Ok, total quilting newbie here. I went to Joanns the other day in seach of marking pencils and was totally confused and overwhelmed by the selection. They had at least 4 different white marking pencils, 3 graphite ones, etc. etc. I couldn't even tell the difference between the different graphite pencils.
I have NO IDEA. The prices ranged from $2 to $12. I didn't get anything b/c I cannot afford to spend a dime on something that's a waste.
Is that $11 graphite pencil worth it? Do the ones that say they come off with water, really come off with water?
There was one that says it comes off with water or ironing. Anybody used that one? (I didn't write down the brand, sorry!)
What pencils do you use? What brand, specifically?
I am looking for something to mark dark fabrics, and light. What works best for you?
