    Had a lap quilt I was sewing, backed it with fleece, could not easily free motion, so I used my hehr? marker. I was pleansantly surprised it worked so well and I was able to quilt on top of the lines drawn. These were all straight lines drawn with a ruler, but it eliminated me using another way of marking and then contending with it not coming off as it should, just thought I would let everyone know, they do work and are cheap.

    I think you're talking about a Hera marker; it's a slim plastic piece you use to create a crease rather than using ink or pencil to mark. Kind of like using a thumbnail crease but much easier on the thumbs!

    I have one, but like with many notions I've bought, have never used it.

    You can have a look here:

    I'm sure it's available in many LQS and Online-Shops. I often use mine for marking grids! It really works great.
