Meyers, Home Depot or any place that sells hardware. They will have twine. Use only the white cotton not the plastic stuff.

    I think I picked up cheesecloth at Safeway the last time I bought some (in the kitchen gadget aisle). The twine I have I think came from a kitchen outlet store. Good luck!

    I was hunting for kitchen twine at the grocery not long ago...couldn't find any...so I went to the meat counter and asked the butcher where in the store I would find it...he didn't know but...asked me how much I needed and just cut off several yards and gave it to me.

    Try hardware stores or hardware depts, just look for white twine.
    I have a funky twine holder, black iron, and the string has to come out from the center, not the outside! Also hard to find. Try Osh!
