It was FriXion erasable gel pens. I said these are great. I use them in my quilting! He said Really? Well take a lot more. I have cases of theses things to give out. He reached in a box and dumped a handfull of the pens in my bag. I said these cost a lot in the quilt shops. He said they aren't sold in quilt shops. He said why would a quilt shop sell office supplies? I laughed and said well some do. I got red, black and yellow FriXion pens. Enough to share with my guild members. The yellow was the only one labeled highlighter!
    Please BellaBoo do more research on the frixon pens. I know one well known quilter is telling everyone they know - no to frixon - the pens come back to life at some point in time. Actually Dusty Farrell used to sell these pens in his booth and just recently stopped a few months back.

    If you wash them with detergent, and not just iron them out- they are out of the fabric for good. Do test them on dark fabrics though as they leave white lines, and some I haven't been able to wash out (most have).


    I like the highlighters for delicate fabrics like organza- the ballpoint pens tend to tear them. I use the ballpoint on cotton.
