    Wondering about Marking Fabric?

    This is a good article, especially the part about the Sharpies and Frixion pens we often see discussed on this board.

    She forgot to mention a plain old #2 pencil. I use one regularly for piecing and quilting. Also, my favorite marker is the little chalk filled plastic carrier with a serrated wheel. Comes off easily with just a soft rub of a hand towel.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    An interesting thing happened to me on the way to the machine...was having fits over some Y seams and had marked not only the strategic dot, but also the seam allowance so as to be sure to stay on course. All marked, oops, have to press one little area...poof, lines all gone. Totally forgot that I was using a Frixion marker.
