    Marking fabric

    I have searched and tried many fabric marking tools and liked the Friction pens a little more than anything else. BUT stumbled upon new Friction markers. Have been using the fine point Friction marker now for weeks to mark my current quilt and it is the best tool ever! No ghost lines because you don't have to press down to make your mark.The ink just flows with the lightest touch. It disappears perfectly with ironing and also with washing and does not reappear with exposure to cold if washed. I encourage you to try them and see what you think! You can mark away and no disappearing lines.

    Elicia, Thanks for the tip. I will give them a try. Alex mentioned them in one of her Live Lessons a couple weeks ago. At that
    time I just forgot about it. But since you think they are better than the pens, and I use the pens all the time, I will give them a
    try. HelenW
