    I like their marking pencils VERY MUCH. They are easy to use and the marks stay on long enough for me. I actally have been buying these with JoAnn's 50% off coupons so now I have two of the pencils - one with white and one with the grey leads so I don't need to change leads (also an extra supply of leads for each). I've tried many marking tools over 25 + years of quilting and think these are the best so far for marking quilting patterns.

    I love the chalk and have had better luck with that than the pencils and pens.

    I love the pencils. I didn't want to pay the price for them so ordered the refills, one white and gray, and went to Wal-Mart and bought a package of 3 mechanical pencils for about $3 and use them. Be sure to buy a 9 mm mechanical pencil.
