    Frixion pens - One Blogger's Opinion

    Some of you may have heard of Frixion Pens to use for marking quilts. Here is a link to a blog where the pens were tested. It has good information showing her results.

    Thanks for the link - I haven't jumped on the Frixion band wagon yet, probably won't either!

    I have used them and different colors - black, blue and red - I have never had any problems with them - just barely touch the iron to them and the line completely disappears - and I have never had a line re-appear - I love them.

    I love them and they do disappear without any problems. I don't use them on paper unless doodling. I'm not worried about them coming back in the cold weather. I live in VA and if it gets that cold here I think the last thing that I'll be worrying about are some small marks on a quilt here and there.

    I had seen another blog (don't remember where) and she did tests too. She found that it came out with warm water UNLESS your fabric was starched before you put your ink down. I like to use these pens because the do mark so well, but I do so sparingly

    I really love to use the Frixion pen. So far I have not had any problem with the ink reoccuring.

    I like my Frixion Pens. Who freezes fabrics anyway? I surely don't.

    I use them and what I've found is that they remove the fabric color. It happened to me when I used one on dark fabric.
